About Restaurant TrendMapper

The National Restaurant Association developed Restaurant TrendMapper in 2003 for restaurant professionals and industry watchers who want timely analysis of the economic trends that impact the restaurant industry, as well as forecasts of key indicators on the national and state levels. It was re-launched in 2014 with a fresh new look and functionality. It saves subscribers from having to dig through complicated masses of government data to extract relevant information, and is the exclusive source for aggregated Restaurant Performance Index data.

The flagship features of this online subscription service are the National Restaurant Association's monthly Restaurant Industry Tracking Survey and the Restaurant Performance Index. It also includes detailed monthly analyses of national restaurant sales and employment, wholesale food and commodity prices, menu price inflation, wage and hour trends, as well as other key economic indicators that impact the restaurant industry. In addition, it tracks trends in national and state eating and drinking place location counts, and details the NRA’s national and state sales forecasts.
