The National Restaurant Association has launched a new and improved version of its Restaurant TrendMapper online subscription service, which includes the Restaurant Performance Index, sales, employment, capital expenditures and food and menu price inflation data.
"Restaurant TrendMapper is a unique resource of industry data and analysis in easy-reference form, which eliminates the need to constantly dig through complicated data files to get a snapshot of what's going on in the industry," NRA Chief Economist Bruce Grindy said in a news release. "The service provides running analysis of key industry indicators that are crucial for tracking trends and planning strategically for the future."
Originally created in 2002, Restaurant TrendMapper features continually updated NRA research and forecasting, as well as analysis of the latest data from government sources, such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics and U.S. Census Bureau. Presented in both text and chart formats, Restaurant TrendMapper also features downloadable data files for use outside of the online platform.
Additional topics covered include wage and hour trends, tourism, restaurant locations, macro-economic indicators, and select state and regional data. The service is also the exclusive source for aggregated data from the NRA’s monthly RPI and Industry Tracking Survey. Visit Restaurant.org/TrendMapper.
