Exclusive Premium Statistic

Number of restaurants in the U.S. 2011-2016 This statistic shows the number of restaurants in the United States from 2011 to 2016. In Fall 2016, there were 620,807 restaurants in the U.S.
Restaurants in the U.S. - additional information

The number of restaurants in the United States increased gradually from fall 2011 to spring 2014 when it reached its peak at 637,584. Since then this figure has gradually declined to 624,301 in the spring of 2016. In 2015, franchise establishments made up almost a third of this figure. There were 186,977 quick service restaurant franchises and 30,898 full service restaurants franchises in the U.S. in 2016.

In 2015, food and drinks sales in restaurants in the U.S. exceeded 740 billion U.S. dollars, much higher than in 1970 when they reached just 42.8 billion U.S. dollars. Unsurprisingly, two thirds of these sales were made in general eating places.

When surveyed in November 2016, 44 percent of U.S. consumers said that they dined out at a quick-service restaurant, 35 percent dined out at a full-service restaurant, and 21 percent used food delivery services at least once per week. In the same year, the most important reason why U.S. consumers tried a new restaurant was because of recommendations from friends.
