Restaurant Sales Surge

Posted by Kate Hubbard on Feb 20, 2020 7:25:35 AM

ArrowStream economists reported impressive January restaurant retail sales, which were up 7.4 percent from last year. 

"This was due to a 4.3 percent increase in traffic and a 3.1 percent rise in menu prices. The restaurant sales annual gain was the second largest in a year. Perhaps more impressively, restaurants carried the biggest percentage of total retail sales on record. And as the chart shows, this is a building trend."

Future Expectations 

"Good news for the industry as a whole; however, competition in the industry will remain fierce."
