Casual Dining Industry Now Covered by F&D Reports

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - The casual dining industry is facing one of its most difficult periods as customers are feeling the pinch of higher gas prices, a weaker real estate market and shrinking disposable income. If your business is dependent on the health of this sector, you owe it to yourself to review F&D Reports' new Foodservice Sector Newsletter, designed to help keep you on the pulse of the industry. The newsletter is published weekly and brings the reader all of the critical industry activity in clear and concise language rather than endless pages of fluff... we know the time pressures today's executive is under and have created an "easy read" that respects that schedule.

F&D Reports has also recently completed a comprehensive Special Analysis on the $70 billion casual dining industry which analyzes macro-economic pressures affecting the segment, emerging industry trends, regulatory issues, recent M&A activity, bankruptcies and comparable store sales trends. The analysis includes profiles on many of the top players in the industry, including Darden Restaurants (DRI), Brinker International (EAT), Applebee's (APPB), IHOP (IHP), Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD), PF Chang's (PFCB), Outback Steakhouse, and Ruby Tuesday (RT) -- among others.

F&D Reports has long been recognized as the premier financial and operational information provider with focus on food & drug. They have now brought that same level of expertise and insight into the foodservice channel by providing reports on over 150 private/public foodservice companies.
