2009 - 2010 U.S. Retail Restaurant Performance Index - Complete Comparison List

Survey of Present and Future Expectations of U.S. Restaurant Operators

By

Similar to the monthly University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Survey, the National Restaurant Association measures the optimism and pessimism that restauant operators have about the retail restaurant industry each month. This survey and its resulting index is called the "Restaurant Performance Index."

Although restaurants are considered to be part of the U.S. retail industry, conditions affecting the sale of retail merchandise are not necessarly the same conditions that are affecting retail food. Restaurants need their own measurements.

This index is based on the responses of restaurant operators throughout the U.S. A score of "100" is considered to be neutral. Anything above 100 indicates current or future expansion and a score below 100 indicates current or future retraction.

Below is a complete comparison of the Restaurant Performance Index numbers for 2009 and 2010, as reported by the National Restaurant Association.
