What are the key findings of the research?

  • As of August 2020, more respondents are comfortable grabbing food from a fast food restaurant (71%) versus dining at a restaurant with outside seating (61%). Only 38% are willing to sit inside a restaurant to dine.
  • A dichotomy regarding sustainability was uncovered with 70% stating they believe single use plastics from restaurants are unnecessarily wasteful and bad for the environment, 65% stating that single use plastics are essential for safety and cleanliness during COVID-19.
  • The study showed that single use plastic preferred choice stems from consumer distrust, with one in three people responding that they are not sure restaurants can be trusted with cleaning and disinfecting.
