The Avero Index is an indicator of year-over-year restaurant industry trends, specifically same-store sales performance. These trends encompass a group of restaurants representing different cuisines, venue types, and average checks, nationally and in the following markets: Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and Washington DC. 

February 2017 highlights:

  • On a national scale, Washington DC outperformed all other cities for the second month in a row with 3.29% year-over-year same store sales growth. Seems that the "Trump Effect" may not just be boosting the financial markets, but also keeping business high in restaurants around the Nation's capital. 
  • Los Angeles had the worst performance nationally this month with -6.20% year-over-year same store sales growth. February's heavy rains seem to have kept LA diners at home causing a significant decrease in restaurant sales. 
  • New York City restaurants had a strong growth with a 1.93% increase over last year. This growth is largely driven by strong weekday sales which increased 4.1% this month.
  • Las Vegas had a drop in year-over-year same store sales (-3.90%) because of a significant decrease in breakfast and lunch sales (-9.1%).
