Industry Overview (What We Do and Where We Fit)
While the pandemic negatively impacted some industries, the fast-casual sector made some adjustments and advancements to further drive growth potential. The industry continues to see colossal numbers: it’s estimated that the market will increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.6% to reach $209.1B by 2027 (the market was last valued at $125.6B in 2019).
One of the strongest growing segments of the fast-casual industry is the Mediterranean category. The Mediterranean restaurant industry in the U.S. was valued at $39B in 2021, and the category is expected to see continued growth to 2026.
As Mediterranean food becomes an increasingly popular option, fast-casual restaurant growth is being driven by several factors:
- The Mediterranean diet was named the best overall diet for the fifth year in a row, as this style of eating is a healthier alternative to other fast-casual options.
- Many Greek dishes are becoming more familiar, and recognized in nearly every household.
- Americans are continuing to shift to healthier eating habits, driving the demand for healthier fast food.
- Greek food is deliciously versatile and has the ability to satisfy virtually every palate.
- Mediterranean restaurants are moving from cities to suburban and rural areas.
