The largest Asian restaurant chains in the U.S.

Here are the biggest casual dining Asian chains, according to the Technomic Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report.


The biggest fast-casual Asian and noodle chains in the U.S.

These Asian and noodle chains generated the most sales last year, according to the Technomic Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report.

The two sandwiches are similar, but RB's The Bottom Line notes that the burger chain is probably late with its version as the market for such items has exploded.

The leading chicken concepts in Technomic’s Top 500 sales ranking all showed positive growth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

McDonald’s expects to open more this summer while Wendy’s has most of its dining rooms open. But customers are slow to eat inside, at least for now.

Earlier this year, the fast casual added subscription-based meal preparation company SuperFit Foods to its portfolio.

More concepts are hoping they can translate improving sales to strong unit growth, either themselves or with franchisees.

Foodtastic said it has aggressive expansion plans for the plant-based fast-casual chain.

Sweetgreen is the latest chain reportedly considering an initial public offering. Dutch Bros and Torchy’s are both considering a similar move and Krispy Kreme has already filed, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Through menu maneuvering and strong vendor relationships, Golden Chick hopes to get a grip on chicken prices and supply.
