Top quick-service restaurants in 2009

Yum! retained its status as the largest operator of quick-service restaurants in the UK during 2009 with 1,400 KFC and Pizza Hut outlets.

There was no change in the top six positions compared with 2008. Lyndale Foods, Greggs the bakers, Cooplands and Peter's all disappeared from the table, while the new entries were largely chicken-based chains (Favorite, Dixy Chicken and Chicken Cottage) along with pizza franchise operator PizzaGoGo.

These facts and figures are reported in British Hospitality: Trends and Statistics 2009, published by the British Hospitality Association.

The full report (which is free to BHA members) can be bought for £250 (for the printed version) or £175 (for a PDF file). For enquiries or orders, phone 0207 404 7744 or contact Philippa Brady.
