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. 

March 2017 highlights:

  • On a national scale, Chicago outperformed all other cities with 4.94% year-over-year same store sales growth.
  • New York City had the worst performance nationally this month with -3.94% year-over-year same store sales growth. Here at Avero we attribute this to a particularly rainy and cold March that kept diners at home particularly holding them back from going out for Breakfast/Lunch. 
  • Las Vegas had an increase in year-over-year same store sales of 4.20% with particularly strong weekday sales. Our Avero Las Vegas experts believe this is due to a surge in guests visiting the city for Spring Break and diners heading out to watch March Madness games.
