Curbside takeout becoming a fast growing area of the $550 billion restaurant industry in US

Curbside takeout has become one of the fastest growing areas of the $550 billion restaurant industry in the United States. Takeout sales at casual dining chains have grown about 10% annually over the last three years - double the annual rate of their overall growth, according to Technomic, a restaurant consulting firm. Technomic estimates that some 20% of the growth in curbside and takeout has comes at the expense of in-restaurant dining.

In 2005, only 58% of all main dinner dishes were made from scratch, a steady drop from 65% in 1995, according to NPD.
