The Burger Restaurants industry has relished growth in the domestic economy over the five years to 2018 as the unemployment rate fell to record lows and per capita disposable income increased, providing consumers will more money to eat away from home. Although the industry experienced increased competition from the broader food service sector, burger restaurants still represent the largest segment of the market, especially among limited-service restaurants. The decline in industry growth during the period primarily stems from the surge in food service establishments outside of the Burger Restaurants industry.
