"Italy - The Future of Foodservice to 2020", published by GlobalData Consumer, provides extensive insight and analysis of Italy’s Foodservice market over the next five years (2015-2020) and acts as a vital point of reference for operators or suppliers.

Overall revenue in the Italian profit foodservice sector grew at a CAGR of 2.0% between 2013 and 2015. The largest channel by revenue in the sector is the coffee and tea shop channel with revenue in 2015 of over EUR40 billion. The Italian foodservice market is highly fragmented in channels other than QSR. Consumers are largely traditional and value Italian food above all other options. Most also prefer locally run outlets, this is especailly evident in the large and fragmented coffee and tea shop channel. Through Italy's recession, consumers became incresingly value focused in foodservice and the QSR channel experienced gains at the expense of FSR. There has also been a shift in focus towards "convenience dining" as consumers are forced to work longer hours. Key oppurtunities exist for operators to combine a greater level of convenience and value with the Italian love of localism.

- A weak economy has caused consumers to become increasingly value focused in their foodservice transcactions; there are slight rises in spending forecast as consumers fortunes improve however and consumers are still willing to spend in foodservice outlets.
- Coffee shops and traditional FSR are ingrained into Italian culture. Coffee shops in particular have high visit frequencies and are embedded into consumers routines. Multiple consumer groups are showing a demand for more options from the channel however, especially an improved food offering. FSR is seeing increased competition from an improved QSR channel but FSR operators should not be tempted to compete solely on price.
- Localism rules in Italy. QSR operators have previously been seen as an affront to Italian cusine but are now intorducing increasingly localized products to appeal to traditional consumers. Most consumers still associate the channel with convenience as opposed high quality food however.
