Casual Dining – Full-service restaurant chains with average checks of $8-20 per entrée. Restaurants frequently carry beer and wine licenses. With an appetizer, beverage, and dessert, checks frequently come to $20 per person, though lunch specials less than $10 for an entire meal are also common. Examples of chains included in this segment are Chili’s, Applebee’s, and Red Lobster.
Chain – Chains are multi-unit foodservice concepts operating under a single brand name, such as McDonald’s or Pizza Hut. A restaurant chain consists of two or more restaurants owned by one person or company. Usually, all restaurants in a chain have similar décor and serve the same food.
Consumer Unit – A consumer unit is defined as either 1. all members of a particular household who are related by blood, marriage, adoption, or other legal arrangements; 2. a person living alone or sharing a household with others or living as a roomer in a private home or lodging house or in permanent living quarters in a hotel or motel, but who is financially independent; or 3. two or more persons living together who pool their incomes to make joint expenditure decisions.
