China Fast Food Research Report - May 2014

Reflected by the anti-corruption policy, domestic fast food restaurants have decisively outperformed full-service restaurants, indicating a confident outlook for the sector’s growth in China.

This has also given multinational foreign players an unfavourable status due to them being perceived as unhealthy and unable to provide menu customisations. Marketing communication tools are the key shapers in driving healthy eating within Chinese society. Three critical elements – access to convenient nutritional information, affordable ‘green’ menus and consumer empowerment must seamlessly merge to revolutionise the current Chinese fast food industry.
