A look at biggest growers and decliners of the NRN Top 200

This quarter saw Fiesta with a turnaround

This is part of the Nation’s Restaurant News annual Top 200 report, a proprietary ranking of the foodservice industry’s largest restaurant chains and parent companies.

Behind the growth: Fiesta Restaurant Group Inc.’s Taco Cabana third-quarter same-store-sales growth of 12.2 percent bettered the latest-reported-quarters performances of all systems tracked by Nation’s Restaurant News. Taco Cabana’s latest number lapped year-earlier double-digit negative comps largely resulting from Hurricane Irma, and all but 0.1 percent of its latest-quarter’s growth came from higher check average.
