I had never heard of this restaurant chain, but that will apparently be the exception and not the rule soon. One of America's fastest-growing restaurant chains suddenly has 3 Illinois locations and that looks like it might be increasing soon.

Investopedia recently ranked the fastest-growing restaurants in America and one of the top 4 is expanding quickly.

Have you ever heard of Lazy Dog Restaurants? Did you know there are already Naperville, Oak Brook and Vernon Hills, Illinois locations as their official website shows?


The Lazy Dog Restaurant menu is one of the most diverse that I've ever seen with all the variety of sandwiches, burgers, salads and I could go on and on.

Investopedia ranked them as the 4th fastest-growing in America saying the "company saw sales growth of 27.1% and operates a little over 30 restaurants in a handful of states with plans to open further across the country". No kidding. They have arrived in Illinois quickly and expansion looks to get even bigger based on projections.

It looks like this restaurant chain has launched nearest the big population centers in Illinois, but it shouldn't be that long before you start seeing downstate places, too.
