The UK fast-food, takeaway and home-delivery market (excluding coffee shops) reached a value of £10.13bn in 2009, an increase of 4.3% compared with 2008. If coffee shops are included, the value of the market climbed £12.71bn in 2009 — a growth of 4.7% since 2008. ( )

This report analyses the following sectors of the market: sandwiches, burgers, pizza, fish and chips, chicken, other fast-food/takeaway outlets, and coffee shops. Sandwiches are the largest sector of the market by value, while the other fast-food and takeaway sector, covering a broad range of outlets including ethnic restaurants, was amongst the fastest growing between 2005 and 2009.

The fast-food, takeaway and home-delivery market appears to have weathered the economic downturn in the UK reasonably well. The low prices charged for many fast-food products has helped to sustain consumer interest and market growth; the new store opening programmes of the major chains, continuing during the recession, have boosted the overall growth rate of the sector at a time when like-for-like outlet sales growth has been slower.

Despite the recession, many of the leading fast-food chains continued to increase the number of outlets they operated in the UK in 2009; companies expanding in this way included Subway, Domino’s Pizza, EAT, Greggs, Subway and Costa. Further new stores are also being opened in 2010 and planned in the longer term.

KFC intends to open 200 to 300 new stores in the UK by 2013 and McDonald’s intends to target 30 new restaurant openings per year from 2010.

It forecasts that the value of the UK fast-food, takeaway and home-delivery market will show steady, if not particularly spectacular levels of growth between 2010 and 2014. Although the economic climate in 2010 will remain difficult, the attraction of fast-food, including low prices and ongoing increases in the numbers of outlets operated by the major chains, should help to sustain overall growth.
