Food services industry

The food services industry has grown considerably since the start of this millennium. According to the National Restaurant Association, the growth has occurred in both commercial and non-commercial operations due to a variety of factors, including: the increased availability of ethnic cuisines and healthy food items; the expanding use of technology to improve delivery and ordering systems; and a heightened consumer acceptance that dining out is an essential part of one’s lifestyle. In an industry that is continually evolving and subject to changes in consumer trends, unforeseen events can occur – such as business interruptions, business disputes, product liability, product recall, fraud and fidelity issues – that precipitate the need to determine economic losses.
