Industry Reports

Fast Food Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

You likely know more about the fast food industry than you realize. If you live in the United States - or pretty much anywhere else - it’s everywhere. Off of every exit on the highway, and at every rest stop. In the food court at the mall, and on the commercial strips on the outskirts of town. In cities and at airports.

Beauty Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

It is every product and service dedicated to helping us look - and smell - the way we want, or the way we believe we should for professional reasons. And our definition of beauty is malleable and ever changing - providing never ending opportunities for the industry to innovate.

Burger Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

In the early 1200s, the Mongol army placed slabs of lamb and mutton under their horse saddles as they rode into battle. After the meat was tenderized by the saddle and the back of the horse, they would consume it raw, as if it were an uncooked beef patty. This strange but practical method eventually developed into the creation of modern ground beef. Now that you’ve got ground beef, you know what has to come next: the hamburger.

With the still simmering public debate over the benefits and detriments of Obamacare - and over its possible reversal - it gets easy to let our eyes glaze over and wait for the smoke to clear. But hiding behind the controversy are health-care industry trends that offer tremendous business opportunities for entrepreneurs - no matter which way the political winds blow.

Education Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

Chocolate Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

If you answered “neither,” you’re in the minority. Most people either want to get a taste of that chocolate goodness, or just finished having one. Particularly in the western world and increasingly in the eastern, it is a hugely popular ingredient or main event for desserts and even meals.

Pet Care Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

Well over half of the households in the United States own a pet – almost 80 million homes! Man’s best friend might be the most iconic, but our taste in pets is both varied and dynamic. But whether it’s a dog, cat, horse, bird, fish, or lizard – pets need to eat. They need to be kept clean, and have a place to sleep. Pets need to be cared for – and with over 300 million pets in the US that makes for a booming business.

Cleaning Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends

From where I’m sitting I can see at least a dozen things that need a regular cleaning – windows, desks, carpets, trash bins; a kitchenette with a tile floor, appliances, and dishes; a lounge with upholstered furniture, lamps, hardwood floors, etc. And if I was home I can assure you the whole place could use a once over.

Weight Loss Industry Analysis 2019 - Cost & Trends
