I suggest a multi-pronged approach to this:

1. Look at industry surveys

  •  Standard &Poor’s Netadvantage
  • IBISWorld

2.  Look at industry financial ratios; use

  •  RMA e-Statement Studies.

3. Look up the financials of specific restaurants (the S&P industry survey provides plenty of publicly traded examples); use Capital IQ.


4. Look up equity analyst reports on these companies; use Thomson One Banker.


5. If you’re dealing with a private company (all the public ones would be used as proxies or benchmarks) or want more detail, do an article search in the business and management press for general articles

  • Power Search on the Library’s website to search through all of our article databases simultaneously (also includes e-books and our catalog). Start with this search: name of restaurant AND (operations OR supply chain OR suppliers); use filtering options in the left-hand column.
