"As definitions of value evolve, operators need to renew their focus on exceeding expectations across all aspects of the value equation—food quality, price, service and atmosphere," explains Bret Yonke, manager of consumer insights at Technomic. "Moving forward, look for high-traffic, high-volume segments like fast food to further experiment with subscription models, such as $5 per month for a daily coffee, to drive value perceptions and visit frequency."
Compiling findings from 1,700 consumer responses, as well as trends, the comprehensive 2019 Value & Pricing Consumer Trend Report helps foodservice operators and suppliers better understand consumers' perceptions of value and pricing and identify opportunity areas.
