The Popularity of U.S. Pizzerias and Italian Restaurants

We know that pizzerias and Italian restaurants are EXTREMELY popular in the United States. But just how popular?
As CHD Expert, which serves the global food service industry, reports:
The Pizza restaurant industry landscape is one of the most popular in the United States, with more than $62 billion in annual pizzeria and Italian restaurant retail sales. As of March 2014, there were more than 98,000 restaurants in the USA that fall into the Pizza, Pasta, and Italian Simplified Menu Type. More than 70,000 of those restaurant operators are sub-classified in the Pizzeria Menu Type. California and New York lead in the number of pizza restaurant establishments. Half of the pizzerias and 84 percent of Italian restaurants in the United States are independently operated.”
Here is an infographic overview from CHD Expert.
