Convenience Store Foodservice - US - March 2018
Total c-store (convenience store) foodservice sales reached an estimated $38 billion in 2017; while foodservice sales will grow, Mintel forecasts growth will occur at a slower rate relative to previous years. C-stores tend to have a loyal consumer base that drives most foodservice purchases. Though these consumers are important, operators need to focus on converting more general customers to foodservice customers. Operators may be able to attract new customers and build check size among existing customers by developing new foodservice concepts.
This report looks at the following areas:
- Consumers choose c-stores based on convenience and gas prices
- QSRs (quick-service restaurants) outperform c-stores in most metrics
- C-store food has improved, but still has room for growth
