Restaurants' business week is shrinking as pandemic effects linger, study finds

The average U.S. restaurant is open 6.4 fewer hours a week because of the inability to find workers, according to a study from Datassential.

The chain will acquire the restaurants early next year as its corporate locations continue to outperform franchisees.

The candles are part of the steakhouse chain’s new online merch store, where superfans can buy shirts, hats and other items.

The chain’s traffic fell slightly in the second quarter, which executives said is typical for summer. The decline came entirely on the to-go side of the business.

On-premise visits have returned to 2019 levels, and executives believe there’s room for more.

People have flocked back to steak chains over the past year, according to Placer.ai. And the category leader stands apart from the herd.

Roadhouse Pay allows guests to close out at their own pace using a tablet. The chain said it has improved the dining experience and boosted tips.

The stores in Georgia and South Carolina were owned by longtime operator Texas Roadhouse Management.

The chain is focusing on building traffic and staff while doing its best to manage rising costs.
