Ranking #6

Thompson is one of the country's largest minority-owned businesses. It operates both franchised commercial restaurants and onsite dining sites.

It operates campus dining at almost two dozen higher education accounts, many of them historically black colleges and community colleges. It also partners with various business units of Compass Group on corporate dining and K-12 school contracts, including Chicago Public Schools.

Thompson continues to develop and expand its restaurant brands with the addition of Be Right Burger, a gourmet burger concept that features kiosk locations, mobile ordering, interactive social media connections and instantaneous tabulation of nutritional information for each order. It has also introduced its Austin Grill branded wings into retail distribution and expanded its business in Canada and Mexico.
