"Whenever we’re putting our strategic plans together we use NPD's SupplyTrack. It gives us a perspective on which segments we should target, the different products we need to focus on, where we have holes in our portfolio, and what are the things we need to innovate around."
"NPD's SupplyTrack offers the complete view of what’s going on either at a national or regional level. "
"NPD’s Checkout analysis was helpful to understand how our customers were using a category of products at Limited Service Restaurants and at Jack in the Box. As a result of the analysis, we identified an important area of opportunity for our teams to focus on, in order to grow visits to Jack in the Box. "
