Do you know your foodservice occasions? Through the Consumer Planning Program (CPP), IFMA and Datassential have defined the 28 occasions that motivate consumer choice away-from-home; these occasions are the "why" behind the "what".

Occasions impact both where people choose to eat and what they order - and offer superior granularity to demography and traditional consumer metrics. Use these occasions to develop targeted strategies and in your collaborations with key operator customers.

Occasion Snapshot of the Week:

Commuters returning from work or school will often grab Dinner on the Way Home, an occasion that generates roughly $27 billion each year. 

Relative to other away-from-home occasions, attributes that consumers are particularly likely to seek for a Dinner on the Way Home include food that's made to order, piping hot, Classic American food, and food that's fun to eat.
