CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global market research company Euromonitor International and Nation’s Restaurant News released a new list focusing on the top 25 international foodservice operators of outside North America. This list and corresponding regional analysis is prominently featured in Nation’s Restaurant News latest issue.
Asia Pacific leads the way in foodservice sales with USD$1 trillion dollars, followed by North America with USD$544 billion and Western Europe at USD$535 billion respectively. However, Eastern Europe experienced the most fixed year-on-year growth in 2012-2013 with 10.8% sales growth, while Latin America also experienced strong growth with 9.7% expansion.
In Latin America, Brazilian chain Habib’s still leads the way in sales, reflecting the continuing importance of value-priced local brands and in Western Europe, UK-based Costa Coffee has expanded with an additional 25 markets in the region, increasing their rivalry with Starbucks.
According to Euromonitor’s Head of Consumer Foodservice, Michael Schaefer, “Utilizing our extensive global research helps us formulate the top 25 list and provides unique insights to not only what is going on in foodservice globally, but what is trending regionally. This in turn offers operators an opportunity to better understand their own markets, as well as markets they may wish to expand into in the future.”
