There's still time for restaurant operators to weigh in on industry trends and how they manage and operate their businesses. FastCasual.com is gathering data for its annual "State of the Industry" report and is asking operators to take a survey covering a variety of issues that affect their daily operations.
Topics include how operators use technology, marketing and social media. Also included are commodity pricing, sales increases and business operations.
"We already have hundreds of respondents but want to hear from as many as possible in order to provide a solid look at where the industry is headed," said Cherryh Butler, senior editor of FastCasual.com. "These survey results will help fast casual restaurant operators learn from one another, so it's a huge benefit to our community."
Those who complete the survey will be entered to win one of five $100 Visa gift cards and will also receive a coupon code for 25 percent off the finished document.
