Weather disruptions tighter spending disrupt restaurants bills – Seeking Alpha
For week ended December 18, restaurants witnessed softer sales stemming from weather issues and also a tougher spending backdrop with consumers potentially reallocating spending during holiday season.
Same-store sales for the week were up 1% vs. +5% in the first two weeks of December, +6% in November, +7% in October, and +5% in Q3, according to Baird real-time weekly restaurants survey.
The sample size included chains ~$12-13B in annualized sales.
One year comprisions: Casual dining -7%; fast casual +10%; quick-service -4%.
Softer three-year comparisons reflect weaker trend in all segments with sales +14% vs. +18% in the first two weeks of December. Segment-wise three-year comparision: fast-casual +22% (vs. +24% in prior two weeks), quick-service +14% (vs. 19%), and casual dining -2% (vs. +1%).
The remaining of December and Q4 may be impacted by holiday calendar shifts and a higher proportion of sales on weekends.
