Foodservice Market in US: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increased snacking and indulgence consumption is notably driving the foodservice market growth in US, although factors such as rising competition from the unorganized fast-food sector may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the foodservice industry in US. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Foodservice Market Driver in US

Food consumption patterns and preferences have undergone a notable change, as many consumers are replacing their routine meals with on-the-go snacks and light meals. Over the past ten years, the number of consumers who prefer snacks has seen a rise in the US. Fast-paced lifestyles often compel consumers to skip their meals and consume on-the-go food. Similarly, the consumption of bakery products, such as doughnuts, bread, rolls, pies, and other similar products for breakfast, has surged in the US. Thus, vendors in the US are extensively offering healthy food options, such as doughnut sandwiches that include healthy ingredients. Though consumers have become more health-conscious and prefer healthy snacks, there is a steady growth in demand for premium food varieties, such as premium doughnuts, cakes, cookies, and pastries. A large percentage of consumers prefer premium and prepared snacks and are open to trying new and different flavors. Consequently, the demand for snacking at cafes and bars has increased significantly in the US.

Key Foodservice Market Trend in US

One of the trends that are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period is the increasing popularity of food trucks among consumers. Food trucks mainly offering ethnic foods have gained popularity in the Texas state of the US, whereas the number of food trucks in North Carolina has almost tripled during the last five years. This popularity is expected to further increase during the forecast period mainly due to the convenience foods offered by food trucks. Also, food trucks offering various cuisines such as Italian, Greek, classic American, and others are expected to gain popularity among consumers. The relatively low initial investment of food trucks is attracting more people to come up with their own food trucks. Therefore, the number of food trucks in the US is expected to increase during the forecast period. 

Key Foodservice Market Challenge in US

The foodservice market in US is experiencing a challenge from the growth of the unorganized fast-food sector. The number of unorganized fast food vendors, such as those that sell through street stalls and trucks, is exponentially increasing across the country. Such vendors offer a variety of fast food items at affordable prices, which are preferred by price-conscious customers. There are various consumer categories (based on income levels) in the urban areas of the US, and many vendors are starting fast food businesses to tap the demand. The growth of this segment is expected to increase during the forecast period, which will affect the foodservice market in US negatively.

This foodservice market analysis report of US also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
