The researchers of Technomic Ignite Company have re-evaluated their sales forecast for the United States’ leading restaurant chains.

Due to the ongoing and severe effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the top 100-ranked chains are forecasted to experience a cumulative sales decline of 10.6 percent in 2020, resulting in a net loss of over $29 billion in total sales volume.
