Now Available: Street Stalls/Kiosks in Belgium

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Nov 17 2014

A trend is finally emerging in street stalls/kiosks, according to trade sources. The traditional French fries shops – fritkots or friteries – previously on the verge of obsolescence, which were often hunted down by local sanitary authorities to better comply with hygiene standards, are now picking up again. Belgians appeared to rediscover their popular culinary roots in 2013, mainly since fast food and full-service restaurants emulate fritkot recipes such as authentic Belgian fries and traditional local recipes.

Competitive Landscape

There was only one chained player which accounted for more than a 2% share of value sales in 2013, Belgaufra. The chain specialises in Belgian waffles kiosks. Its production and distribution method is fresh cooking in the kiosk and direct sales to consumers.

Industry Prospects

At first sight, street stalls/kiosks could just begin to keep afloat in the short term. According to some trade sources, within independent outlets, the dirty old caravans of old have almost all disappeared, and were replaced in recent years with cleaner outlets, often bricks-and-mortar outlets, but also kiosks and food trucks. Such outlets should appeal to budget-sensitive consumers – transaction prices are very low, in the region of €3.50 – and/or also upper-middle working classes, who are attracted by the "food truck" trend coming from the US via the UK and France. Marketers are observing a growing fad for street food and food trucks in Western Europe, such as in the latter countries, where it is increasingly fashionable to queue for a gourmet burger or fish and chips.
