Multi-unit growth summary – February 2022 Recap

February 28, 2022 | Industry News Monthly Growth Summary | by Grant Gadoci

This is part two in a continued series documenting multi-unit restaurant growth in the United States and Canada.

Across the country, both well known and emerging restaurant brands are expanding their reach with new restaurant openings, and at an increasing pace.

After last year’s continued lull in restaurant openings, largely due to hesitation around regional lockdowns and skepticism of an acutely strained supply chain, multi-unit operators are once again looking to launch new projects as things heat up in 2022.

Here’s a look at this month’s growing restaurant brands.

Notes about our automated unit growth insights

Each month, Restaurantology visits over 15,000 multi-unit restaurant websites to verify a variety of public data points that we can extract, analyze, and turn into valuable insights. We use proprietary technology intended to capture data at its source, meaning wherever possible we’re allowing restaurant companies and brands to tell us how many units they have (such as on a locations page), as well as what technologies they’ve integrated into their website (POS, loyalty, reservations, etc.).
