A slight sales bump in the road to recovery.
We knew that the road back to normal was going to a bumpy ride — with changes in guidance, supply chain disruption, variable vaccination rates and labor shortages all pushing and pulling on these trend lines as restaurants begin ramping back up. While Minneapolis took a dip in April it’s still great to see the numbers within 8% of the national numbers and within line of sight to the breakeven line, finishing the month at -10.3% year-over-two-year.
While April was a bump in the road to revenue recovery, we hope that next month brings stabilizing labor and supply chain, widespread vaccination, pent up demand and packed dining rooms as summer officially arrives to the area.
