Market Drivers and Restraints:

One of the main factors driving the US food service market is the increased digitization of food services, as consumers prefer to book earlier and make payments online. Fast food restaurants focused on organic products and healthy foods should be the target of the market in the future. In the United States of America, the call for organic food is expanding rapidly.

QSRs are increasingly popular in the United States and there are about 194,723 such QSRs in 2018. Fast food restaurants include limited service locations, coffee shops, fast food restaurants, drink bars, ice cream parlors, pizza delivery, takeout sandwich shops, and service workshops with baked donuts, cookies, and bagels on site. The contemplation of the ease of consumption of food in the QSR has led the American population to spend in these restaurants, which stimulates the country's food service market.
