Interview with Joe Pawlak, Managing Principal, May 2018
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.

Listen in as Joe Pawlak talks with Jonathan Maze, executive editor of Restaurant Business, about the issues that affected industry sales in 2017. Joe covers off on what’s affecting casual-dining sales, which chains are making the biggest moves and the future of the fast-casual sector.
