The difference between QSR and Fast Casual Restaurants

Introduction about Fast Casual


This brings us to fast casual.

Fast casual takes a bit of QSR and a bit of Casual Dining, to bring you a hybrid of sorts. There is now room for higher level of food quality, in an inviting ambiance with a touch of uniqueness in design from branch to branch. It is definitely more upscale in comparison to QSRs, with different designs, softer lighting, and homely touches.

These restaurants bring to their customers a more upscale and diversified menu. Most of the time they source local ingredients, produce and prepare on site. Sourcing locally allows fast casual restaurants to offer healthier menu alternative with more exclusive ingredients.

Fast Casual restaurants also have no table service and fast and convenience service still rules the day as we saw in QSR.

Quality control on the restaurants

All quick service and fast casual restaurants are not the same, but quality control on the restaurants remains as one of their best factors. To stand out in a busy and crowded industry full of brands and options, brands need to focus on more than just food quality: they need to focus on providing a whole quality experience. This means quality food, service, and price.

Being fast casual or fast food, YYT Food Corporation will deliver exciting food -everyday – from a wide variety of international & homegrown brands under its wings. YYT Food Corporation will ensure customers will experience up-to-date F&B concepts in both fast casual & quick service sectors.
