Full-Service Restaurants in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Full-Service Restaurants in Canada

The Full-Service Restaurants industry in Canada exhibited slow yet consistent growth during the past decade, a trend that is expected to persist over the five years to 2017. Industry growth has been subdued as consumers seek more for their money when spending at restaurants. Along with slow revenue growth, operators have been put under pressure by rising food prices, which has negatively impacted profit margins. The industry is highly fragmented due to the large number of small, independent single-location restaurants in operation. Industry growth is expected to remain steady, though somewhat hampered, over the next five years as the Canadian economy experiences less consistent growth and consumer confidence remains subdued as a result of high household debt.

This industry includes restaurants that provide food services to patrons who order and are served while seated (i.e. waiter or waitress service) and pay after eating. These establishments may provide this type of food service to patrons in combination with selling alcoholic and other beverages.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
