Local bars and lounges no doubt already know this, but a business-software provider has released a survey that reveals that St. Patrick’s Day was the fourth-best sales day of 2018 in Colorado.
Womply, in a press release last week, said it analyzed transactions at 3,500 locally owned bars and lounges across the country every day last year.
In Colorado, those establishments saw a 94 percent increase in the number of transactions over a typical day, and 114 percent boost in revenue, Womply said.
- St. Patrick’s Day was a better revenue day for local bars last year than were Super Bowl Sunday, New Year’s Eve and Cinco de Mayo.
- Colorado lagged behind the national average: Nationwide, St. Patrick’s Day was the best day of the year, with a 108 percent jump in transactions and a 122 percent boost in revenue.
- Locally owned restaurants in Colorado also saw more green on St. Patrick’s Day last year. It was the 20th-best sales day of the year for Colorado eateries, according to Womply, with transactions up 30 percent over an average day and revenue up 48 percent.
