10 fastest growing restaurants all fall within the Grocerant sector.

NPG Group Vice President and noted industry keynote speaker Harry Balzer provided the list of top 10 growing restaurants from NPD’s ongoing data collection of in-home and away-home eating habits. “Growth was determined on a year-over-year percent change in customers for restaurants with more than 300 visits. NPD Group Vice President Harry Balzer acknowledged that a list of restaurants with the greatest number of customers would look different but added that the businesses with the greatest percent change in customers are what the industry looks to for direction in the market.”
