FALLS CHURCH, Va. — The Foodservice Packaging Institute (FPI) has announced that it has published its "Market Research Study on Foodservice Packaging Products."
 
More than 75 percent of the 1,400 quick-service restaurant operators surveyed said they expect their foodservice packaging purchases to remain the same or increase in the next year. Only 2.4 percent of QSR operators said they expect their purchases to decrease.
  
The institute worked with The Qume Group Ltd. of Linden Hill, NY, on the study. Researchers conducted interviews from February through July of 2007, and covered QSR segments in pizza/Italian; sandwich/sub; coffee/snacks; ethnic (other than Italian); chicken; hamburger; and other.
 
Additionally, operators were asked a number of other foodservice-packaging related questions. The report also reveals:
  • Fifty percent of QSR business is take-out service, 25 percent is on-premise, 20 percent is drive through, and 6 percent is delivery service.
  • QSRs reported purchasing foodservice packaging products from an average of 1.15 distributors.
  • Sixty-eight percent of QSR operators report having a company name or logo on the cups they use; sixty-one percent report a name or logo on food containers; and 15 percent report a name or logo on laminated sheets.
  • Twelve percent of QSR operators report using distributor brand cups. Four percent of QSR operators report using distributor brand wraps in rolls.
