RB's 2020 Restaurant Holiday Gift Guide

Consumers apparently want to look and smell like their favorite restaurants, and chains are here to give it to them.


With sales surging and a franchisee dispute settled, Jack in the Box looks to grow

The chain hopes happier franchisees will add units for the first time in years now that sales and profits are up.

It started when the companies looked at working with one another on technology. Discussions then turned more serious, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The coffee chain is giving its workers at least a 10% pay increase as it works to attract and keep employees.

The burger chain and a consortium of franchisees are bidding for nearly 400 locations. Franchisees will end up with most of the restaurants.

The investment will enable the Athens, Ga.-based chicken chain to accelerate its growth and expand into new sales channels.

The complaint now features 77 former operators who ran nearly 300 locations.

The casual dining chain is reopening four units as it emerges from Chapter 11.

Consultant John Gordon joins this week’s episode of the RB podcast “A Deeper Dive” to talk about the industry’s future, who will win and who will lose.

The health-focused concept, which includes restaurants, vending machines and a subscription service, just received $16 million in funding to expand.

The chicken chain, set to ramp up new units next year, unveiled its “Next Generation Prototype,” including digital cubbies, double drive-thrus, parking for takeout orders and fewer seats.

The pizza chain likens itself as “the original cloud kitchen,” but says its model will be difficult for the newer players to replicate, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
