Convenience will continue to be one of the major driving factors of consumers’ purchasing decisions in Australia over the forecast period. To maintain an efficient and rapid service, limited-service restaurants in the US have already started trialling more advanced automation at select locations, which could expand to other markets.
While local consumers are increasingly returning to their favourite limited-service locations to drive up footfall, the importance of home delivery, especially through digital orders, is likely to retain some relevance in the coming years despite predictions for loss of share to eat-in. An increasing number of consumers are now comfortable placing online orders via delivery apps such as Uber Eats or Door Dash, with online orders set to continue to outpace growth recorded by offline.
Several limited-service chains have been experimenting with implementing plant-based items as part of their menus. However, there is room for significant improvement.

Limited-Service Restaurants (LSR) combine fast food and 100% home delivery/takeaway outlets. These outlets offer limited menus with items that can be prepared quickly. Customers typically order, pay, and pick up their order from a counter, though some outlets can have limited table service. This also includes 100% Home Delivery/Takeaway which provide no facilities for consumption on the premises. LSR tend to specialize in one or two main entrees such as hamburgers, pizza, or chicken, but they usually also provide drinks, salads, ice cream, dessert, etc. Food preparation is generally simple and involves one or two steps, allowing for kitchen staffs generally consisting of younger, unskilled workers rather than professional chefs. Other key characteristics include: • A standardised and restricted menu • Tight individual portion control on all ingredients and on the finished product • Individual packaging of each item • Counter service • For Chained Limited Service Restaurants, chained and franchised operations which operate under a uniform fascia and corporate identity • Any outlet offering full-service restaurant seating with servers would be excluded, even if delivery service is available.See All of Our Definitions
