"South Korea - The Future of Foodservice to 2023", published by GlobalData provides extensive insight and analysis of the Romanian Foodservice market over the next five years (2016-2021) and acts as a vital point of reference for operators or suppliers.

South Korean foodservice profit sector grew at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2016 and 2018 and is set to accelerate slightly to 3.6% over the next five years. Growth in all channels between 2016 and 2018 was driven to a greater extent by growth in transaction numbers than growth in outlet numbers. The OSR channel has a high penetration of chain operators when compared to other restaurant channels. Both locally grown and international operators have significant shares in the QSR channel. Moreover, eating out at FSR for family and social gathering is a norm for the majority of South Koreans. Younger consumers tend to eat at FSR for socializing with friends, whilst older consumers do so for family outings. Group dining yields higher transaction values maintaining revenue growth in the channel.

• Growth can be characterized by a general increase in the country’s economic performance, in the year 2018, which has led to increase in consumer spending for dining out of the South Koreans. Furthermore, demand for convenience by the rapidly growing busier Koreans and the changing lifestyles compelled by increasing workforce and little time to cook food at home along with a rising tendency to eat out more have contributed well to the foodservice’s profit sector growth in recent years.
• Digital shopping has encouraged consumers to shop smarter, and now this is expected everywhere they visit. McDonald's South Korea has led the market by introducing digital ordering systems to reduce waiting times and streamline consumers visits to outlets.
