Covered in this report
This report examines consumer attitudes and dining behavior, market, menu, and culinary trends in sandwich, sub, and wrap shops in the LSR (limited-service restaurant) segment. LSRs include both QSRs (quick-service restaurants), or fast food, and fast casual restaurants, and only LSRs are covered in this Report. However, due to the cross-segment nature of sandwiches, many of the insights regarding LSR sandwiches are also applicable to FSRs (full-service restaurants).
This report focuses on both sandwich-specific chains (eg Subway, Arby’s, Quiznos) as well as bakery café restaurants (eg Panera Bread) due to that bakery café restaurants often feature a large sandwich menu.
Key points covered
- Crowded landscape is getting ever more competitive
- Dining out less and other factors undercut sandwich shop purchases
- Buying sandwiches widely considered indulgent, and meats too processed
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Amanda Topper, a leading analyst in the Food and Drink sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The sandwich, sub, and wrap market has continued to engage consumers with premium, innovative, and tasty fare. Many fast casual sandwich stores and fast food chains are expanding units and growing sales. However, the category is crowded, with grocery stores, convenience stores, and coffee shops creating a complex, competitive landscape. Sustained growth will hinge on meeting consumers’ quest for value, taste, and freshness. This will need to be balanced with expectations for the choice, speed, and convenience prized by diverse, tech-savvy iGen and Millennial consumers.
