As foodservice readies to move into the second half of 2022, the away from home market for food and beverages finds itself vacillating between good news and bad news on an almost daily basis. COVID-19 concerns are less intense than they once were, demand for foodservice is up, and many leading chain restaurants are seeing positive results.
