Bakeries turn the heat up

Research firm The NPD Group says data from its new Bakery Trends Tracker report shows bakery outlets have over the past year (YE April 2019) seen the strongest growth in on-premise business among major British quick-service restaurant (QSR) channels, with sales and visits up more than 19% and nearly 18% respectively in the past year.

For those catering equipment firms with bakery-related appliances within their portfolio, this growth could herald a further uptick in fortunes.

The NPD Group says Britain’s bakery chains and independents are now in a strong position to increase their off-premise business and challenge the well-known sandwich retailers, supermarkets and quick-service restaurants for a larger share of the food-to-go, click and collect as well as delivery channels.
