Need a report that reflects how COVID-19 has impacted this market and its growth?
The Canadian foodservice market is expected to register a CAGR of 4.55% during the forecast period (2021 - 2026).
There has been a definite impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the overall foodservice business, with various segments being affected in varying degrees in Canada. Foodservice operators and caterers are on the front line of rising inflation.
In-restaurant dining is the worst-hit segment, largely due to the travel curbs and a general avoidance of people getting into a larger gathering.
Large chained limited-service restaurants performed slightly better than other channels because they already had the infrastructure to accommodate delivery and online order platforms during the pandemic.
The Canadian foodservice market is primarily driven by the increasing frequency of dining out and time-pressed schedules. For instance, according to the General Social Survey, about 54% of Canadians eat out once a week or more, due to the convenience and socializing factor. According to the USDA, the United States dominated the Canadian market for imported prepared food products with 86% of the total market.
Full-service restaurants are growing with high growth rates. Quick-service restaurants or full-service restaurants hold a prominent share in the overall foodservice business in Canada. The Canadian foodservice business is constantly growing due to Canada’s economy, which is operating at full capacity.
