THE STATE OF LOCAL RESTAURANTS 2018
We analyzed transactions for every day of the 2017 calendar year at 26,000 small, independent restaurants across America. The result is a comprehensive look at when restaurants earn the most money, when they seat the most guests, and which states make the most dough from patrons who #eatlocal.
What we learned about New Hampshire
New Hampshire is the 23rd-ranked state for restaurant revenues in the United States. Restaurants in The Granite State have a somewhat different annual seasonality than most states, with their top months being in July and August. Interestingly though, their top 5 single-day sales days occur over non-holiday weekends in the fall.
Understanding this report
To understand the average day for restaurants in America, we took a multidimensional look at their performance. We specifically looked at:
- Transactions: How many individual payments restaurants process.
- Ticket Size: How much patrons spend on average per transaction.
- Daily Sales Revenue: How much revenue restaurants make per day.
