Key Market Trends

Increasing Tourism Boosting the Foodservice Market

Tourism, smaller households, an increasing number of women in the workforce, change in consumer patterns, a rise in the number of dine-in restaurants, and growing consumer preference for trying out other cuisines have led to the growth of the popularity of full-service restaurants. Tourism has become a trend these days for relaxation and family time. People are visiting locations in the same or different countries for leisure trips. For instance, according to the 2021 data from the Bank of Spain, 29.2 billion euros were spent by international tourists in Spain. As disposable incomes grow, foodservice trends are also expected to grow, presenting a great opportunity. Even in low-growth high-income regions, food service players could adapt and take advantage of an increasingly fluid and competitive environment. Hence, the demand for good food in an affordable, informal, and social environment is growing as consumers place the format secondary.

Increased Presence of Online Service Providing Growth Opportunities

The food service market in Spain expanded significantly in previous decades. Independent restaurants still dominate the market, accounting for over 90% of consumer foodservice value sales. New consumer habits, social networks' penetration into consumers' lifestyles, and new technologies have given players access to a bigger potential client base. According to the Ministry of Agriculture data from 2021, about 33.6% of people eat lunch, and 16.1% of people eat dinner outside their homes in Spain. Online food delivery apps are driving the food service market due to their convenience and quick delivery services. Pizza Hut, Golvo, Telepizza, Uber Eats, and IL Patio are some of the major restaurants operating in the Spain foodservice market.

Competitive Landscape

Spain's food service market is competitive and fragmented. Full-service restaurants hold a major share.

One of the main features of 100% home delivery or takeaway in Spain, which remained unchanged in the review period, is the strong leadership by chained outlets. Some major players in the Spanish foodservice market include McDonald's Corp, TelePizza SA, Zena Group, Comess Group SL, Vips Group, and Burger King Worldwide Inc.
