Next Gen brands to join Twitter chat

These restaurants are on the cusp of breaking into the Top 200

This year, as part of NRN’s Top 200 report, we identified ten growing chains that could soon break into the rankings.

Next Gen brands were selected because they had the highest systemwide sales among chains that did not qualify for the Top 200 and also met two other key criteria: They had sales growth in both the Latest and Preceding Years as well as unit growth in the Latest Year.

On Tuesday, executives from six of those brands will join us on Twitter to discuss growth strategy and their futures. The chat, moderated by NRN senior editor Ron Ruggless, will feature Wetzel’s Pretzels, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Golden Chick, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, BurgerFi and True Food Kitchen.

Join in on Tuesday, Aug. 21, at 1 p.m. EDT. Visit NRN on Twitter @NRNonline and follow along with the hashtag #NRNChats.
