Take-Out Packaging Buying Guide

Enjoy a Delicious Meal on the Go


A local restaurant offers a take-out and delivery option. After the customer has paid the delivery man, they open their take-out package to start enjoying what should have been a delicious meal. Unfortunately, the sauces were not packaged separately from the main dish and has spilled over everything in the box. On top of that, the oils and sauces from the dish have begun to leak through the thin box, causing a mess and leaving the customer questioning if they will order from this restaurant again.

Whether your food service business provides meal prep, offers take-out and delivery, or transports catered food to venues, getting quality containers to keep food fresh until it hits the table is mandatory for a successful business. Prevent sauces from spilling and packages from leaking with CiboWares' selection of durable and reliable take-out packaging.
