FORWARD LOOKING CONSUMER SURVEY (1,500 RESPONDENTS)

SLOWING INTENT = LESS INCOME & DISCOUNTS

  • RR’s Intent to Eat Out Index (our survey of 1,500 consumers’ plans to eat-out over the next month) increased +4.5% y/y.
  • However, on a sequential month/month basis, the Index declined -1.5% and represented the lowest level since April’s rebound.
  • This is likely a function of the end of stimulus #1 while industry players continue to push promotional prices higher (especially QSR which is substantially elevated from the 2018 & 2019 highs).
  • The stress is most notable among the 18-24 year old demo (with the highest unemployment rate) & the 55-64 year olds who maybe more price sensitive.
