Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Restaurants industry is characterised by a low level of market share concentration, with no player accounting for more than 5% of revenue. The industry is highly fragmented and dominated by small, individual businesses. Barriers to entry are low, and therefore do not significantly inhibit new players. Over 73% of restaurants hire less than 20 people, and just under 20% are owner-operated, non-employing businesses. Few businesses in the industry employ more than 100 people, and the majority of those that do are located in New South Wales and Victoria. Some renowned chefs have successfully built a larger portfolio of restaurants in these states. These establishments benefit from their association with the chef.
