The report includes an in-depth analysis of the Saudi Arabia Food Service Market, including market size and trends, product mix, distribution channels, and supplier analysis. The term "foodservice" describes the business and method of handling, preparing, and serving food and drinks outside of homes. It includes a broad variety of places and situations, such as eateries, cafeterias, hotels, catering services, and institutional food facilities, such as medical centers and educational institutions. Providing consumers with meals that are not only tasty and fulfilling but also healthy and safe is the main objective of the foodservice industry.

  • In March 2023, Fawaz Abdulaziz Al Hokair & Sons collaborated with Nathan & Nathan KSA. As a result of this agreement, both organizations' resources and skills will be combined, their active customer bases will grow faster, and future prospects to offer unmatched professional services to clients throughout the Kingdom will be supported.
  • In February 2023, 400 Starbucks locations around Saudi Arabia will receive freshly baked goods and packaged goods from a new production facility built by Alshaya Group. By the end of 2023, Alshaya Group, which runs over 1,000 Starbucks locations in the Middle East, intends to expand the website's distribution to over 500 Starbucks locations.
Saudi Arabia Food Service Market
Market Opportunities and Challenges

Opportunities: The country's growing demand for home delivery services as well as its rising takeout food consumption are responsible for the food service market's notable rise in Saudi Arabia. In addition, Saudi Arabia has seen a sharp increase in the quantity of food and retail malls in recent years. Over the past ten years, the practice of establishing food outlets in malls—previously restricted to the nation's largest cities—has extended to tier 2 and tier 3 cities. As a result, the market will grow more quickly as there are more restaurants and outdoor dining becomes more popular. Furthermore, The largest category is quick-service restaurants, which is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.08% in terms of value over the forecast period. The market is dominated by cuisines that use meat. The popularity of foreign cuisines, particularly meat-based meals from various cultures like Turkish kebabs, Indian curries, and American-style burgers, has also increased recently.

Challenges: The majority of customers have embraced the newest trend in the food service business, which is online meal ordering. Customers may be cautious to use this method due to a few drawbacks associated with online meal ordering, though. The fact that the quality of food delivered is frequently worse than that of restaurants is one of the issues with food delivery services.  Additionally, the food service industry is extremely competitive, with businesses ranging from upscale restaurants to street vendors. In order to stand out in a competitive market, businesses must continue to innovate, provide outstanding customer service, and engage in significant marketing initiatives, which may be challenging for both new and established players. Shifting Consumer Preferences: Consumers are searching more and more for food options that are good for their health, sustainable, and ethically sourced.

COVID-19 Impact on Saudi Arabia Food Service Market
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the food and beverage industry. Strict government measures, such as lockdown in Saudi Arabia, caused production facilities and distribution networks to close, severely impacting the foodservice industry. This trend is probably going to last till the end of 2020 since people would rather eat food made at home than go out. The food service sector will be severely threatened by this, and it will likely take some time for it to recover.
