FY 2014 Restaurant Benchmarking Update
Our quarterly report tracks key metrics of publicly traded restaurant companies by segment. In this issue, we look at operating results through 2014. Same-store sales improved across the board, with the fast casual and pizza segments seeing the most significant growth. The main driver for growth was increased guest traffic as an uptick in employment and low gas prices gave consumers greater discretionary income. Our report also indicates cost of sales remained consistent across most categories in 2014, despite significant escalation in the cost of beef, pork and cheese.
