  • High disposable incomes of consumers and rise in tourist visits during the review peiord boosted the growth of the overall foodservice sector. FSR represents the largest foodservice channel in Hong Kong, generating revenue of HKD95.3 billion in 2019 (or a 64.2% share of the overall profit sector).
  • Third party delivery services have seen a slow rate of acceptance in Hong Kong, largely due to the proximity and density of outlets. However, the atmosphere of social unrest in 2019 and concerns regarding the COVID-19 infection, made individuals more reluctant to go out, creating better conditions for delivery service providers. Thereby, takeaway transactions in the channel are forecast to outperform dine-in occasions, especially in QSR and FSR.
  • Currently, the FSR channel is dominated by independent operators, where 83% of revenue was generated by independent outlets in 2019. While chains are best represented in the coffee & tea shop channel, wherein they accounted for 53% of the channels’ sales value in 2019 and Starbucks Corporation - the largest operator, generated 38.5% share of the total channel revenue.
