Restaurant Franchises Industry Description

Summary

While Americans love fast food and take out, there’s no substitute for sitting down, relaxing and enjoying a meal at a full service restaurant.

Countless cuisines

Restaurant franchises are available in just about any possible cuisine, from Italian, to Mexican, to Chinese, to burgers or pizza.

There are traditional options—such as burgers and pizza—that Americans have been eating consistently for years, or more adventurous choices surging on new trends and less competition, such as health food and falafel.

Food for thought

Restaurants tend to be on the more expensive side of the franchising spectrum. The good news is business is starting to pick back up, after restaurants suffered to cheaper food alternatives during the recession.

In the mood for food

  • The restaurant industry represents 4 percent of the U.S. GDP and 10 percent of U.S. workforce.
  • There are 616,000 restaurants in the U.S., and that is expected to increase this year.
  • There are 130 million Americans who eat out daily.
