Economic and political anxiety continues to take its toll on the Eating Out market, as consumers reduce their eating out frequency at all meal occasions. Lunch suffered the heaviest decline in frequency and is now at the lowest level recorded from the Eating Out Panel. Consumers, concerned with watching their wallets, are opting to skip lunch or prepare more lunches at home rather than eating out at restaurants, with pubs and chain restaurants experiencing the largest declines in share of lunch visits. Average spend has risen at all meal-times with dinner seeing the strongest growth, outpacing menu price inflation. Sandwich retailers have grown in popularity at breakfast and lunch from last year, reflecting the growing popularity of convenient and affordable on-the-go food.
