Lunch special: Rising health concerns will cause industry operators to improve their menusAbstractFood Service Contractors in the US
Over the five years to 2017, the Food Service Contractors industry has benefited from an increase in consumer spending on discretionary items, such as tickets to sporting and music events, as well as increased travel spending. Increased business and consumer spending over the past five years has contributed to industry expansion; the industry is also benefiting from the increased propensity of businesses, healthcare facilities and educational institutions to outsource their food services. Over the coming years, consumer spending and corporate profit are both expected to grow, meaning consumers and businesses are likely to increase their spending at food service locations.
Industry companies provide foodservices at institutional, governmental, commercial or industrial locations. Examples of facilities where foodservices are provided include airports, food courts, college and university cafeterias and recreation and sports venues.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
