Pizza Market in the U.S.: Foodservice and Retail, 2nd EditionPizza remains one of the most popular foods in the U.S., and the pizza market presents an ongoing opportunity for foodservice and retail pizza marketers, but a challenge as well: how do you gain market share in a saturated market?
Packaged Facts’ report, Pizza Market in the U.S.: Foodservice and Retail, 2nd Edition, gives pizza market participants a wealth of insights and information to help them navigate the industry.
Competition for each slice of the pizza market has intensified, so in response retail pizza marketers and pizza restaurants are ratcheting up the quality bar. Retail pizza marketers look to keep consumers from migrating to restaurant fare by offering them more options aligned with health and wellness trends. Pizza restaurants seek to address competition from the broader restaurant market, as fast casualization alters the fast food landscape.
The frozen pizza market has been sliding, with a drop in consumption among the product’s historical base demographics during 2010-2014. The pizza market has responded by improving the nutritional values of frozen pizzas to create a health halo for frozen pizza. And while there are slightly fewer pizza options on menus since 2010, restaurants are countering with flatbread innovation through limited-time offers to incentivize customers.
