Brand Finance Restaurants 25 2019

The annual ranking of the world's most valuable and strongest restaurant brands.

  • Starbucks continues to dominate as world’s most valuable restaurant brand, with brand value of US$39.3 billion
  • McDonald’s is strongest brand in sector, only brand to receive AAA+ brand strength rating
  • Taco Bell is fastest-growing restaurant brand this year, up 83% to US$3.3 billion
  • US brands dominate top 25, with only 3 non-US brands in ranking

The restaurant sector continues to polarise, creating ever more larger brands that are not only very visible, but also very valuable. In a highly competitive marketplace middle sized and small players need to focus on understanding their customers’ tastes and habits to maintain their loyalty and fend off growing threat from supersized chains.
