This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire

London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/17/2022 -- The latest market publication titled Augmented Reality (AR) in Foodservice – Thematic Research has been added to GlobalData Plc report store. The report identifies the foodservice sector deploying AR as a utility and entertainment tool to be one of the most crucial factors driving the market. AR technology will be most valuable to foodservice companies in its capacity to drive consumer purchases and improve operational efficiency.

View Report Outlook at:

Foodservice companies are investing in technologies such as AR to raise their company profile and stay in tune with relevant trends, such as social media, environmental, social, and governance (ESG), and the metaverse. AR devices can also be used for independent training, inventory management, and improving health and safety standards in food preparation. Foodservice companies deploying these solutions will see greater operational efficiency and improved profit margins.

However, while the cost of AR headsets and smart glasses remains high, the investment will be primarily driven by large quick-service restaurants (QSRs) and foodservice suppliers that have both the financial capabilities and the demand necessary for success.
