Well as anticipated, dads across the country came through in a big way and we see a really nice uptick in the sales numbers after this weekend. For our restaurants who entered Phase 2 after June 1st (orange line) we see a near vertical hop in the year-over-year sales numbers – likely driven by a combo of treating-dad-to-dinner paired with more and more restaurants coming back online (seen in the steady drop in closures).
Nice to see the lights turning back on across all of our views! Take a look for yourself below.
Stay safe, Bo
PS – 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 for the rest of the year for new clients (normally $15/month). 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!
