Europe Fast-casual Dining Market: Dynamics

Over the years, fast-casual dining has evolved in terms of dining patterns. Factors such as cultural influence, the flexibility of fast casual dining, and increased technological innovations are driving the Europe fast-casual dining market. The advent of digital technology is changing the food industry significantly. It helps to customize orders, gather the customer’s data, and create lucrative rewards and discounts. Prominent vendors have integrated applications that allow customers to make the payment via debit and credit cards, Apple Pay, or PayPal. For instance, Firejacks offers Pay My Bill, which enables diners to pay their bills electronically via a compatible mobile device at the restaurant. Similarly, Chipotle has created a tech-enabled second make line – i.e., a second burrito assembly line where all online orders are assembled.

It helps to improve communication by enabling franchisors to monitor everything in real-time.

The Europe fast-casual dining market by channels can be segmented into on-premises and off-premises. The on-premise casual dining segment is developing and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period.

For instance, Paul Bocuse’s Ouest Express, Ferran Adria’s Fastfood, and Marcus Samuelsson’s Street Food in Western Europe are offering high-quality food and quick service together. These chef-driven concepts have rendered a level of creativity to independent fast casuals, thereby propelling the Europe fast-casual dining market.
