Who Drinks Iced Coffee?

Each day iced coffee is consumed by roughly 30 million adult Americans(1) and this once-novelty coffee beverage has seen modest growth in the past two years, now appearing on the menu in 74% of quick serve restaurants and 60% of casual dining facilities(2).

Iced coffee appeals to a younger audience with 41% of iced coffee drinkers falling between the ages of 25-34(1).

Interestingly, the quick-service market skews female at 68% and the casual dining market skews male at 62%(3).
