Brought to you by Restaurant Business

 

Last year was a generally challenging one for the restaurant industry. Sales for the 500 largest restaurant chains, according to Technomic's Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report, increased just more than 3%. And some sectors, notably casual dining, had a particularly difficult year.
