Catering Services Category Intelligence

The catering services market boasts of a mature European and North American market and a fast-growing APAC market. However, the COVID pandemic resulted in businesses being closed, events being postponed, and eateries being shut down. As such, the catering/cafeteria services were negatively impacted. One of the saving graces for the industry was the resurgence of take-away meals, which resulted in the contractual employment of employees from the cafeteria service providers.

With the pandemic loosening up, various countries have resumed operations with certain rules and regulations to maintain COVID safety protocols. For instance, pubs and restaurants in Ireland have opened for indoor service. In France, people visiting eateries have to show proof that they are vaccinated or have tested COVID negative recently. In India, ceremonies and gatherings can help with a limitation on the number of attendees decided by the local authorities. Such steps are opening business opportunities for catering service providers globally.
