When it comes to handheld meals,
burgers continue to be king. One
out of every $4 spent within the food
service channel in 2016 was spent on
a handheld item, whether that was a
sandwich, wrap, burrito or burger. Of
the total $205.36 billion in food service sandwich sales in 2016, $90.57
billion were spent on burgers, according to global market intelligence
firm Technomic, Inc.
"Burgers remain as popular as
ever," said Dave Henkes, senior
principal of Technomic's Advisory
Group. "They are remarkably
adaptable and often serve as the
basis for flavor innovation in sauces,

toppings and even proteins."
Fast-food establishments and fullservice restaurants continue to add
new burger options to their menus in
an effort to keep pace with consumer
demand and changing tastes.
Of total burger sales, 57% were
sold in limited-service (or quick-service) restaurants, and 19% were sold
in full-service restaurants. Over 40%
of burger sales occur in segments
other than fast-food, including travel
and leisure, bars and taverns, education, retail and healthcare. Technomic
predicts 3.4% growth in the burger
category between 2017 and 2019.
"As the industry shifts toward

greater usage of takeout and delivery,
burgers are well-positioned to capitalize," Mr. Henkes said. "Very few
handheld items travel as well as burgers, and they should benefit from the
increased emphasis on off-premise
consumption."
"The things we're watching in the
burger category (and with burger
operators) right now include transparency, antibiotic-free meats, cage-free
eggs and improved conditions for
animals," Mr. Henkes added. "We
certainly believe sourcing antibioticand hormone-free beef will become a
long-term initiative for many operators
serving burgers."
