Coffee and snack shops - additional information
Coffee and snacks shops in the United States are generally included in the limited-service restaurant category and include coffeehouses, donut shops, ice cream shops and bagel shops, among others. Many coffee shops, which comprised the largest share of the industry at 42 percent, also offer a range of snacks, such as sandwiches, salads and baked goods. Coffee and snack shops usually offer both dine-in and takeout services. Food and drinks sales of U.S. snack and non-alcoholic beverage bars were expected to reach nearly 33 billion U.S. dollars in 2015.
Snack and beverage bar favorites of U.S. consumers include Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Tropical Smoothie Café and Caribou Coffee. Also among the most popular is Starbucks. Starbucks is the largest coffee chain worldwide, with revenues of 16.45 billion U.S. dollars in 2014. Despite its growing food menu, more than half of the chain’s revenue is still generated by beverage sales. Starbucks’ beverage offerings range from hot and iced coffees and teas to hot chocolates and real fruit smoothies.
In the United States, consumers spend around 21 dollars on coffee per week. That said, the vast majority of coffee is consumed at home.
