Chain Store Guide has just released its report of the top 50 fastest growing chain restaurant operators in the U.S. and Canada. Chain Store Guide is a market research company that focuses on the retail and restaurant industries. The company is a division of Lebhar-Friedman,Inc., publisher of such industry standards as Nation’s Restaurant News, Chain Store Age and Retailing Today. Chain Store Guide based the rankings on the five-year growth by units among companies operating at least 20 locations.
With a few exceptions, the CSG ranking is comprised primarily of small but rapidly growing companies. Most have been in existence for not much more than a decade, but mostly through franchising, they’ve weathered the economic downturn of recent years and have continued to thrive. Suppliers and service providers looking for new opportunities would be well served to focus on this vibrant group of companies.
