The Fast Casual segment has grown 6% annually over the last five years, and it’s no secret that industry forecasts predict the Fast Casual model will be the only growing segment in the restaurant industry in 2020. This can mean great things for your specific growth plans and general profitability, but it doesn’t come without growing pains. The reality is that those growing pains can turn into missteps, and missteps can result in loss of business and a damaged brand.
Fast Casual restaurants looking to grow and stay relevant in 2020 need to prepare for challenges related to:
- Large, casual dining chains entering the Fast Casual market
- Increasing importance of Food Safety Culture
- Continued and rising customer demand for fresh produce and fresh-prepared foods
- Customer demand for responsible sourcing and food transparency
During this webinar “Fast Casual: Trends, Challenges & Best Practices for Compliance Managers,” industry experts Walt Murray and Dean Wilste will discuss in detail four Fast Casual trends, related challenges, and actionable best practices to address those challenges in 2020.
A Q&A with the speakers will follow the presentation.
