2015 Restaurant Industry Forecast
The National Restaurant Association’s comprehensive, annual outlook for and overview of the U.S. restaurant industry, covering national and state-by-state sales and employment forecasts, as well as workforce, segment, consumer, technology and menu trends.
Driven by an improving economy, restaurant industry sales are expected to hit a record high of $709.2 billion in 2015. Although this will represent the sixth consecutive year of real growth in restaurant sales, the gains remain below what would be expected during a normal post-recession period due to a range of challenges. However, the restaurant industry will remain the nation’s second-largest private sector employer with a workforce of 14 million.
