Bob Evans Competes with Retail

Proving that extending menu items into retail doesn’t have to involve a grocery or convenience store, Bob Evans is taking the concept of retail into its own stores.

Bob Evans restaurants, known for their farm-style menu and aesthetic, are trying out a grab-and-go concept called Taste of the Farm in an effort to update the company’s image.

So far, the new concept has been implemented in just one of the chain’s 713 restaurants, near its Columbus, Ohio, headquarters in the suburb of Westerville. Bob Evans representatives say it will likely announce a broader roll out in mid June, after the release of its annual financials.
