The decline of the burger and fries economy? | SmartPlanet | Procrastination Daily | Scoop.it

A new report from the Hudson Institute found that it makes good business sense to put an emphasis on low-calorie foods. The report analyzed the 21 largest restaurant chains in the United States — from fast food restaurants like McDonald’s and Burger King to fast-casual and sit-down restaurants like Panera and Olive Garden — which represent nearly 50 percent of the revenue of the top 100 restaurants with $102 billion in annual sales. It found that lower calorie foods and beverages outperformed higher calorie foods and beverages at 17 of the 21 restaurants, between 2006 at 2011.
