Forward Looking Consumer Survey 

1,500 respondents


18 - 24 Year Olds Taking Summer Off


  • RR's Intent to Eat Out Index declined slightly this month, with a sharp increase among 18 - 24 year olds who intend to eat out a "lot less" (with school letting out). Also, we see that women indicated a significant increase in their intention to eat out "a lot less" which contrasts with a significant increase in expectations by men to eat out "a lot more". 
  • While the overall promotional mix of QSR & FSR price point offers remain relatively unchanged, the average price point increased for both segments which could help explain this month's Intent to Eat Out Index decline. For now, the industry seems content to focus more on innovation with new products representing a significant 19% mix for QSR and 30% for FSR.
