Food Franchise Industry Report 2014: Report Overview

Food Franchise Industry Report 2014

Food service spending is now where it was just before the recession hit. According to the Consumer Expenditure Midyear Update from Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for July 2012 to July 2013, the average American household spent the exact amount on away-of-home food as it did during 2008. Food service accounts for 5.2% of the expenditures in a year for a household in America on average.

Food franchises are without much argument the foundation of franchising. About 57% of franchise industry employees work in one of three areas: quick service restaurants (fast food), table/full service restaurants, or retail food.
