You have opportunities. You face threats. What you need are smart, quantifiable methods of distinguishing one from the other and maximizing your chances of success. Our Advanced Analytics for the foodservice industry are developed by a team of senior leaders with extensive experience helping clients predict areas of risk and growth to improve marketing and product development. We’ve been tracking every aspect of the foodservice industry for more than 40 years, from sizing gaps and opportunities, to assessing your market share, to determining what operators actually buy, and tracking consumer purchasing trends over time. We combine consumer information, industry expertise, and custom survey research with advanced research techniques and methodologies to explain the “why behind the buy.” Through modeling we offer insight into what will happen in the future, not just what has happened in the past.
