Fratelli Fresh Grocer Reveals Shopping Trends by Sydney Suburb
Fratelli Fresh transformed its Italian restaurant business into a fully-fledged grocery and meal delivery service, Fratelli Fresh Grocer, a week ago, as Sydneysiders turned to the convenience of delivery services for culinary comfort and household essentials.
The initial list of items available for delivery – including fresh meals (beef lasagne, vegetarian lasagne, pumpkin soup, chicken and vegetable soup), house-made pasta sauces (Bolognese, pesto, lamb ragu), dry goods (pasta, flour, sugar, rice), tinned produce, fresh fruit and vegetables, and beverages – has greatly expanded, due to demand.
The service has been bolstered with family meal packs – which include all the components for a healthy, four-person meal – such as DIY pizza and salad kits, family-sized roast chicken dinner, beef burger pack, comforting bangers and mash, and a bacon and eggs breakfast combination.
The initial drinks list of Fratelli Fresh wine, six-packs of beer, and popular spirits has also been boosted with DIY cocktail kits spanning G&T, Negroni, Aperol spritz, and Margarita.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said goods were being delivered Sydney-wide, however the Shire and northern suburbs were the busiest delivery zones, followed by the eastern suburbs and the inner west.
“Customers Sydney-wide are interested in pantry staples such as pasta, rice, flour, tinned tomatoes, fresh fruit and vegetables, and fresh meat, as well as all-essential toilet roll and hand soap, but beyond that are definite preferences in certain suburbs,” Mr Pash said.
“Our family meal kits have been a big hit in the Shire, Mosman and Manly, particularly our build-your-own pizza kits and roast chicken meal packs; house-made sauces, dried pasta and cocktail kits are doing well in the eastern suburbs; whereas our house-made soups and Bolognese sauce have been the biggest hit in the inner west suburbs of Enmore and Marrickville.”
