How many restaurants are in the world?

Sooner we have worked at a project with restaurants and other public locations. And for this we needed an estimation of number of all the restaurants and other public locations as pubs and cafes.

After some investigations we have a raw estimation of these numbers.

Area Number of restaurants, pubs and cafes
United States 700,000
Canada 200,000
Entire world 15,000,000

Also we have discovered an interesting relation between the number of restaurants and other public locations. The number of other public locations(including accommodation and entertainment places) in a place seems to be half of restaurants number of there.

If you need a database with locations we have a new tool called TheWebMiner GEO
