The Buffet Restaurants industry has performed poorly over the past five years, as rising health consciousness and changing consumer consumption patterns have reduced demand for buffet restaurants. In the coming years, the industry is expected to continue declining, albeit at a slower rate.
This industry comprises chain and franchised restaurants with buffet-style services where patrons pay, serve themselves and eat within the restaurant. These establishments may also sell alcoholic and other beverages. This industry does not include buffet-style food service contractors, which are included in IBISWorld reports 72231 and 72232.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
