This food and beverage industry bundle consists of the following reports:

Foodservice Landscape in the U.S.: Chain Limited-Service Restaurants

Driven by incremental improvement in macroeconomic drivers, a brighter consumer outlook, aggressive operator menu innovation and LTO experimentation, quick-service (including fast casual) and snack and beverage restaurant sales are on track for moderate growth. But among consumers, price sensitivity is still top of mind: 68% of limited-service restaurant (LSR) users say low price would influence their decision to go to a fast food restaurant and 24% citing it as “most important.” Operators, also constrained by highly competitive grocery aisle pricing, will have limited pricing power even while they will continue to face guest traffic challenges into 2014. In an environment in which stealing share remains the key to growth, menu innovation and keeping up with broader consumer trends remains essential.

Foodservice Landscape in the U.S.: Chain Limited-Service Restaurants analyses the industry and consumer trends shaping this highly competitive environment, focusing on the quick-service, fast casual, and snack and beverage restaurant segments.

Key content includes:
  • Studying the degree to which 26 different factors influence consumers’ decisions to go to a “fast food restaurant”” and which are the most important factors in that decision, with accompanying demographic analysis and industry responses/examples.
  • Guest traffic analysis for quick-service restaurants and snack and beverage restaurants, with daypart and chain vs. independent share, including 2008-2013 QSR guest traffic trending for the segment’s key consumer groups, and a strong focus on HH income trending by restaurant brand, including leading LSR beef/burger, chicken, pizza, and fast casual chains.
  • Limited-service restaurant menu trending, focusing on menu item penetration by restaurant segment, including depth of menu items, limited-timed offers, mini-size menu items, top proteins, preparation methods, and beverages.
  • Health and wellness trending, including calorie count trends and impact; healthy menu claim trends; clean food trends; kids’ menu health; and healthful restaurant concepts to watch. We also present analysis of two consumer groups with divergent views regarding the importance of nutritional value, regular exercise, healthy diet and weight management. We gauge their restaurant, health and diet preferences, and the relationship to their restaurant brand choices.
  • How technology trends are shaping the limited-service restaurant industry, with a focus on increasingly mobile consumers and emerging mobile payment technologies.
  • Studying the impact of macro-economic drivers on limited-service restaurant industry growth, including an economic forecast through 2014, with supporting macroeconomic analysis; the effect of HH income and employment trends on limited-service restaurants; and the effect of consumer and commodity price trends on limited-service restaurants; with price trends and forecasts.
  • A market size and forecast through 2015 for full-service restaurants, limited-service restaurants, cafeteria/buffets and snack/beverage establishments; same-store sales analysis of major brands by limited-service segment; and consumer restaurant spend trending, by segment.
The report also provides analysis of leading restaurant brands operating in four limited-service restaurant segments: snack and beverage, quick service, fast casual and cafeteria/buffet.

Foodservice Landscape in the U.S.: Chain Full-Service Restaurants

Driven by aggressive menu innovation, value-driven price point strategies, positive momentum from macroeconomic drivers, and a brighter consumer outlook, full-service restaurant sales will increase 3.4% in 2013. The recovery is bypassing more “middle class” casual chains, such as Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Chili’s. Thanks in part to value pricing and aggressive menu innovation, same-store sales performance at these types of destinations has at least been mixed. Many family restaurant chains, which rely disproportionately on lower-to-middle-income consumers, remain vulnerable to price sensitivity and reduced guest traffic. However, 2013 sales trends suggest building momentum, which could result in sales above our current expectations.
