Feb 7, 2024 from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

Restaurant sales are forecast to top $1T for the first time in history, and the nation’s second-largest private sector employer is on track to continue adding jobs, growing the nation’s second-largest private workforce.

Get key findings, including:
  • Consumers love restaurants: 9 in 10 adults say they enjoy going to restaurants.
  • Operator opinion on competitive pressures.
  • Consumer outlook on the national and local economies – and how that could impact their spending.
  • And which costs operators are watching most closely.

Hear more about the findings from the 2024 State of the Restaurant Industry report. Considered the authoritative source for industry sales projections and trends, it’s based on analysis and forecasts by National Restaurant Association economists and surveys of restaurant operators and consumers. 

Join us on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 2 p.m. ET where Hudson Riehle, SVP of Research and Knowledge will discuss the findings and address audience questions. Register today!
