High-End Experiences: A Look at the Fine Dining Landscape of the USA
Did you know Americans eat out an average of 4.5 times per week? Despite being so commonplace, an away-from-home dining experience can still offer the American consumer something unique, particularly when they visit one of the more than 5,100 Fine Dining restaurants in the United States.
By definition, fine dining establishments have a dinner emphasis and check averages are over $50. They are also known as “white tablecloth restaurants.” CHD Expert, the Chicago-based foodservice database and analytics firm, recently released data surrounding fine dining restaurant landscape in the US.
Fine dining restaurants make up 1.4% of the Full Service Restaurant landscape in the United States, and only account for 0.73% of the total restaurant landscape (FSR and LSR).
With regard to Fine Dining Menu Types, the segment tends to skew toward protein- or seafood-based restaurants and restaurants specializing in ethnic cuisine. For example, the Steak & Seafood menu type makes up 21% of the fine dining segment, while Family Steak / Chophouse accounts for 20% and American Traditional makes up 16%.
For foodservice suppliers of premium or gourmet products, the fine dining segment may represent numerous white space opportunities.
