Future of FSR

Despite some struggles in the full-service segment, momentum is shifting in a positive direction as operators place emphasis on value, off-premise sales, adult beverages and memorable away-from-home experiences. Efforts will shift toward cultivating sustainable, long-term growth strategies and away from weak value propositions, an oversupply of restaurants and other issues that led to casual dining’s downturn.
