January starts the year off with a bang for DMV restaurants
December left DMV restaurants off in a great spot and January sales took that momentum and ran with it! After months of slow but steady growth, 2023 sales are off to an incredible start.
Full Service's year-over-year monthly sales ended up with a monstrous 42% growth for January (yes, you read that right - 42%!). Fast Casual was not far behind, showing 22% growth. We're hopeful that this growth continues next month, as this time last year also saw some excellent numbers.
Across a 7-day moving average, Full Service really outdid itself, ending on a high at 38%. Throughout the month, Full Service sales performed really well, peaking at 67% during the week of January 6th. Fast Casual followed a similar trend, peaking mid-month at 33% before ending at 18%.
Overall sales ended very positive yet again at 35% for the last week of January.
In-house delivery sales increased alongside overall sales last month for both the DMV (at 13%) and nation-wide (at 14%).
This has been a great start to the year for DMV restaurants and we're excited and hopeful to see this trend continue next month. See you in March!
