Go inside Top 500 restaurant chain performance with NRN’s editors

Join for a live session where the editors will discuss their reporting for this year’s exclusive report.

2020 was an unprecedented year for restaurants, and while 2021 did see broad recovery across much of the industry, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still reverberating into the foodservice future.

That fact is outlined in Nation’s Restaurant News’ recent Top 500 report, published in partnership with Datassential and its Firefly 500 platform.

To provide a clearer idea of what those effects look like — and to talk more about Top 500 restaurant chain performance — NRN’s editorial team is hosting a LinkedIn Live session on Tuesday, June 28, at 2 p.m. EST.

Hear more from the editors about their reporting for the Top 500 issues, their perspectives on the state of the restaurant industry and their opinions on where things might go from here! Just follow Nation’s Restaurant News on LinkedIn and join the live session on Tuesday. Subjects will include:

  • Casual-dining’s resurrection
  • How restaurants tweaked operations and menus to be more efficient
  • The pizza and wings categories’ return to earth
  • A shakeup among the top 10 chains
  • Restaurants’ push toward the suburbs
