If you're a takeaway restaurant owner, you know that there are many things that can go wrong with your business. From customers getting sick from food poisoning to delivery drivers not being able to find your location, there are many factors that can affect your bottom line and ruin your reputation as a brand. However, one thing has always been certain: taking away customers' orders is the best way to guarantee repeat business!

The Right Material Choice

The right material choice for your custom boxes is important. You want to make sure that you choose the most eco-friendly option, but also one that will hold up under the rigors of a busy take away business.

Plastic is the most expensive option and can be recycled, but it's also difficult to reuse once it's been used. Paper and cardboard are cheaper alternatives, but they cannot be recycled in most cases and require more maintenance than plastic or metal containers.


  • Why be eco-friendly?

  • How to be eco-friendly:

  • Use recyclable packaging. This is the best way to ensure that your takeaway boxes are fully recycled after use, and it can also help reduce waste in general. For example, if you use paper bags instead of plastic ones (which are less likely to break down), then they can be used again when they're emptied at a recycling center. If necessary, look into purchasing reusable food containers that have lids that fit over them tightly like Tupperware containers do! You'll find these on Etsy and Amazon as well as other sites like Ikea or Target stores—they're super cheap but still durable enough for daily use by customers who want something sturdy yet stylishly designed too!

Cost Efficient

The cost of takeaway boxes is one of the most important factors in determining whether or not it’s worth your time to get involved. A cheap takeaway box may look good on paper, but what happens when you need a replacement? How many times can they be used before they start to look shabby and damaged?

A good takeaway box should last for years, so make sure that whatever material you choose is durable enough to withstand regular use – especially if there are food products inside! There are quite a few different materials out there such as plastic, metal and cardboard that can all be used depending on what kind of packaging needs doing (and which seems best suited).

First Impression

  • Use a logo or brand name.

  • Use a colour to stand out from the crowd.

  • Choose a message that is relevant to your customers and will appeal to them on an emotional level, such as “we love our customers” or “we want you to be happy with what we do”.

Consider what to put in your takeaway boxes.

It’s important to consider the cost of putting things in your takeaway boxes, but you also need to consider their eco-friendliness. If you want your customers to buy from you again, then it’s best if they don't have any doubts about how sustainable your business is.

Make sure that what's in the box will be attractive and appealing for customers. The same goes for text on food packaging: make sure there are no words or phrases that could potentially offend someone who might be offended by them (e.g., sexual references).

In summary, the custom boxes you use should reflect your brand and be designed to be informative, easy to read, and convenient. They’re not just there for decoration anymore!
