Fast Food Sector Long-Term Prospects Changed Irrevocably, States Euromonitor in Its Comprehensive Report Available at MarketPublishers.com12 May 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – To date, fast food chains need to be ‘better’ in order to continue their existence. Consumers are requiring better food, experiences, corporate citizenship and, eventually, more value for their money.
The fast food sector long-term growth prospects have irrevocably changed.
Operators cannot be reliant on uninhibited growth in a few leading emerging markets, nor on consistent stable returns in key developed marketplaces. New players are emerging, novel channels are expanding and vying for the share in the fast food market, and customers themselves are changing their habits in ways that may not inevitably benefit leading chains. Operators are required to find novel ways to flourish within this market space, embracing a strategic balance of value and premium offerings to maximise appeal and sustain a competitive edge.
Quality is currently a key priority within the fast food sector. Consumers seek top-quality ingredients and preparation methods, and they want to see that operators are making arrangements for enhanced quality, even at the bottom price tiers. Consumers demand better food, but they wish better everything else, too: easier, faster, more convenient, more exciting and satisfying, all at value-driven prices.
