The market for catering services will expand: There is a colossal need for food catering services in India. Consumers in India are experimenting with different foods as a result of their exposure to other cultures and lifestyles, which is posing a potential opportunity for the international catering sector. India will see a surge in the popularity of mobile food service providers as on-the-go foods become more and more popular among its working population. All major construction firms, corporate offices, hospitals, the educational sector, etc. will benefit from on-site food.
