In an extremely fragmented channel, mainly represented by individual entrepreneurs, adaptation to COVID-19 restrictions was difficult, with a significant reduction in the number of consumers on the streets, and the cancellation of events and popular festivals, which led to significant current value decline in 2020. The one thing favouring street stalls/kiosks is that these outlets largely build their business model around takeaway, so were not as significantly impacted by the restrictions on eat-in sales.
The high rate of vaccination of the Portuguese population allowed for the gradual return of the street food segment during 2021, with concerts and shows returning mainly in late summer and early autumn. Street food had been boosting sales in the channel for several years, adding value by bringing new colours, flavours and food cultures to the streets of Portugal’s cities.
Portugal is a nation of coffee lovers, with coffee consumption part of the routine of the average consumer at several different times of the day. This is reflected in the popularity of coffee kiosks such as Quiosque Buondi, Sical Quiosques, Delta Quiosques, Nicola Quiosques and Quiosque Mundo do Café.
Street stalls/kiosks is expected to see another couple of years of dynamic current value growth in the early forecast period, returning to the 2019 level of sales, seen before the pandemic struck, as early as 2023. The property market remained strong in Portugal in 2021, maintaining inflated rents and property values, mainly in major metropolitan areas of Porto and Lisbon.
Mobility and sustainability are trends which are anticipated to continue to gain steam over the coming years, with street food set to see rapid growth. Street food is gaining relevance along with the development of smart cities.
Greater innovation, creativity and sophistication are set to characterise street food over the coming years. Trends seen in street food include the use of high-quality meat, healthy, vegetarian and vegan food, and world cuisines such as Hawaiian or Middle Eastern.

Small, sometimes mobile, foodservice providers characterised by a limited product offering and by low prices. Includes street stalls, street hawkers and foodservice kiosks where food is prepared in some way and served through a hatch or over a display counter to take away. Also includes kiosks and carts located externally or internally eg in shopping malls etc. As a rule, street stalls/kiosks outlets tend to be smaller than 100% home delivery/takeaway outlets, while menus are more limited, often (though certainly not always) with a greater emphasis on snack items, rather than full meals.See All of Our Definitions
