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. 

December 2016 highlights:

  • On a national scale, San Fransisco outperformed all other cities with same-store sales growth of 13.35%, while Chicago was the only city that had negative growth (-1.16%).
  • New York City restaurants had their best month since January 2016, which seems largely driven by strong Midtown sales (5.9%). 
  • Las Vegas had significantly high weekend sales (6.3%), likely because Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day all fell on weekends.
