Financial Intelligence (formerly Black Box Intelligence), a Black Box Intelligence (formerly TDn2K) company, has partnered with the leading SaaS location intelligence technology platform SiteZeus®. Financial Intelligence average unit volume data will integrate and enhance the SiteZeus platform, making it easier than ever for brands, brokers, and developers to screen markets based on actual restaurant revenue performance.

“We’re very pleased to announce our partnership with SiteZeus. Their state-of-the-art system brings powerful market planning capabilities to a wide variety of organizations. It’s an ideal application for our Financial Intelligence Market Index, which is powered by sales and traffic data from more than 26,000 restaurant units and reflects $67 billion in annual sales revenue,” said Bob Rycroft, Managing Director at Black Box Intelligence.

The partnership brings the most extensive set of sales data for restaurants to a best-in-class location technology. Through this partnership, restaurant owners and developers can build modules allowing them to make the best business decisions for future expansion.

“This partnership with Black Box Intelligence’s Financial Intelligence is an example of two organizations working together to maximize their value and deliver it to the end user. This represents the first partnership of its kind for Financial Intelligence and we are honored to be the location intelligence technology platform to distribute their analytics,” added Keenan Baldwin, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of SiteZeus.

Financial Intelligence joins a list of other leading data providers that includes: INRIX, UberMedia, Applied Geographic Solutions, CAP Locations, and others as part of the SiteZeus Data Exchange.

The integration of Financial Intelligence into the SiteZeus technology will help brands answer three key questions: Which markets are associated with higher or lower average unit volumes? What percentage of brands exceed their national AUV in each market? And, by market, how do my units compare to competitors from an average volume standpoint?
