    Big fat stats put the obesity debate back on the menu

    2020-07-29T06:35:00Z

    There are times everyone needs a juicy bacon cheeseburger, a big portion of chips, a three piece KFC, a pepperoni pizza, lots of chocolate, a few scoops of ice cream or some crisps. Not altogether obviously, that would be far too delicious. But individually, and as an occasional treat, where’s the harm? The trouble is the UK has long suffered from a lack of restraint. Couple that with our love of takeaways and a national diet rooted in stodgy classics and we have reached a point where the government estimates that 63% of adults in England are overweight or obese. It says one in three kids leaves primary school overweight or obese. Obesity related illness costs the NHS over £6bn every year. Those are big fat stats.

    Dominic Walsh: Rent, Landlords, and Wild Times at Dominos

    2020-05-15T07:29:00Z

    For years, Domino’s Pizza was a cash machine for all involved. Management notched up some serious bonuses and incentives by delivering the goods year after year, while long-standing shareholders such as Nigel Wray and Colin Halpern, who is also the group’s vice chairman, coined it as the share price rose inexorably. Also happy were the franchisees, many of whom went from pizza maker to millionaire entrepreneur in as long as long as it took to establish their new shop – not a lengthy process in those days.

    Steve Gotham: Lesson One in leveraging delivery – appraise the competition

    2020-05-01T07:12:00Z

    With the fast diminishing prospects of restaurants being able to re-open sooner rather than later, there is increasing importance on leveraging delivery as a business revenue stream. MCA’s Menu Tracker insights have recently been augmented with some delivery menu analysis. This has extended to 38 operators across four channels, comprising chain restaurants, fast food – traditional and contemporary, as well as the delivery specialists (the raft of pizza purveyors that include the likes of Domino’s, Papa Johns and Pizza Hut delivery).

    ​Steve Gotham: Contrasting coronavirus communications

    2020-04-03T07:51:00Z

    MCA’s Operator Data Index includes over 350 eating & drinking out chains with five outlets or more. We estimate these businesses generated a combined turnover of almost £27bn in 2019 – quite what this comparative will equate to in 2020 when the coronavirus dust eventually settles is a scary prospect. Many of these businesses have temporarily closed all operations, while a number are gallantly soldiering on with delivery or takeaway from selected locations only. Of those businesses still trading in some form, it is useful to review their online messages on how they are dealing with the coronavirus. Certainly, there are differences in how they are looking to both inform and reassure consumers.
