Multiunit growth summary – April 2022 Recap

May 2, 2022 | Industry News Monthly Growth Summary | by Grant Gadoci

This is part four in a continued series documenting multiunit restaurant growth in the United States and Canada.

April has showered us with more Multiunit Restaurant (MUR) openings, with 466 stores added across 255 concepts.

True to form, April has “made it rain” with continued expansion plans and ongoing growth for both emerging and well-known restaurant concepts. Many of our favorite brands are yet again opening new stores, expanding their footprint, and growing their trading areas domestically.

This month’s summary contains over 250 MURs who increased their number of locations by one or more physical location in the past month.

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.).
