Midscale Restaurants No Longer Middling


Midscale restaurants have seen a sudden boom in activity in 2015. The overall growth rate of the industry over the 1st quarter of 2015 was 4%, but midscale restaurants performed far beyond the average. Cracker Barrel sales were up 11.4%!

According to the author of the linked article, the reasons for the sudden spurt in this normally slow sector are:

  • Overhauls in design, equipment, and improved technology
  • A departure from serving only breakfast and lunch and moving toward evening meals and new snack types, though breakfast-only places are also experiencing a surge in growth

A restaurant redesign is an excellent way to shake up a boring restaurant. So is an equipment overhaul. Many new restaurants start by purchasing used equipment, then upgrading as money allows. This means that a restaurant's equipment can be far behind the latest technologies.

Savvy restaurateurs should always be aware of new equipment that is available and how it might help their business.
