About the Sector

The food and beverage services sector primarily includes businesses whose main operation is to serve open and freshly made food and drink for individuals to enjoy right away. Sit-in restaurants, take-away food trucks, cafes, cafeterias and doughnut shops are all examples of businesses found in this sector.

Some establishments in this sector choose to serve alcoholic beverages in addition to food and other beverage options. The pubs, bars and nightclubs sector is closely related to restaurants, so we suggest taking a look at that sector profile as well.
