The U.S. restaurant unit count declined by 1% for a loss of 5204 restaurants in the Spring of 2010 compared t the Spring of 2009 according to foodservice market research by The NPD Group.

NPD’s Spring 2010 ReCount, collected from April 1, 2009, to March 31, 2010, the number of quick service restaurants declined by 1% or 2521 units. Full service restaurant units, which includes the casual dining, mid-scale, and fine dining segments, also experienced a unit loss of 1% or 2683 units.

"The unit losses we’re seeing in our latest census are a reflection of the weakness in the industry with the greatest impact on the independent restaurant operators,” said Greg Starzynski, director, product development-foodservice at NPD.

NPD's tracking showed that visits to U.S. restaurants declined by 3% for the year ending May 2010 compared to the year previous. Consumer spending at restaurants declined by 1%, which was the first decline in dollars that the firm has reported since it began tracking foodservice in 1976.
