Sino US benchmarking , Where is the Chinese McDonald's road ？
20 century 70-80 The S is the initial stage of China's catering industry . 1979 year , In the early days of reform and opening up , To solve the problem “ It's hard to eat ” problem , Small and medium-sized restaurants dominated by self-employed businesses have emerged one after another and are gradually accepted by a small number of consumers , Restaurants in this period offered preferential prices 、 Flexible, convenient and affordable services are the main features . With the development of the economy , Consumers' catering demand has gradually increased ,20 century 90 In the s, the capital invested in catering increased significantly , There has been a surge in catering outlets and industry employees , The number of catering enterprises has expanded rapidly .
At this stage, the international brand KFC 、 McDonald's and other international catering brands are pouring into China , Played a certain “ Catfish effect ”, Forced domestic catering enterprises to improve product quality 、 Brand promotion, supply chain and other multi angle continuous improvement 、 Enhance competitiveness , In the mid-1990s, the rudiment of China's chain operation appeared . 21 Since the 20th century , Local governments “ The pipes suit ” Support the chain operation of catering industry from the perspective of policy , Officially entered the stage of large-scale development , Chain catering enterprises are gradually becoming healthier 、 scale 、 Chain 、 The brand 、 Digital upgrading and development . With the promotion of urbanization and rapid economic development in China , The catering industry has experienced a period of rapid growth , And in 2019 Before the epidemic in , Once upon a time 4.6 Trillion market size ,14-19 year CAGR super 10%.
Although the demand side remains booming , But compared with mature markets with high chain rate such as the United States and Japan , China's catering supply side is still relatively scattered , Overall, it is still in the primary stage of chain .
The main reason for the low chain rate of China's catering industry is ：
1） Our country is vast , Area 、 There are great differences in taste , There are eight traditional Chinese cuisines , And famous snacks from all over the world ;
2） Subject to factors such as technology , Poor standardization of dishes , Highly dependent on the chef , And the commercialization of food materials is low , Labor intensive , Finally, it leads to the low economic efficiency of the restaurant , It is difficult to quickly chain copy ;
3） In high economic growth 、 In the context of the accelerated pace of life , Consumer concept 、 Tastes change with each passing day , New channels 、 New groups continue to derive new catering trends ;
4） Due to low downstream barriers 、 Internal competition is fierce , The fault tolerance rate of direct chain operation of food enterprises is low , The elimination rate of the industry is high , According to statistics , The average survival time of catering stores is only 508 God .
At present , China's five rings of catering “ Each has its own hidden worries ”, Urgent need to solve .
Food end , Still mainly through wholesale channels , The efficiency of industrial chain is relatively low , Direct production and direct selling of American model 、 Reducing circulation is one of the better solutions .
Seasoning end , Due to the complexity and diversity of Chinese Cuisine , The taste requirements for spices are high , This requires catering enterprises to have strong R & D and innovation ability , So as to meet the needs of consumers 、 Changeable taste demand .
Production end , Because of the big B Customer SKU More , Central kitchen enterprises usually can only dominate in subdivided fields , Want to be big B The whole line of SKU The semi-finished product system is difficult , Central kitchen enterprises continue to expand product categories , More to meet the big B Customer SKU Demand for semi-finished products , Scale effect will lead to cost reduction , At the same time, it solves the problem of small B Customers pay more attention to the cost of cost performance .
Catering end , Although prefabricated dishes 、 Customized meal adjustment solves the problem of high fixed cost 、 The stability of dish quality , However, there is still some room for cost control of prefabricated dishes and customized meal recipes . at present , China can perfectly solve all the pain points , Enterprises that have opened up the five ring industrial chain of catering have not yet appeared . Although the elimination rate of China's catering industry is high , The competition presents a red sea , But the economic base 、 societal trends 、 Policy encouragement and the self evolution of catering enterprises are supporting the catering industry to accelerate the chain . China's national economic foundation and consumption capacity have been improved , It has built the foundation for the rapid development of chain .
In the last century 50 years , The American fast food chain industry is growing in per capita GDP achieve 2206 The dollar was born .60 End of the decade , Per capita GDP Growing to 5000 US dollar level , The American catering industry began to enter the era of chain development , Mr. steak (Mr.Steak) And Wendy's hamburger (Wendy’s) The rise of a large number of catering stores with franchise rights represented by .
By 2021 end of the year , Per capita in our country GDP Continuous 3 Annual super 10000 US dollar level , From the perspective of economic foundation and consumption capacity , The basic conditions for the rapid development of chain have been met .
With the accelerating social rhythm, the compression of meal time and the healthy concept of consumption 、 The rise of branding , The fast food industry dominated by franchising is developing in full swing , According to the data on the official website of meter, many aspects and many aspects ,69% People eat fast food at least once a week ,22% Percent said they ate at least one fast food meal a day . The improvement of consumers' requirements for dining efficiency and experience , Promote a single category 、 Restaurants with high turnover rate rise rapidly , Nu Skin tea 、 Marinated duck neck 、 Sauerkraut fish, etc , Further promote the chain process . In the catering industry, food safety problems occur frequently 、 Under the background of high elimination rate of the industry , To further protect people's livelihood 、 Lead the industry to a new stage of development , Local governments “ The pipes suit ” The continuous deepening of reform , For catering chain 、 Provide system for large-scale process / Policy guarantees , Including publicly expressing support for 、 Simplify the administrative process of chain catering 、 Financial support such as rewards and subsidies and regulating supply chain supervision .
The acceleration of digital transformation of catering industry itself and the improvement of supply chain management ability , It's a push “ Thousands of shop time ” The internal foundation of the arrival . In the process of high chain in the United States , There is no lack of service CRM( User management system )、HCM( Human resource management system )、MA( Marketing automation ) And other general-purpose online enterprise services .
alike , Our country SaaS System 、 Scan and order 、 Take-out food 020 And other digital services , Also through enabling catering enterprises to get through the front-end traffic to obtain 、 Expand store sales radius ; Mid tier internal management 、 Brand building and digital system of back-end supply system and enterprise services , Improve the replication rate and success rate of chain catering enterprises . According to the China Chain Store Association 《2021 White paper of China's catering industry 》 data , The chain rate of China's catering market has been further improved , from 2018 Year of 12% Quickly ascend to 2020 Year of 15%.
From the distribution of stores , Chain restaurants with a scale of less than 100 account for the highest proportion ,100-500 A chain store of several sizes , And the proportion of the two is 2020 It has shown significant growth in all years , Respectively from the 2018 Year of 3.8% and 4.0% Growth to 2020 Year of 4.7% and 4.4%.
In a 500-1000 Among the catering enterprises with the scale of chain stores , The head brand enterprises of direct marketing mode have started the process of nationalization , And expand against the trend under the influence of the epidemic . By 2021 year 9 month , The representative of the direct marketing model is the rural base, and the number of Direct stores across the country reaches 569 home , The number of stores of its sub brand Mr. rice 543 home , total 1112 home , Become the first Chinese fast food with more than 1000 Direct stores in China . The number of catering chain stores above 10000 stores accounts for from 2018 Year of 0.7% Growth to 2020 Year of 1.4%, Double the proportion in three years .
Compared with the mature catering industry in the United States , The efficiency of catering supply chain in China is low , There is more room for progress . First , Most supply chain companies only play the role of wholesale 、 Distribution role , Play the role of connecting upstream raw material suppliers and downstream catering enterprises ; second , Most warehouses 、 R & D and quality inspection are still the responsibility of downstream catering enterprises . From the perspective of Supply , Diversification of Chinese food categories 、 The complexity of the process is far more than that of Western food , It puts forward higher requirements for the standardization of chain restaurant enterprises .
From the perspective of demand , The employment rate of women has been increasing 、 Family structure miniaturization and Z Under the background that generations have gradually become the main force of consumption , There is still room for improvement in dining out demand .
With the continuous chain development of the catering industry , From bottom to top, it promotes the reform of the middle and upper reaches industrial chain , The increment of the new subdivision circuit can be expected . The American catering industry has a high degree of Standardization , Mainly because its supply chain is more efficient , Details of division of labor in each link 、 Midstream undertakes more standardization work .
Leading supply chain companies SYSCO Etc. from upstream raw material suppliers , After unified processing （ Including research and development , Storage , Quality inspection, etc ）, Redistribute and export to downstream catering customers . In order to improve the scale of supply chain 、 Degree of standardization and economic efficiency , Midstream food processor 、 logistics 、 Food adjustment and other links from scattered single point to combination into a chain , Constitute the supply chain service system .
among , The midstream prefabricated dishes reduce the complexity of dish processing through the industrialized production of central kitchen , Greatly reduce the processing steps of catering enterprises , Replace rice noodles, etc “ Cost effective ” Garnish , Help speed up meals 、 Increase the peak output value of single store , Finally, promote the stores to reduce costs and improve efficiency , Feedback chain process .
meanwhile , Customized meal preparation service through R & D cooperation 、 Jointly develop 、 Customized production can help restaurant customers improve the standardization of dishes , Reduce dependence on manpower such as chefs , In recent years , The chain process has fully benefited .
