Multiunit growth summary – May 2022 Recap

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

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


After April’s showers, May has flowered us with 988 store openings added across 419 multiunit restaurant concepts.

Summer is almost here, and the location growth across multiunit restaurants should be a leading indicator that brands are looking to capitalize on seasonal traffic and profits. How do they make the most of their brand expansion? We predict a seismic shake up in people, product, and processes in the weeks and months to come.

Multiunit concepts of all shapes and sizes — that is, both national logos and promising newcomers — are squeezing in their “plus-ones” just in time for hungry travelers. Find out what technology will be at the top of their purchasing list as they prepare for opening day.

Let’s take a look at the data

Note: Numbers in green (above) confirm continued month-over-month detectable unit growth across segments. How Restaurantology breaks down each segment:

Independent‘mom-and-pop’ concepts, some food trucks, and more generally restaurants with 2-5 locations, funded with a very tight budget.

SMB – the largest growing segment, mostly comprised of emerging brands and restaurants with 50 locations or less that are eager to adopt new technology.

Mid-Market – often blended with SMB, mid-market restaurant brands are known to have legacy technology systems passed down from team to team and can make quicker buying decisions than their enterprise-counterparts.

Enterprise – known for having the longest sales cycle, the enterprise segment has less logos but more market share, with a heavy footprint in QSR and fast-casual dining. Locations can range from 300 – 30,000.

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.).
