When Cushman & Wakefield first reported on the food hall movement, the concept was still in its relative infancy. Food halls were largely divided into two basic camps; larger projects—often in historic, transit-oriented locales or smaller, mostly chef-driven concepts—almost all of which were located in Manhattan and just a handful of other American cities. But what began as a trend that was largely relegated to just a few markets has since exploded.
Just as consumer behavior, eCommerce and bricks-and-mortar retail are evolving at a breakneck pace, so too is the food hall movement. In this report, Food Halls 3.0: The Evolution Continues, we explore the most noteworthy trends in food hall development including expansion into different types of CRE, the impact of branding, space design, integrating entertainment elements and much more.
