“The recreation segment continues to evolve from a sector with very limited foodservice opportunities to one in which foodservice plays a vital role in attracting and retaining customers,” says Technomic Director Mary Chapman. “In many cases, their core business—from slot machines to museum exhibits—has been suffering, and restaurants are a key way to help build bottom lines. This creates a lot of opportunity for smart foodservice operators, contract management companies and food manufacturers.”
CHICAGO, Oct. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — It is rare for a 2.6 percent decrease in sales to be considered good news, but in the case of the recreation foodservice segment, last year’s decrease was actually a big improvement over the prior year’s nominal decline of 10 percent. The industry, hit hard by the recession’s lingering effects, has continued to struggle as discretionary spending remains down from pre-recession levels. The recreation segment had retail-sales-equivalent food and non-alcoholic beverage revenues of $15.8 billion dollars in 2010. One way the industry is seeking to restore profitability is by expanding and tailoring foodservice offerings to attract those customers venturing out and seeking the most bang for their buck. To help companies understand where opportunities lie in the recreation industry, Technomic has developed the Recreation Foodservice Report.
Technomic’s Recreation Foodservice Report provides an in-depth understanding of recreation foodservice’s major components: casinos, cruise lines, theme/amusement parks, stadiums and arenas, sports clubs, movie theaters, bowling centers, museums, zoos and race tracks. For each of these categories, major players are identified and the present and future role of foodservice is analyzed.
Technomic provides clients with the facts, insights and consulting support they need to enhance their business strategies, decisions and results. Its services include numerous publications and digital products, as well as proprietary studies and ongoing research on all aspects of the food industry.
