Growing Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) Franchises

India has observed a significant growth in Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) in the past 10-15 years. The concept of quick serving restaurants has been successful in the country due to shorter lead time and quicker food consumption alternatives for the consumers. Foodservice players such as McDonald's, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Domino's, KFC, Subway, Wendy's, and TacoBell are few famous quick service restaurants widely present in almost every city of the country. Therefore, quick service restaurants are contributing to the foodservice market in India significantly.

Competitive Landscape

India foodservice market is largely dominated by the players in the unorganized sector. The organized sector restaurants are present only in the tier-1 and tier-2 cities in India and could not cater to the demand of other cities. The organized sector is gaining a high market share during the forecast period due to rapid urbanization and expansion of these existing players as chained restaurants. The top international foodservice companies are strongly engaged in the innovation of their service as they are strategizing their food menu as per Indian cuisine.
