Executive Summary

Jun 2019
PROSPECTS
Austerity is an important factor affecting the foodservice market

Since the start of the difficult economic situation in Saudi Arabia, consumers have become more careful with their budgets and they changed their spending priorities. With VAT being implemented in 2018, this led to prices increasing by 5% on most commodities, which made consumers even more careful with their expenditure.

Weekly promotions are a good strategy for restaurants to follow

As the difficult economic situation continues to be seen in Saudi Arabia, many restaurants are needing to find solutions and other strategies to help them survive in the marketplace. For example, Steak House, a chain of famous restaurants in Saudi Arabia, has a daily promotion so that every day it offers different promotions as well as offering children’s meals for free.

Saudization impacts the service in full-service restaurants

The percentage of Saudization is continually increasing, which is leading to the departure of a huge number of expats. In addition, the government is continually announcing new decisions and regulations, which impact all industries, including the food industry.
