 Landscape in the U.S.: Restaurant Industry and Consumer Trends, 2nd Edition. While the U.S. economic recovery remains fragile, we find much for the restaurant industry to celebrate. Packaged Facts forecasts restaurant growth of 4.2% in 2012, on the heels of 6% market growth in 2011. Nonetheless, the industry continues to face significant challenges. For the past three years, guest traffic volume has come entirely from population growth, not usage increase. Restaurant operators must also contend with the increased numbers of lower-spending guests and the loss of higher-income patrons. Food commodity price increases could also threaten the continuation of the 2010-2011 sales recovery. This report provides the guidance industry participants need to understand industry and consumer trends shaping the U.S. foodservice landscape. Market size and forecasts for restaurant and drinking establishment sales, same-store sales analysis of major brands for 2005-2011, and consumer restaurant spending by segment for 2007-2010 are included.

Coffee and Tea Foodservice Trends in the U.S. Coffee and tea remains a key foodservice industry growth driver, buoyed by aggressive menu innovation and platform expansion, a strong foothold in the breakfast daypart, consumer lifestyle needs, and some of the lowest price points in an industry battling a down economy. This report provides industry participants with essential guidance on trends including menu pricing and discounting; coffee commodity pricing trends; promotional activity & strategy; flavor innovation; coffee and tea foodservice health trends; and retail coffee and tea brands used in foodservice. The study also includes case studies of category leaders in coffee and tea foodservice.

Prepared Foods and Ready-to-Eat Foods at Retail: The New Competition to Foodservice. Hoping to parlay recession-based foodservice-to-retail migration into long-term gains, food retailers continue to ratchet up their prepared foods and ready-to-eat programs. Packaged Facts estimates that grocery stores and supermarkets will grow prepared- and ready-to-eat foods sales by more than 7% in 2010, and our proprietary consumer research reveals that 64% of adult consumers have gotten ready-to-eat/heat-and-eat food from a grocery store or supermarket in the last month. This guide offers the foodservice and retail industries new insight into the highly competitive prepared and ready-to-eat foods space. Relying heavily on proprietary consumer research analysis, the report provides “consumer drilldowns” and psychographic profiling, offering foodservice operators and retailers unique access to the minds of prepared foods consumers.
