Ireland – The Future of Foodservice to 2020

Summary

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Irish economy suffered a considerable fall, with unemployment reaching its peak rate of 17.6% in 2011. The country’s EUR€85 Billion bailout, set up by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB) in 2010, and the Irish Government’s program of austerity also resulted in record-high emigration numbers, especially among young people.

Despite rising financial confidence among Irish consumers, Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) operators’ proposition of affordable and convenient food continues to resonate with cautiously optimistic customers, who would prefer to spend their higher disposable incomes on more frequent dining outings than in higher cost channels. Quick Service Restaurants (QSR) channel is the largest profit sector foodservice channel in Ireland.

Saturated and heavily fragmented pub, club and bar channel is the largest profit sector channel in terms of outlet numbers and therefore suffered disproportionately from the post-2008 financial crisis recession years. High unemployment rates and low financial confidence, especially in hard hit rural regions, drove budget tight customers to cut discretionary spending in their local pubs, instead opting to consume alcohol at home at a much lower cost.

Full Service Restaurants (FSR) channel will continue to enjoy steady, moderate value growth over the next five years, driven primarily by rising average transaction values, as cautiously optimistic consumers increasingly complement their meals with alcoholic beverages. Outlet growth is forecast to remain static, with outlet numbers set to rise at a weak CAGR of 0.3% to 2020.

Full Service Restaurants (FSR) channel in Ireland, in contrast to its UK counter-part, is heavily fragmented, with the top chain operators only generating a 5.5% share of the channel’s total sales value in 2015 (compared with 30.0% in the UK). Ireland’s strong economic recovery and high tourism numbers are making the Irish restaurant scene more attractive to outside investors, encouraging both international and domestic chains to further expand their networks in coming years, especially in Dublin.

Scope

– Irish consumers’ strong preference and demand for transparent sourcing practices and local products is central to major chain operators’ strategies in all key channels. However, this increasingly widespread availability of affordable, high quality and locally sourced fresh products across the foodservice market will force operators to show more creativity and innovation in menus to thrive in a crowded market.
– Ireland’s strong economic recovery and high tourism numbers are making the Irish restaurant scene more attractive to outside investors, encouraging both international and domestic chains to further expand their networks in coming years, especially in Dublin.
– The saturated and heavily fragmented pub, club and bar channel is the largest profit sector channel in terms of outlet numbers and suffered disproportionately from the post-2008 financial crisis recession years. The road to recovery will increasingly require operators in the channel to shift focus towards the ‘gastro-pub’, offering an enhanced food menu, as well as ‘craft’ and ‘artisan’ options.
