Top Pizza Industry Trends to Consider as You Build Your Marketing Strategy

Recent changing consumer preferences and a crowded pizza market have created tougher competition in the pizza category.

  • The average American orders pizza twice per month, spending an average of $20 per purchase.
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, many homebound consumers turned to the original delivery staple–pizza! In fact, 63% of customers said they sought out pizza during the pandemic.
  • Third-party delivery companies and their rapid adoption during the pandemic are changing the face of the pizza industry and creating additional competition. Some pizza brands have embraced this as a way to reach additional consumers and boost business.
  • To extend their product lines, many more pizza shops are adding grab-and-go sections. These sections may contain prepared foods, side options and desserts to increase ticket totals.
