CONSUMER INSIGHTS

MCA Eating Out - Consumer Dashboard - December 2018

Consumer Dashboard - December 2018

Overall participation and frequency of eating out for breakfast and lunch dropped back in December, but dinner frequency was unchanged from Dec 2017. Evening meal operators benefited from favourable weather conditions, encouraging consumers to take the opportunity to let loose during the festive period after months of cutting back. Rising average occasion spend for breakfast and dinner was ahead of estimated menu price inflation, suggesting some trading up from consumers.
