How restaurants can combat an economic slowdown

On this week’s episode of "A Deeper Dive," Joe Pawlak of Technomic discusses a recent downturn in industry growth.

The burger giant is spending big to dramatically change how it interacts with customers, but Wall Street is skeptical of the cost.

U.S. same-store sales rose 4.8% as customers made larger orders, but traffic remains challenged.

The chain is also testing plant-based sausage as it works with Zume on more sustainable packaging.

Weak sales and high costs sent the Mexican fast-food chain’s shares plunging.

The fast-casual salad chain has raised nearly $480 million since 2009. RB’s The Bottom Line looks at the numbers.

The company plans to introduce the plant-based product at more than 9,000 locations next month.

The six-month pilot location, a test of its international expansion strategy, will reportedly lose its lease amid pushback from LGBTQ activists.

Guests can now order from their phone at a table inside participating restaurants.

The departure comes as the delivery provider faces a lawsuit, a boycott, financial losses and is for sale, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The burger chain is sponsoring the Stevenage Football Club and making it the centerpiece of an online gaming marketing campaign.
