RESTAURANTDATA.COM TOP 300 RESTAURANT CHAINS LIST – COUNTS ORGANIZED FROM MID TO LATE 2017.

Our Top 300 list includes concepts which account for over $271 billion in annual sales*.  The list is dominated by counter service restaurants (CSR).  The CSR concepts have annual sales above $204 billion.

The ranking is done using annual sales estimates by concept. Companies with at least 53 concept units and up.

Restaurantdata.com maintains 3 popular databases:  Restaurant Unit Locator (over 730,000 US locations – independents, regional chains and large national chains); Restaurant Chains (over 4,500 companies; headquarters contact information; KPI); and, the Foodservice Report (weekly recap of the latest restaurant openings available by region and for the entire US).

The Top 300 List uses location data from the Restaurant Unit Locator; HQ location data from the Restaurant Chains; and KPI from the Restaurant Chains. 

Restaurant Chains data is based on verified information updated on an ongoing basis.  We call chain offices throughout the year to verify location counts, key employees, and contact information.

The Restaurant Unit Locator data is constantly updated from new restaurant openings, closings of existing locations and routine discoveries of new restaurants on public websites.

New openings are updated quarterly and closings are updated semi-annually.

We make the RESTAURANTDATA.COM Top 300 List available in Excel and CSV formats along with contact info.  The data files include name, US location count, menu category, service type, AUV estimate, annual sales estimate, ranking and headquarters location.

 ‘* Our annual sales estimates are calculated using our  AUV estimates multiplied by our current location counts.  The AUV estimates represent our best guess for 2018.  We use previous sales numbers from annual reports, franchise disclosure documents, industry press and other sources plus a growth factor.

THE TOP 300 location list is available along with contact info for all chains.

The TOP 300 is adjusted periodically.  If you’re company wants to comment, edit, modify or change sales and unit count numbers, please CONTACT US.
