Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven by demographics, consumer tastes, and personal income. The profitability of individual companies depends on efficient operations and high volume sales. Large companies have advantages in purchasing, finance, and marketing. Small companies can compete effectively by offering high-quality menu items and providing superior customer service. The industry is fragmented: the top 50 companies account for about 45% of revenue.
Specialty eateries compete with establishments offering snacks and other food items such as grocery stores, convenience stores, retail bakeries, and delis. In addition, specialty eateries compete with traditional fast-food and full service restaurants.
