LONDON, March 4, 2013

LONDON, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The restaurant industry in the U.S. had a tough 2012. However, the National
Restaurant Association (NRA) expects things to improve in 2013, although at a
slower pace. The NRA expects total restaurant sales to rise 3.8% on a
year-over-year basis to $660.5 billion this year. Full-service restaurant
segment is expected to grow 2.9% in 2013, according to NRA's estimates. For
restaurant companies such as Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX), Panera
Bread Co. (NASDAQ: PNRA), McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD), Jamba Inc.
(NASDAQ: JMBA) and Texas Roadhouse Inc. (NASDAQ: TXRH), the key will be to
keep costs under control and look to expand internationally. On Friday,
restaurant stocks ended on a mixed note even as the broad market posted modest
gains. StockCall analysts initiated preliminary technical research on SBUX
PNRA MCD JMBA and TXRH. These free reports are accessible by signing today at
