This week’s 5 head-spinning moments: Bang! We’re off
The year hasn't gotten off to a good start for restaurant unions, social media liars, soda-gulping slobs and at least one celebrity-loving restaurant chain.
25 top limited-service chains in sales and satisfaction
A restaurant chain's sales don't always reflect customer satisfaction, and vice versa. Here, we rank the leading limited-service chains using a formula that includes financials, consumer satisfaction and value.
More than half of the restaurant industry’s $491 billion in sales come from the Top 500 chains. And these giants grew at a modestly stronger rate, both in terms of sales and store counts, than the industry overall. Restaurant Business focused on the leading 250 performers to identify trends for our first-ever special report delivering lessons from Technomic’s annual Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report. This special package includes lessons for all operators from the largest chains by segment, menu category and more.
