This industry is composed of restaurants where patrons pay before eating. Purchases may be consumed on-site, taken out or delivered. Gross sales come from franchises and company-owned stores. Officially reported SEC company revenue (net revenue) refers to revenue obtained only from company-owned stores and franchise fees. Franchised stores' gross sales revenue is not available to the franchisor. Net revenue is therefore always less than gross revenue.
