We're back to eating out at restaurants

Reported by MarketWatch Spending at restaurants, as measured by the Commerce Department's Retail Report, shows annualized sales rose to a seasonally adjusted 13.7% from September to January. That?s the strongest five-month stretch since December 2006, and a level only exceeded in the past 25 years in mid-1994 and late 1992. And while Millennials have continued to cut back on restaurant visits since the recession, making 33 fewer visits per person in 2014 vs. 2007, they still account for 23% of all domestic restaurant spending, estimates NPD. So how can you adapt to attract this finicky group? A few things to consider, fresh & healthy ingredients, reasonable prices, menu customization, and modern environment. Oh, and don't forget the free Wi-Fi.
