The limited-service chicken category overall increased total sales by 8% to $22.2 billion and grew units by 4% to 14,166. The largest chains may not have the velocity of the smaller, but the 7% increase in sales at Chick-fil-A, 4% at KFC and 7% at Popeyes--along with Raising Cane's 31% sales bump and PDQ's 30% rise--shows a healthy category overall.
