This week (presumably beginning Monday), Summerfields is adding an “express lane” for food to go. It will accept only points, but it sounds more convenient than waiting in line if you’re in a rush. No word yet on the menu or where specifically it will be located.
It’s a pretty interesting move, considering Summerfields already does takeout (and, unlike Usdan, doesn’t charge 50 cents extra and has it for both lunch and dinner); perhaps they’ve realized the Usdan Cafe’s shortcomings as the primary “to-go” venue. Does anyone (Jen? Becky?) have figures on traffic at the Cafe or takeout at lunch at the Marketplace? It’d be interesting to see if this is in response to diminished traffic at Usdan.
