NRN presents the 2014 Second 100

Sister report to the Top 100, the annual Second 100 report ranks restaurant brands Nos. 101-200 in terms of U.S. systemwide sales. Offering the same metrics as Top 100, but for this smaller, more growth-oriented universe, the Second 100 is often described as a watch-list of emerging and growth brands.

This year, the Second 100 U.S. restaurant chain market totals $23.4 billion in sales, a 2.7-percent increase from a year earlier. While Second 100 chains maintained their sales-growth momentum in the face of the Top 100’s might, they didn’t maintain their share of sales. The second-tier’s piece of the combined Top 200 sales pie dipped to 9.5 percent in the Latest Year, compared with 9.6 percent in the Preceding Year and 9.8 percent in the Prior Year.
