North America attracts a significant number of tourists interested in its diverse culinary landscape. Cities like New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Toronto are renowned for their culinary experiences, drawing food enthusiasts from across the globe. North America's diverse population has led to an increased demand for ethnic and fusion cuisines.

This includes wine pairings, craft beer pairings, and mixology-focused cocktail menus designed to complement and elevate the dining experience.

According to the report, the countries covered in this report include United States, Canada and Mexico. The United States is the largest market in North America, owing to consumer preferences of eating out most days of the week and the expansion of institutional catering in the country in recent years. The U.S. has emerged as the dominant market in the food service equipment industry, owing chiefly to the presence of well-established brands such as McDonald's, Burger King Corporation, KFC Corporation, and Starbucks Coffee Company among others. Moreover, government initiatives influencing the tourism sector and immigration in the country are projected to uplift the restaurant industry in the near future, which could work well for these appliances' deployment rates in the region. DoorDash will be a preferred and trusted partner in completing these orders in thousands of McDonald's restaurants in the U.S. and across the world as McDonald's increases the number of customers who can request delivery straight through the McDonald's app. For instance, in February 2021, Yum! Brands, Inc. and Beyond Meat Inc. entered into a strategic partnership to sell their plant-based chicken products in the U.S. Products such as Beyond Fried Chicken were made available to consumers across Taco Bell KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants for a limited time. In the United States, the number of consumers who prefer snacks has increased over the past decade. People are frequently compelled by their hectic lifestyles to skip meals and eat on-the-go food. In the US, however, there has been an increase in breakfast consumption of bakery products like doughnuts, bread, rolls, pies, and similar items. However, consumers have become more health-conscious and prefer healthy snacks, and the demand for premium food varieties, such as premium doughnuts, cakes, cookies, and pastries, is growing steadily. The most popular fast food chains in Mexico are McDonald's, KFC, and Burger King. Mexicans' preferred quick service restaurants are Burger King, McDonald's, Starbucks, Subway, KFC and Domino's Pizza. Due to plant-based meats work well in tacos and nachos with loads of flavours and spices, which make it difficult to tell plant-based meat from regular meat, quick service restaurant operators are starting to include them on their menus. At around 74,400 locations as of November 2021, the State of Mexico was home to the most restaurants. In the area, Middle Eastern food is expanding the quickest. With more than 500,000 members, Lebanese immigrants make up the largest group of foreigners to settle in Mexico. The most popular food delivery platforms in Mexico are Uber Eats, DiDi Food, Rappi. In 2021, Rappi was the most popular food delivery app in Mexico with nearly 8.5 million downloads. DiDi Food ranked second with approximately 8.2 million downloads, followed by Uber Eats with some 5.3 million downloads. Based on the sector, which includes commercial and non-commercial, among them in North America, commercial is leading the market. The commercial sector encompasses a broad range of establishments, including full-service restaurants, quick-service restaurants (QSRs), cafés, bars, and catering services. This diversity allows for a vast market presence, catering to various consumer preferences and dining occasions. Consumer spending habits heavily favor the commercial sector. North Americans frequently dine out or order from commercial establishments, contributing significantly to the sector's dominance. The desire for diverse dining experiences, convenience, and socializing often drives consumers toward commercial food service options. Commercial establishments are often conveniently located in high-traffic areas, making them easily accessible to a broad customer base. Their presence in urban, suburban, and even rural areas ensures their widespread reach, attracting diverse clientele. With the rise of delivery services, commercial establishments have capitalized on off-premises dining. They have actively partnered with delivery platforms, creating efficient systems to reach consumers who prefer dining at home, contributing to their market dominance.
