Alternative Channels

Technomic's 2017 Alternative Channels Study uncovers the size and growth of the primary "other" foodservice channels, ranging from standalone casinos to airports and movie theaters. While consumer spending for many of these alternative channel segments is episodic, Technomic’s research has found that they are critical drivers of volume for a number of food and beverage product categories.

Use this study to:

  • View the current and forecasted size of each channel to determine which are the largest opportunity for your company
  • Understand how you can support critical strategic issues facing operators in each primary alternative channel
  • Explore how consumer, menu and technology trends may affect your strategy within each channel
