Corporate Foodservice Trends in the U.S.

122 Pages Packaged Facts March 01, 2011 SKU: LA2848311

Packaged Facts forecasts that corporate foodservice sales will drop more than 6% during 2011-12, driven primarily by continued high unemployment, restaurant encroachment into the corporate catering space, company site size trends, and remote working arrangements, as detailed in Trends in U.S. Corporate Foodservice (March 2011).

However, we believe significant untapped opportunity exists in building greater synergy between corporate foodservice and wellness programs; and in meeting employees’ foodservice needs by profession and occupation in concert with demographics such as gender, generation and race/ethnicity. The bottom line is that demonstrating return on investment—in the form of increased employee productivity and reduced health care costs—is more important than ever.

But growing employee foodservice participation also means providing menu options competitive with those found at the restaurants drawing employees from their workplaces, as well as promoting the price advantages many corporate foodservice programs have over quick service, family/midscale and casual restaurants. As importantly, it means tailoring each corporate foodservice program according to its respective degree of restaurant proximity and density.

Trends in U.S. Corporate Foodservice provides the insight corporate foodservice participants need to understand these challenges and opportunities and frame their strategies accordingly. Key coverage includes:
