Although many mega popular chain restaurants are stand alone successful giants, some of the world’s most well-known restaurants aren’t who you think they are, they’re just wearing a brand, so to speak. 

Investors know this, because some of the restaurant industry’s largest holding companies are available for purchase on the markets, along with more traditional dining joints as well. With a mix of both individual spots and subsidiaries, the restaurant sector offers plenty of options for both staple investors and food fanatics. 

Who are they? Here’s the top 10 stocks by market cap in the Restaurant sector.
