NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The breakfast daypart continues to help drive sales at full-service restaurants and limited-service eating places. In Foodservice Breakfast Trends in the U.S., 2nd Edition, Packaged Facts estimates restaurant breakfast sales will reach $47.4 billion in 2013, up 5% from 2012. We forecast sales to rise by 5.6% in 2014 and 5.1% in 2015.
At limited-service restaurants, growth is being driven by player entrants; menu item innovation hitting healthfulness, indulgence, and quality notes; and coffee, tea and juice platform innovation. On the heels of rising guest usage during 2011-2013, brands such as Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Panera Bread, and Chik-fil-A are riding the trend. Between 2009-2013 breakfast usage growth has been driven by adults age 65 and older, Asian consumers, and the part-time employed. Leveraging morning visits among coffee drinkers, the segment is also benefiting from workforce expansion and a growing pool of employed consumers.
Meanwhile, full-service breakfast usage trends suggest that a rebound is taking place. Breakfast daypart usage penetration has risen 26% from 2009 to 2013, a higher rate of growth than shown for other dayparts. While many family restaurant chains continue to face guest traffic challenges, brand-specific trends hold promise. And with more and more family restaurants experimenting with take out and portable menu options, the segment is poised to better compete with the limited-service competition.
Foodservice Breakfast Trends in the U.S., 2nd Edition can assist industry participants in understanding industry and consumer trends shaping this increasingly competitive environment, focusing on limited-service and family restaurant chains.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
