Valentine’s Day might be a big deal in Loveland, but a survey of local restaurants across Colorado reveals that it’s not necessarily a great day for eateries.
Womply, a software company serving small businesses, looked at transactions on every single day of 2018 at 42,000 small, local restaurants nationwide and charted some trends.
In Colorado, Womply found that Valentine’s Day is the 129th-best sales day of the year at those local restaurants, according to a press release.
On that special day, the restaurants aren’t necessarily busier than on the average day, although they see an 11 percent increase in revenue because the average ticket is 15 percent higher than average.
By comparison, St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day and Cinco de Mayo all bring more money to local restaurants in Colorado, the release said.
Colorado’s small restaurants have the 33rd-best Valentine’s Day nationwide, according to Womply.
