Full-Service Restaurants in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Full-Service Restaurants in Canada

The Full-Service Restaurants industry in Canada has exhibited strong growth over the five years to 2019. However, quick-service restaurants have outperformed full-service restaurants due to their more affordable prices and superior product development. Moreover, many operators have been put under pressure by rising food prices, which have negatively affected profit margins. The industry is highly fragmented due to the substantial number of small, independent single-location restaurants that operate in the market. The industry's stable revenue growth is expected to continue over the five years to 2024 as the Canadian economy continues to expand.

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.
