Overview : The COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly harsh on the F & B ( Restaurants & Online Ordering/Delivery) segment.
What makes this sector particularly vulnerable is that it is traditionally “high touch” in nature. It involves a complex set of Supply Chain, In-house Service and close quarter Consumer Interaction dynamics that have -so far- demanded human proximity, thereby increasing the chance of transmission and proliferation of the pandemic. Global Measures such as lockdowns and social distancing have greatly impacted this sector.
The Opportunity : In this scenario, the emergence of Cloud Kitchens has proven to be a saviour. Cloud Kitchens are growing exponentially. The Global Cloud kitchen market size was valued at $43.1 billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach $71.4 billion by 2027 with a CAGR of 12.0% from 2021 to 2027*. This is due to the following factors :
On-demand food delivery is becoming a key trend in the food and beverages industry. Cloud kitchens represent a crucial element of this process, as large numerous operators adapt their businesses to a rising trend of online food delivery demand
Low contact for greater safety :
Hygienic meals that are prepared and delivered in a “low- touch/no-touch” model are becoming an essential part of our lives
Holistic F & B Tech : Using an all-in-one Technology approach to ensure operational stability will be a major focus. This demands that more F & B players (restaurants & supply chains) move to the Cloud, which will also result in boosting the growth of the cloud kitchen market.
Workflow Automation : Experts opine that post-pandemic, 85 percent of all customer interactions will be handled without a human agent. Every touchpoint throughout the supply chain and especially the consumer purchase and consumption experience will have to be seamlessly integrated and automated
e-Commerce/m-Commerce and No-Touch Payment Options growth : As much as 55% of e- commerce purchases will be made with payment alternatives that do not involve debit/credit cards. The Business owners who give their customers more ways to “no-touch” pay, will be most likely to sustain operations
Shipping and Logistics will emerge as key areas : A growing number of Consumers want goods at their doorstep, even perishable items. This has put a strain on supply chains, which will need to strategically bolstered and augmented
