From the Paper:

"According to Mockler, the specialty coffee cafe segment was a part of a larger restaurant industry divided into independently owned restaurants and restaurant chains. Restaurant chains were further divided into full-service and limited service restaurants. Full-service restaurants were represented by dinner houses, family restaurants and grill/buffet restaurants. Limited-service restaurants were divided into fast food and specialty eateries. Fast food was represented by sandwich, pizza, and chicken chains."
