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.

KANSAS RESTAURANTS ON PROMINENT DAYS

Restaurants put a lot of focus and work into big events and holidays, but how do the most prominent days rank compared to the rest of the year and the average day? It’s interesting to note that each of the prominent days saw an upswing in ticket size, except for Valentine’s Day, which is usually thought of as a major restaurant holiday.
