The U.S. restaurant industry represents $709 billion in annual sales, 4 percent of U.S. gross domestic product and some 14 million jobs. Amid rapidly changing consumer tastes, this fast-paced sector promises great opportunities for those who can spot brands with staying power. At the same time, the industry is fraught with challenges that include the ongoing debate over the minimum wage and new government regulations regarding corporate accountability for franchise actions.
MMG Editor-in-Chief Deborah L. Cohen interviewed experts Amy Forrestal, an investment banker with Brookwood Associates who specializes in the restaurant sector, and Dan Rowe, founder and CEO of restaurant development firm Fransmart.
