Foodservice Tea Market Trends in the U.S.

In the all-new report Foodservice Tea Market Trends in the U.S., Packaged Facts forecasts tea sales at foodservice establishments to increase steadily during 2015-2018. Given the current industry momentum and tea’s pivotal role in helping limited-service players grow lunch and afternoon sales, tea sales growth rates will inevitably trend upward over the next few years. While coffee has had the wind at its back, the $20 billion foodservice tea market may have the edge in future growth momentum.

Developments including Starbucks’ leveraging of the Teavana brand to grow its own tea sales, Peet’s move to add Mighty Leaf Tea to its menu in a similar fashion, tea additions and upgrades among a slew of major players, continued growth in tea foodservice and retail chains such as Argo Tea Café and DAVIDsTEA to drive increased awareness, interest and usage of a broadening variety of teas. As foodservice operators continue to frame tea as a premium beverage, they will likely also increase the price per cup, further increasing total sales.
