The total U.S. restaurant unit count dropped from 587,335 in the fall of 2010 to 580,852 in the fall of 2011. The loss of more than 6,000 units was mostly due to independent restaurant closings, based on the most recent restaurant census conducted by The NPD Group, a leading market research company.
