"Fast Casual" is changing the way we eat. Fast casual restaurants straddle the line between traditional, counter-service fast food and casual dining establishments with table service. They have many elements that make fast food appealing, such as immediate service, take-out or eat-in options and low prices, but fast casual restaurants have features that set them apart. The key trend at fast casual restaurants is transparency in ingredients, a desire to be more socially responsible and a commitment to source local food whenever possible. The fast casual industry has enjoyed explosive growth over the past several years, projected to reach $52 billion in 2017, according to Technnomic.
Healthy fast casual is a segment that accounts for over $384 million in sales, and there is growing interest in trendy health-based diets, from veganism to the Paleo diet. "Younger consumers eat out a lot, and they don't want to feel bad about their choices every day," said Kelly Weikel, senior consumer research manager at Technomic Inc., a food industry consulting firm. "Eating healthy is also appealing for boomers. When they eat out, they go for a little bit healthier because they are trying to preserve their vitality." The Rush Bowls acai franchise sits neatly in this segment, and offers you the opportunity to enter this market with an appealing brand identity and a delicious product.
