CHICAGO, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant chains are in an extremely contested fight for share of stomach. Now more than ever, it's imperative to have competitive insights when expanding into new or existing markets. Easy2FIND is a new online analytics tool that simplifies food industry research and intelligence at the unit level.

Easy2FIND lets chains see and understand a restaurant's footprint in any given geographic market and restaurant segment. Find out where your competitors are opening new unit locations and how they impact sales. By providing restaurants with competitive analysis and intrusion metrics they are better poised to uncover market expansion potential.

"Brands looking to enter new markets, penetrate existing markets or just track the impact of their competition need information like this to execute smarter strategies," said Darren Tristano, Executive Vice President at Technomic. "This new tool gives operators the full scope of what menu segment competing restaurants serve and the approximate sales they generate. This, along with a look at the demographic makeup of each DMA, will bring focus to your consumer composition and identify if they align with a restaurant concept."
