The UK is a nation of fast food lovers

The food and service industry has experienced a boom in recent years, plus the takeaway and food delivery sector boasting extreme growth, which is expected to continue. 

Demand for takeaways has risen – is eating in the new eating out? Younger people are more likely to buy food prepared outside of their home. So, as they age, the market for fast food keeps growing.


There are now over 36,000 takeaway outlets in the UK catering to a wide range of tastes.


Walk down any local high street and you’ll see a number of takeaways offering pizza, curry, fried chicken and Chinese meals.

By offering tasty, good quality food to be collected or delivered, any takeaway businesses can thrive.

Consequently, a broad range of cuisines are on offer including Chinese, Thai, Indian and Italian.

Fast food delivers fast profits

The future of takeaway culture in the UK

The Takeaway Economy Report  revealed that spending on takeaway food grew by 35% from 2009 to 2016. As a result total spending on takeaways in the UK is predicted to reach £11.2 billion in the next five years.

We’re now starting to see a broader range of cuisine choices and healthier options be introduced as part of the UK’s changing lifestyles.

Can I buy a takeaway?

You don’t need to be an expert in a particular type of fast food to own a takeaway. This type of business is suited to somebody who is experienced in food or hospitality and also understands the market. However, it’s not essential to have a background in food. You might just know a good deal when you see one!

Any entrepreneur can buy and run a successful takeaway as long as they conduct market research and provide quality goods and services. If you’re not interested in cooking the food yourself then you’ll have to be confident you can find reliable and skilled staff to help build your reputation.
