There’s no doubt about it: quick-service restaurants (QSRs) are a major part of the foodservice machine in the U.S. Whether you’re a student, full-time worker or stay-at-home parent, QSRs offer a lot in terms of convenience, taste and price – and Americans across the board seem to think so, as well.
One thing is certain — we can count on a new round of issues in 2019 that will impact our business and create challenges with many underlying opportunities. NAFEM’s role thru the volatility, beyond what will be “the best NAFEM show ever” in February, is to continue to help gather, support and advocate with the information we provide to you, so that you and your leadership team better understand the important issues affecting your business. Hopefully, each year, we grow in our ability to provide these services to you.
