US Restaurant Industry and Consumer Trends Analyzed in New Study Published at MarketPublishers.com

08 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Despite a sluggish economy, the U.S. restaurant industry is projected to expand by 4.2% in 2012. Total restaurant industry sales are expected to reach a record high of USD 632 billion this year – a 3.5% y-o-y increase, which is chiefly attributed to seafood, two-thirds of which is consumed away from home in the U.S. In addition, overall restaurant industry employment will reach 12.9 million, accounting for 10% of the total U.S. workforce. This should be the 13th straight year that restaurant job growth would outpace the overall economy.

However, restaurants are still citing the economy as one of the top challenges. Food costs and building and maintaining sales volumes could also threaten the continuation of the 2010-2011 sales recovery.
