<strong>What Does EATZ Invest In?</strong>
<strong>Why Invest in EATZ?</strong>
- Long-Term Secular Trend – American’s love of eating out has grown steadily over the last 80+ years – from only 25% in 1955 to 51% in 2019. While there was a decline due to the global pandemic, estimates place that spending number back over 50% in the immediate post-pandemic future.1
- Global Growth Opportunity – Many of the largest U.S. based restaurant chains have undergone substantial international growth. For example, China has more KFC’s outlets and contributes greater sales than the U.S.
- Pent-Up Demand – As COVID herd immunity spreads, we believe consumers are ready to return to eating out. The National Restaurant Association forecasts restaurant industry sales to bounce back by 11% in 2021.
- Post-COVID Opportunity – COVID-19 forced restaurant operators to become innovative to survive. As the world re-opens, growth expectations for this battered bur resourceful sector are high.
<strong>Where Can EATZ Fit in a Traditional Portfolio?</strong>
- Thematic Diversification – Allows you to invest in multiple restaurant industry securities in a single trade.
- Only ETF Dedicated Solely to the Restaurant Industry – Offers focused exposure to the global restaurant and foodservice industry when you want it.
