Our Approach


Since 1996, we have been providing full reporting on ALL new restaurant opening locations in the U.S. each week, 49 weeks per year.

It’s in our DNA, it’s what we do.

So why us? Here’s the short answer: fresh data, collected by experienced human beings and backed by years of experience.

Who does the work? Our team of U.S. researchers, working in the U.S. Technology can be useful, and outsourcing can lower costs, but nothing can replace the human interaction and judgment of our experienced, persistent U.S. professionals.

Restaurantdata®.com’s research team collects information by making hundreds of phone calls daily and personally interviewing restaurant staff and corporate personnel. We believe there is no substitute for this kind of comprehensive, outbound telephone research.

We also leverage powerful search tools and filters that are simply not found in other directories. Unique per location categories in our directory include number of seats, square footage, average check size, unit sales volume, number of employees, social media score, ingredient spend and dozens of other criteria.

Unlike many of our competitors, who rely on automated research tools and stale publications, Restaurantdata®.com delivers information that is regularly verified and updated.

Our motto is “just say NO to dead data.”
