The Future of Convenience Stores:     Aggressively Pursuing Eat-In Business by Adding Fast Food and Seating Areas.

As the market for ready-to-eat food increases year by year, it is important to note that  one major difference between convenience stores and restaurants is the presence of seats and eating areas.                                                                   As a result, an intense competition has developed between stores selling ready-to-eat food and restaurants.                   Ready-to-eat food is mostly sold at convenience stores, supermarkets and department stores.

 Using examples of two Japanese enterprises for reference, we will examine the current “hybrid” situation of convenience stores, department stores and supermarkets adding seats and eating areas. We will consider the direction of this new segment of the foodservice industry, and consider various problems that may arise.
 (Ready-to-eat = Side dishes, convenience store “bentos” and other cooked food that can be eaten at home or anywhere )
