National Net Lease FSR Market Analysis for 3Q 2023

By: Senior Managing Director Ryan Zink, MAI, and Analyst Tyler Gin, MBA, of Valbridge Property Advisors |  Tampa

The full-service restaurant (FSR) sector, with its wide range of chain and franchised restaurants offering table-waiting services, constitutes a significant chunk of the U.S. economy. As with the QSR industry, understanding the trends and dynamics of the FSR sector is invaluable for stakeholders in commercial real estate and property appraisal. The value propositions and evaluations of these commercial spaces are intimately tied to the performance of the underlying businesses – the restaurants themselves.

This detailed FSR Market Analysis for 3Q 2023 by Valbridge Property Advisors |  Tampa, leverages data from trusted sources such as Costar, The Boulder Group, FSR Magazine, Franchise Times, IBISWorld, and Valbridge’s proprietary database.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Industry Overview: Despite the setbacks faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the full-service restaurant industry saw a revenue rebound in 2022 that exceeded pre-Covid levels. With a projected growth rate of 1.5% for 2023, and a 1.3% rate from 2023 to 2028, the sector seems to be on a slower recovery trajectory compared to its 2.5% growth rate from 2018 to 2023.
