Leading food service data and analytics company CHD Expert, evaluates the state of Texas and creates data packages focusing on the states largest cities and the state as a whole.
Everything is bigger in Texas, especially the BBQ and Burritos, and with the Southwest Foodservice Expo just a few weeks away, leading foodservice data and analytics company CHD Expert, releases new counts on the number of restaurants in the host state of Texas and its largest cities.
As Texas has been growing in population in recent years, this has also resulted in an increase in the number of restaurants operating within the state. During 2012, Texas had a 3.11 percent net growth of new restaurants, whereas 4,283 restaurants had a grand opening, and 2,691 closing their doors for business. In relation to the overall US landscape, Texas had the fourth largest net growth in 2012. For comparison, Connecticut had the largest net growth at 3.99 percent, and Illinois was at the bottom with a decline of 3.16 percent.
While in the Lone Star State, whether you are in the mood for a fine dining experience or a quick delivery service, with over 53,000 eating establishments, there are a lot of places in Texas to satisfy your growling belly. Home to some of the nations best BBQ, in 2012 Texas had a state wide net growth of 5.34 percent in the BBQ Menu Type, with 220 new BBQ restaurants opening over the year. Additionally, this border state has some of the nations most authentic Mexican food, and the Mexican Menu Type saw a 10.04 percent growth over 2012.
And while this abundance is a blessing for the more than 26 million residents of Texas, and tourists who visit the state, keeping tabs on these restaurants can be a daunting task for businesses who aim to sell their products and services to restaurants that operate in Texas.
CHD Expert has made the process of obtaining restaurant information much easier and has produced three unique Foodservice Data Packages, providing data and counts for restaurants in the state of Texas. The first data package focuses on the host Metro area of Dallas/Fort Worth, which has 14,262 unique operators; the second package couples Dallas/Forth Worth with the state’s two largest metropolitan areas, Houston and San Antonio for a total of 30,428 operators; and the third package identifies 53,798 operators across the entire state of Texas.
Some of the information in the data packages includes: Menu Type, Years in Business, Annual Sales, Average Check, Annual Food & Beverages Purchases and Contact Information.
“These data packages are especially valuable to tradeshow exhibitors,” stated Brad T. Bloom, Director of Sales for CHD Expert North America. “It is not cheap to exhibit at a tradeshow and it becomes vital for exhibitors to get the most out of their attendance. Foodservice manufactures and distributers use our data to market their presence at the show and drive foot traffic to their booths. These data packages focus on the state of Texas, but we have the ability to consolidate the same type of information for any state, and many international countries. With the foodservice industry being so dynamic and volatile, having the right information becomes critical to generating sales.”
