HOW THE RESEARCH WORKS
The Future 50 is a measure of the fastest-growing restaurant concepts with annual sales between $20 million and $50 million. Data is compiled by Technomic. Rankings are based on percent change in systemwide sales from 2020 to 2021; chains must have also opened new units in 2021 to qualify. Unit counts are as of Dec. 31, 2021. When data was not provided, Technomic estimated sales based on public information, comparable concepts, market and other factors. Visit Technomic Ignite Company Data for more information.
