New Market Research Report: Fast Food in Mexico

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Oct 13 2014

Mexican consumers are increasingly interested in Asian and Middle Eastern food and are showing growing interest in a wide range of cuisines including Japanese, Chinese and Lebanese cuisine. Players thus focused on launching fast food menus with dishes from these cuisines that are not unknown to Mexican consumers but that are rarely found in fast food. For example, Delíbano (named after a mix of the Spanish word for Lebanon and the word "deli") was launched at the end of the review period. This brand offers traditional Middle Eastern cuisine but with all the benefits of fast food such as like convenience, speed of serving and affordable prices, while also benefiting from its "healthy, fresh and gourmet" slogan. Sukiya Gyudon (Zensho Co. Ltd) also entered towards the end of the review period. This chain benefits from offering gyudon dishes, which are rarely offered in Mexican consumer foodservice, while also benefiting from the established popularity of Japanese cuisine among Mexicans. This chain is also expected to attract many consumers who were previously reluctant to try Japanese cuisine due to a reluctance to eat raw fish or sushi. With widening options, Mexican consumers are increasingly attracted to Middle Eastern and Asian fast food, particularly as fast food has become mainstream in the country's culture.
