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 D.C. 

October 2016 Highlights:

  • On the national level, YOY same store sales were slightly down (-0.2%). This pattern seems to be following national standards of lower spending due to the uncertainty surrounding the 2016 presidential election
  • In New York, negative same store sales for October (-1.0%) seem to be largely driven by a large drop in weekday sales (-2.7%).
  • In Las Vegas, higher than national YOY same store sales (0.8%) seem to be largely driven by an increase in low spenders (<$40 average check).
  • Starting this month, we are also including an index on Washington D.C.
