The article addresses the issue of food portability in the U.S. According to "Food Service Director" magazine's 2008 Portability Study, of the operators surveyed in 2008, 75 percent said they offer portable menu items, up markedly from 62 percent in 2007. Even though more customers than ever are looking for foods made-to-order, a significant number of them also want to be able to carry those foods away from the cafeteria.
