How the Top 500 restaurant chains fared during a tough 2020

This week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” features Technomic’s Joe Pawlak, talking about this year’s ranking of the 500 largest restaurant chains in the U.S.


These are the 10 fastest growing chains in the U.S.

Large chains dominated the list of the quickest growing concepts, according to the Technomic Top 500, as the pandemic favored big chains over small chains.

Technomic polled consumers in 25 countries to discover which proteins rose to the top of the pie.
