U.S. pizza restaurant sales 2012-2019

Pizza restaurants in the United States generated around 46.34 billion U.S. dollars in sales in 2019, the highest number recorded in recent years. Chain restaurants contributed around 27.81 billion U.S. dollars to the total sales, compared to 18.53 billion U.S. dollars from independent restaurants.

More independent pizzerias… for now

There were 77,724 pizza restaurants in the United States in 2019, around 53 percent of which were independent pizzerias. Chain restaurants – defined as having ten or more stores – increased their number of units to 36,151 in 2019. Pizza Hut was the pizza restaurant chain with the most units in the U.S. in 2019. However, Domino’s Pizza was the leading pizza chain in terms of sales generated.

Spending on carryout orders increases

Consumer spending on pizza delivery in the United States plateaued between 2011 and 2018, before increasing again in 2019. One reason for this could be the rise in consumer spending on carryout pizza, which has increased by around 6.5 billion U.S. dollars since 2004. Carryout orders are more profitable for pizza companies because a delivery driver is not required; therefore, a greater number of companies are promoting their carryout deals.
