The State of Local Restaurants - Nebraska

THE STATE OF LOCAL RESTAURANTS

Nebraska


 

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 Nebraska
Nebraska is the 30th-ranked state for restaurant revenues, with seasonality on a weekly and monthly basis right on par with the national average. Nebraska eateries experience above-average number of transactions but a lower average ticket size.

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.

Restaurants in Nebraska rank 10th for the average number of transactions each day, 50th for average ticket size, and 29th for average daily revenues. All told, this makes The Cornhusker State the 30th-ranked state for restaurant performance and one of the most affordable states to #eatlocal.
