Food courts are so 1996. No really, they are, and as time goes on, more and more mall operators realize this. Today, many restaurants offer lunch and dinner specials, competing with food courts for hungry shoppers. With comparable pricing and better food, people are more likely to visit the restaurants in or near malls.
Mall food courts have been decreasing in popularity since the early 2000’s, particularly across New York and New Jersey. Three malls in WNY have already reduced their food court options by half. The result? Happy shoppers! Most people are on board with this change.
However, it leaves a large market behind. You have teenagers who hangout, boyfriends who wait for their women to shop, moms with excited children, and a wealth of other shoppers who want a quick snack, but not the whole sit-down restaurant ordeal. You also have the mall employees who may not have time to leave or go sit-down; they depend on something quick and affordable for lunch.
