NY restaurant group intends to clear a way for onsite sports betting

The New York State Restaurant Association is working with a technology company to develop a model acceptable to all.

A California Department of Tax and Fee Administration study found 19% of the state's restaurants used zappers to under-report sales.

The sandwich giant says its sales are the best it’s had in years following its brand refresh and new ad campaign but the numbers show some stores are still far behind.

Industry sales growth slowed but did not decline last month, as consumers still flexed their spending muscle.

Yet same-store sales were still positive, according to Black Box, as consumers continued dining at restaurants.

A snapshot just released by the National Restaurant Association shows a business solidly in recovery mode, but with uncertainties arising because of the delta variant.

The index hit its lowest level since February as the delta variant spreads. Other data show reluctance to visit restaurants. But Black Box data remains strong.

A survey of about 5,300 small businesses reveals that the delta strain of coronavirus has landlords waiting and operators worried.

The very largest chains performed best in the pandemic-hurt year of 2020. And they’re coming out of it better, too, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
