The large number of vaccinated people in the population encouraged the reopening of the Israeli market in 2021, with many consumers returning to spending time in cafés and bars. After a long period of home seclusion, many people felt the need to get out of their homes.
While the entire cafés/bars channel struggled to cope with the realities of the COVID-19 situation, it was clear that independent outlets faced greater challenges than those operating under chains. The most obvious reason for the greater difficulties faced by independent players is that they have less ability to withstand economic shocks due to their more limited financial resources.
The marked fall in international travel during the COVID-19 crisis deprived cafés/bars of sales to tourists. However, it did mean that many Israeli consumers stayed in the country during the summer vacations and holidays.
Price rises are set to be a key feature of the consumer foodservice market across channels during the early part of the forecast period. This will be driven by the increasing cost of raw materials and the growing cost of shipping to Israel, underpinned by rising fuel prices.
Traditionally, one of the biggest strengths of cafés/bars in Israel has been that these outlets are often seen as much as entertainment and leisure venues as they are as places to obtain food and beverages. Indeed, cafés, bars and pubs have long been amongst the most popular types of entertainment venues in Israel, with the most famous and most popular establishments in the channel often seen primarily as places for family gatherings and socialising with friends and family.
With the “new normal” potentially presenting an existential threat to Israel’s café and bar culture, as detailed above, many of the players operating in the channel are likely to seek to make major changes to their operations in order to adapt to the new trading environment, remain relevant and avoid facing significant losses. Amongst the most important changes likely to be seen are the introduction of new products and services and alterations to outlet formats.
