Competitive Landscape

Flunch (Agapes Restauration) continued to be the most important self-service cafeteria in France in 2013. With 171 owned stores and 70 franchises, this player led chained self-service cafeterias in terms of outlets, transactions and value sales in 2013. Its overall value share in GBO terms reached 34% in 2013. Despite declining value sales and transactions in 2013, the company was able to sustain its position due to its strong branding, outlet renovation and low price strategy. In January 2013, for example, the chain launched ?iD qu?on aime?, which is a range of eight different recipes which are available at ?4.95 from Monday to Saturday at lunchtime.

Industry Prospects

Self-service cafeterias is expected to continue to see a value sales decline over the forecast period at constant 2013 prices. The important investment necessary to open new outlets, coupled with clients? disaffection will continue to push down value sales. Trade sources still believe that a future rebound is possible if there is a strong economic recovery, and also if the main chained operators are able to modernise their concepts and adapt to the new needs of French consumers when it comes to eating out. These players need to overcome a major challenge, which is to offer quality foodservice at competitive prices, and quickly, in a modern and pleasant environment.
