The convenience of ordering food through online portals and availing customization in nutritional value, taste, quality, and health planning. etc., at ease, coupled with ordering popular food items across different locations & getting quick deliveries, i.e., is portraying an escalating demand for online food services in Kuwait.

Possible Restraint: Fluctuations in Food Commodity Prices

Catering services are driven highly by price competition & taste value. Hence, any fluctuation in the food commodity might threaten the growth of the Kuwait Catering Services Market during 2023-28. Moreover, the high cost of labor required for maintaining food quality & hygiene is another critical aspect that might hinder the overall market expansion in the coming years.

Growth Opportunity: Themed Restaurants and Fine-Dining Eateries On Campus with Customization Options

The catering industry in Kuwait is experiencing growth due to companies using it as an incentive to attract and retain talented employees. Rather than just providing meals, more companies are offering customized menus and subsidized rates for dining experiences as an additional employee benefit. This approach enhances employee satisfaction and morale, encouraging them to eat together and build a sense of belonging to the company. As a result, we can expect to see more themed restaurants and fine-dining options on corporate campuses.
