U.S. food sales are almost evenly split between at-home and away-from-home markets
Since 2006, at-home food sales have accounted for just over half (51 percent) of total food expenditures, with the away-from-home market accounting for 49 percent. In 1960, the away-from-home market had a 26-percent share of total food expenditures. Rising incomes and busier lifestyles have led consumers to spend less time cooking and seek the convenience of food prepared away from home.
