2018 Foodservice Facts

Originally Presented: Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Restaurants Canada's Senior Economist Chris Elliott and Ipsos Canada's VP of Marketing Asad Amin discuss what lies ahead for Canada's foodservice industry in 2018 and beyond, and how operators can adapt to changing consumer trends.

Some of the report highlights include:
  • Annual total foodservice sales are projected to reach $88.7 billion in 2018
  • Millennials are easily the key drivers of growth, with traffic up 9% (triple the size of any other cohort)
  • More than four in 10 Canadians base their decision on which restaurant to visit based on whether the restaurant offers free Wi-Fi access
Foodservice Facts 2018 is officially out and available to all RC members through the member portal.
