TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2011 /CNW/ - For the first time in more than 10 years
restaurant operators from around the country and in every dining sector
(QSR, Family, Casual and Fine Dining) have provided their restaurant
operating data, allowing for the first comprehensive industry
performance report in more than a decade.
More than 600 restaurateurs representing almost 3,000 restaurants
participated in The Bottom Line Survey produced by Toronto's Kostuch
Media and FHG International (foodservice & franchise consultants) in
association with Ryerson University School of Hospitality Management.
The results of the survey have been electronically shared with more than
15,000 readers of Foodservice and Hospitality magazine and are available as an industry service to anyone who wants to
learn more about the restaurant sector.
Doug Fisher, president of FHG, said "Industry operators are hungry for
operating data in which they can analyze operations in order to enable
them to operate more effectively in a tough economic market. This type
of operating data is what educators, operators and consultants have
been clamouring for over the years. It is just this type of data, which
provides details on operations by segment, by province, by number of
seats, by square footage, by province, and by municipal location is
just what operators need to measure their performance".
Rosanna Caira, editor and publisher of Kostuch Media (publishers of Foodservice and Hospitality and Hotelier magazines) and one of the report's sponsors commented, "The number of
responses to our survey was outstanding for our first effort and we
have captured a statistically significant number of units. We hope that
over the years, the industry will come to embrace these results through
increased participation in future surveys, which will be conducted
annually in January and February, with results posted every May of the
