Here with our weekly update because we know our sales numbers are exactly the results everyone has been waiting for today.
Looking back at the numbers we’ve typically seen a proportional drop in sales relative to number of Covid cases – especially regionally. Even though we aren’t on a year-over-year sales rocket ship at the moment, and we are seeing some dips across the Midwest and in our Full Service segment, I am relieved that things are relatively steady in spite of the rising case load across the country. Possible this is driven at least in part by folks choosing to dine out as they eat their election related feelings!
In all seriousness, hope you are staying well, staying safe and had a chance to vote!
As always, find our full breakdown below.
P.S. For those following along on these notes, but are not a MarginEdge client, we would love to include your numbers in our data set and continue to build out the value of the reporting. We are giving our MarginEdge Lite product for free. This little tool connects your POS to accounting system and creates journal entries – hopefully time saving for you while increasing our sample size as we track recovery across our network. Obviously no obligation or commitment, just an offer for those interested!
