FSR’S ANNUAL LIST OF HIGH-POTENTIAL, PERFORMANCE-PROVEN FULL-SERVICE BRANDS WITH 50 LOCATIONS OR FEWER AND GROWING FAST.
By FSR Staff August 2019 Chain Restaurants

The FSR 50 is FSR’s annual list of high-potential, performance-proven full-service brands. Each has fewer than 50 locations and is growing fast.

This year we tapped the expertise of Darren Tristano, founder of consulting firm Foodservice Results, in compiling the list. An industry veteran, Tristano has monitored and analyzed the restaurant space for nearly three decades.

Below is our collection of some of the hottest full-service brands under 50 units. Please note: An earlier version of this chart included 2017 financial data for some brands. We regret the error and have revised the chart to reflect the most up-to-date information.
