Profiting Clients

An RR subscription benefits clients by providing them with access to our proprietary data and insight and a cost effective due diligence service. Also, we believe RR helps clients minimize their risk of making uninformed decisions because of incomplete information.

Strengthening the Industry

We seek to strengthen the entire industry by: (1) creating defacto standards with our benchmarking data in a business marked by very fragmented and incomplete information sources – adding liquidity to restaurant finance and unit level M&A, and (2) establishing and promoting best practices which benefit both operators and brand managers while bolstering overall industry health for the advantage of all players.
