Independent Restaurants Gaining High Market Share

Increasing consumer awareness about food safety, health, and food adulteration, such as usage of illegal chemicals and low-quality ingredients in food preparation, has constrained the popularity of independent outlets among other foodservice channels. Independent outlets are gaining popularity for their affordable offerings of foreign cuisines, as compared to those in full service restaurants. Chained restaurants have adopted different marketing strategies, by claiming the use of ingredients from high-quality brands, coupled with certifications for their outlets from an authorized body in the country, in terms of safety and quality. Such strategies have led to an increase in the share of the chained outlets segment in the market studied.
