The Restaurant Foodservice Magazine Advertising is up 5.7% in the 1st six months of 2015, a total of 5,317 ad pages.


That is up 285 pages from the same period last year.

This advertising trend seems to reflect the overall growth trends in the Restaurant Industry.  The National Restaurant Association claims a 20.1 percent industry wide sales growth from 2010 to 2015.

So if a 285 ad page increase shows up in 49 Restaurant related magazine titles, than who should be surprised?  This is good news.

The top magazines so far this year included Foodservice Equipment and Supplies, Nation’s Restaurant News, Pizza Today, QSR, and Restaurant Business. 

Foodservice Equipment and Supplies has published a few special editions which helped them edge out NRN for the top spot in the first half of this year.

Restaurant Business had a nice 17% increase in advertising pages that kept them in the top 5 through the first 6 months.

Among Top Line Advertising Categories, the Equipment and Services category just edges out Food and Beverages for the biggest share of ad pages.

But not by much, because when you break it down into more detail you can see that although the companies advertising Management Aids & Services and Cooking Equipment are on top right now, they are immediately followed by Meat/Mexican/Prepared Foods and Food Items General.
