Restaurant chains and foodservice companies with U.S. operations can now submit sales, revenue and unit information through for the Top 200 data research project.

This data collection will feed special reports from Nation’s Restaurant News including Top 100, Second 100 and The Next 20, published in June, July and August, respectively. The annual NRN Top 100 and Second 100 reports have chronicled the 200 largest U.S. foodservice operations for more than 40 years. The report ranks chains by U.S. net systemwide sales and parent companies by revenue from operations, franchise royalties and initial franchise fees.

The Next 20, now in its second year, looks at 20 emerging growth chains whose latest-year sales results ranked them No. 201 or higher in the Top 200 qualifying sort.

These definite industry lists of the largest players in foodservice are generated through submitted and estimated results. Submit you data by following the links below:
