While 2016 was a rough year for chain restaurants, more than half of the industry’s $521.9 billion still comes from the Top 500 chains—and nearly 94% of those dollars and 93% of those units are represented in the Top 250. Here, we rank those concepts by U.S. systemwide sales and dive into Technomic’s Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report with insights from the wins and losses of these giants.
