Growing off-premise demand drives major industry changes

A survey from Technomic and the National Restaurant Association shows rapid increases in off-premise sales—and a restaurant industry scrambling to keep pace.

The sandwich giant, once the second-largest chain in the U.S., is expected to fall out of the top five in the Technomic Top 500 for the first time since 2001.

Based on Technomic data, the chain’s chicken sandwich frenzy was bad news for two big rivals. But now it faces pressure to get its supply chain back, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Better performances by a handful of big concepts are putting Top 500 chains on pace for their best year since 2015.

Males have decreased their visits each of the past two years, according to Technomic data, and value might be the reason, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Despite a booming economy, the industry has been hit with high labor costs and falling traffic, but things are looking up.

This week’s edition of "A Deeper Dive" features Technomic’s Joe Pawlak talking about the future of the Top 500.

RB’s The Bottom Line looks at what it would take for the chicken concept to overtake McDonald’s and Starbucks to be the country’s largest restaurant chain.

Sales rose 1.7% in April, thanks to strong improvement in quick-service and fast-casual chains, as dine-in remains a challenge.
