Ohio Restaurants Expect Good Things Now, Better Next Year

Ohio operators are optimistic about foodservice trends, says ORA President and CEO John Barker

How's the restaurant business in the Buckeye State? Turns out, pretty good, according to the Ohio Restaurant Association, which recently worked with Cleveland Research Co. to survey state operators from more than 70 companies at 175-plus stores, a news release said. 

Same-store sales trends for the most recent quarter (May through July) grew an average of 2.7 percent with 2.2 percent driven by customer traffic. Sales were stronger than the previous quarter (January through March), which was up 1.5 percent.

Operators in Ohio are optimistic about trends improving and expect same-store sales to expand at a slightly stronger pace for the full year in 2018, up 3.5 percent, and up 3.6 percent in 2019.
