As the number of Americans looking to reduce meat and dairy consumption increases, there’s growing market potential for plant-based quick-service restaurant (QSR) franchises. The global plant-based foods market is expected to see growth in the total value from $29.4B in 2020 to over $162B by 2030.
Driving the market are advances in food technology, consumer familiarity with plant-based products, and declines in product price, as well as an increased awareness of health and sustainability advantages.
With more than 56% of consumers increasing their consumption of plant-based foods, the growth in demand for plant-based products is driving the market by pushing producers to create more vegan options, often at a similar or lower price point to their animal-product counterparts. With plant-based menu items becoming less foreign to consumers, an increase in plant-based QSRs is sure to follow.
Major QSR Chains are Joining the Plant-Based Trend
Major QSR chains have already begun to introduce plant-based proteins to their menus in an effort to appeal to younger generations of consumers, who place greater value on products that align with their health and environmental initiatives.
However, these larger QSR chains can undercut consumers who avoid animal products altogether, creating concerns over cross-contamination with their regular menu items.
