Pizza Facts

Fast Growing!

Pizza was unsurprisingly labeled as the fastest- growing segment of fast-casual restaurants in 2017!

International Growth

Large pizza chains continued to expand beyond U.S. borders this year, with a keen focus on nations with rising disposable incomes.

According to a recent article in The New York Times, many nations view Western foods such as pizza as status symbols, furthering the growth of
fast-food brands in places such as Africa. And Euromonitor International showed sales at Middle East and Africa pizzerias growing from $4.29 billion in 2015 to $4.66 billion in 2016.
