Opportunities for operators
- Just because they don’t like to spend doesn’t mean they aren’t eating out. Bargain Hunters are more likely than others to seek out low prices in order to eat out more often. They like to build meals out of a combination of value-price items, so having a wide selection on a value menu may win them over.
- Small plates are big. But not necessarily to share or try new flavors like other consumers. Bargain Hunters are more likely to buy them as a less expensive alternative to full-size entrees.
