ezCater®, the world’s largest online catering marketplace, today published The Catering Opportunity: Understanding a $60+ Billion Market, a comprehensive report on the U.S. catering market with in-depth data and insights to help restaurants develop successful catering strategies.
The report combines insights from a new survey conducted in partnership with Technomic, a leading foodservice industry research firm, with data from millions of orders placed on the ezCater Marketplace. Technomic surveyed more than 450 foodservice leaders representing 45,000 restaurant locations on their attitudes about, experience with and investment plans for catering.
Key findings include:
“Catering is different,” said David Meiselman, Chief Marketing Officer at ezCater. “It’s huge, it’s driving significant incremental profit and it’s growing fast. Our goal for this report was to shine a light on what sets catering apart, what business catering customers want and which catering investments are being made by the brands that are growing the fastest in the market. We’re excited to provide restaurant operators with critical insights to help build and grow profitable catering businesses.”
The report was previewed at CaterUp!, ezCater’s inaugural catering conference where over 300 restaurant operators learned actionable strategies for growing their catering business from 30 industry all-stars. CaterUp! 2020 will take place in San Diego next April. More details will be released later this year.
