US Foodservice Snack Market Overview

The foodservice snacks industry is evolving to meet the diverse needs of consumers who are looking for convenience, variety, and affordability in their snacking choices. Operators are leveraging smaller portion sizes, innovative packaging, and strategic collaborations to attract and retain customers across different segments and dayparts.

Foodservice Snacking Trends

  • Smaller portion sizes are becoming more popular, as three out of five consumers agree that indulgent treats are an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Smaller portion sizes of core menu items allow consumers to “cheat” on their diet whilst not overindulging.
  • Convenience is a major factor in snacking choices, especially for Gen Z and Millennials. These demographics favor grab-and-go options and are more inclined to use delivery services as a convenient way to obtain snacks.
  • There is a growing interest in healthier snacking options at foodservice locations. Nearly half of consumers would be motivated to purchase snacks from foodservice locations if healthy options were available. This indicates a desire for snacks that can contribute positively to their health goals whilst maintaining convenience.
