Chains including Sonic, Cracker Barrel, and Steak 'n Shake were forced to close locations as the hurricane moved north after battering much of the Caribbean.
Investment firm UBS used a forecasted path of the hurricane to calculate Irma's expected impact on close to 300 companies.
UBS identified 90 companies who conduct more than 10% of their business in the impacted region. Many of these companies are restaurant chains with a significant presence in the South.
