Revenue development of the restaurant industry in Germany 2008-2018 The German restaurant industry has been achieving growing revenues, generating 48.3 billion euros in 2018. This may be attributed to various factors, such as growing tourism rates in cities, increased travel frequency among the population, the expansion of catering and takeaway businesses in restaurants, as well as the sheer variety of restaurant cuisine to choose from. As of recently, there were over 71,780 restaurants in Germany.
McDonald’s and Burger King on the fast track

The leading restaurant companies in Germany ranked by sales are fast food giants McDonald’s and Burger King, followed by Lufthansa’s subsidiary catering company LSG, which focuses on in-flight catering . Germany also has its share of Michelin star restaurants. Among the German population, only one percent ate out daily, while 12 percent did so once a week.

Booming business

Regardless of the eating out frequency among Germans, the industry is expected to keep on growing and making money. Forecasts on revenues in the restaurant industry are looking positive for the 2020s, predicting over 45.1 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. The same can be said for event catering.
