THE US RESTAURANT market will not be dominated by burger chains within the next six years, according to a research note by analysts at Janney Capital Markets.

But that doesn’t mean they won’t be making money.

And burger chains still account for three of the top five US restaurant outlets by sales.

McDonald’s takes the No. 1 slot with $35.9 billion in sales in 2013, followed by Subway ($12.7 billion), Starbucks ($11.7 billion), Wendy’s ($8.8 billion), and Burger King ($8.5 billion).

In six years, Wendy’s and Burger King will slide down to the No. 6 and No. 8 positions, respectively, according to the analysts’ predictions. McDonald’s is expected to maintain its top spot with $43.8 billion in sales, followed by Starbucks ($18.8 billion), Subway ($18.4 billion), Dunkin’ Donuts ($11.6 billion), and Chick-fil-A ($10.8 billion).

The graph below shows Janney’s full predictions for 2020.
