    In 2010, the U.S. foodservice market valued $543.4 billion. Prior to this, a contraction in U.S. economy and subsequent reduction in demand led to a 2.1 percent decline in the U.S. foodservice industry in 2009. Following this, the decline in the foodservice market was more subdued as the country's GDP growth stabilized in 2010. In contrast to the review period, the US foodservice market is anticipated to demonstrate growth during the forecast period as a result of the increase in disposable income and the increase in employment in the country between 2011 and 2015.
