Market Trends of north america foodservice Industry

Toronto takes the lead: 758 QSR stores make it the hub of quick service restaurants

  • Quick-service restaurant outlets are the most in number; they are expected to register a CAGR of 5.77% over the forecast period. The QSR chains in Canada have been growing despite changing consumer tastes and increasing internal competition. International demand and globalization opportunities allow large-scale operators to expand their footprint into new markets. Toronto is the city with the most QSR outlets in Canada, with 758 stores.
  • The expansion of the cloud kitchen market is being driven by the increase in demand for online meal delivery, a desire for international cuisine, and the adoption of tech-savvy ordering systems. Around 49.4% of Canadians have been ordering food online at least once a week after the pandemic. AI is being used to optimize kitchen operations and provide personalized recommendations to customers. Thus, cloud kitchen outlets are expected to register a CAGR of 6.25% over the forecast period.
  • FSR outlets are the third fastest-growing in the country, and they are expected to register a CAGR of 5.60% over the forecast period. Canada is a multicultural country, reflected in the international cuisines offered from coast to coast. The immigrant population is also younger than the aging non-immigrant population. In 2021, there were 8.3 million immigrants in Canada. Such factors influence long-term dining trends across the country. British, Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern, and Lebanese are among the most trending international cuisines in Canada. Therefore, the huge demand for international cuisine enables large-scale, full-service operators to expand their business across the country.

  • The demand for quick service restaurants is expected to increase due to changes in consumer behavior, people's busy schedules, and growing e-commerce channel penetration. Quick service restaurants are particularly popular with young people since they offer takeaway, home delivery, and many other services to enhance customer experiences and keep up with modernization. With the growing appetite for fast food among American consumers, the average order value for quick service restaurants increased by 16.23% over the study period. In 2022, popular fast food items, including burgers, pizzas, sausages, and meatballs, were priced at USD 8.75, USD 16, USD 8.5, and USD 9.8, respectively. The popularity of chicken in recent years has led American restaurant chains to expand their menu selections. In 2021, 21% of consumers increased their taste for chicken. Thus, many QSR and FSR restaurants include fried chicken in their menus. This consumer demand shift will force operators to compete for the most satisfying offering.
