Retail and Restaurant Expansion Guide - Cushman & Wakefield

Retail and Restaurant Expansion Guide


This inaugural Cushman & Wakefield report tracks the growth plans of roughly 2,000 national retail and restaurant chains throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Notable Trends

  • Retailer growth in 2016 and 2017 will be overwhelmingly driven by discount, dollar store, off-price apparel, food (grocery and restaurant) and service retail concepts
  • Restaurants remain the strongest single category in terms of overall unit growth across all retail sectors
  • Franchise-driven and fast-casual chains leading the way (better burgers and fast-fire pizza are on the rise, but for sheer volume, sandwich shops are still leading the pack)
  • Accelerated e-commerce growth continues to negatively impact a number of retail categories: apparel, books/media/toys, consumer electronics, department stores and financial services
