Trends in U.S. Hospital, Nursing Home and Residential Facility Foodservice. The future of hospital, nursing home, and residential care foodservice is bright, with expenditures reaching $34.0 billion in 2010, a 3.7% increase from 2009, according to the findings in this report. Underpinning the largest and fastest-growing sector of the U.S. economy, hospital, nursing home and residential care foodservice programs can count on serving an increasing pool of patients, employees, and visitors. For foodservice operators, a shrinking pool of mouths to feed is simply not on the menu, which informs much of our positive outlook. This Packaged Facts report provides insight and analysis on hospital, nursing home and residential facility foodservice trends and policies shaping sales growth and potential, as well as in-depth profiles of hospital foodservice programs and hospital and nursing home foodservice contractors.

Trends in U.S. Military and Correctional Facility Food and Foodservice. The U.S. Department of Defense is the nation's largest employer—and a gateway to more than 3.2 million people. But the scope of military reach extends to the more than 12 million military members, families and retirees who depend on its wide net of retail, military installation, and combat food and foodservice operations, which have an international reach that incorporates everything from food and beverage supply to foodservice management to restaurant franchising. For food and foodservice manufacturers, suppliers and operators, speaking the language of the military is big business, which this must-read report from Packaged Facts will help you translate into increased sales.

Education Foodservice Market in the U.S.: Elementary, Secondary and Higher Education. With restaurant foodservice sales generally under pressure, education foodservice sales remain a bright spot: Packaged Facts forecasts in this report that foodservice sales at primary, secondary, and postsecondary schools will reach $41.15 billion in 2010, up 2.5% from 2009. Within the next five years, this market will continue to evolve, as policy makers ready their revisions to school meal nutritional guidelines. We believe these changes are widespread and significant enough that they will ripple out of schools and into the home, helping to reshape how consumers interact with food. This report provides the insight industry participants need to understand today’s evolving educational foodservice market, by mapping key trends and policies shaping the K-12 and university sales growth and by profiling a range of school district programs, college foodservice programs, and educational foodservice contractors.

Hotel Foodservice Trends in the U.S. Emerging from a recession that drained almost 18% in foodservice revenue in just two years, the hotel foodservice industry is in the midst of reinventing itself, experimenting en masse with new menu, design and technology concepts that are reshaping how hotel guests experience hotel food and beverage offerings. This report covers the U.S. hotel foodservice industry, which provides restaurant, bar, cafe, catering and room service foodservice options to its guests. In addition to detailed trend analysis, the report provides thorough marketing and forecasting metrics, growth factor analysis, and in-depth analysis of leading hotel foodservice operations (including foodservice strategies by company and brand; brand characteristics, and food-driven trend adaption). It also illustrates how hotels can empower their foodservice offerings by tying them into the powerful Facebook social networking platform, Twitter concierge services, and even creating their own social networking experiences for guests.
