Q: How Have Restaurant Preferences Changed?

Approximately 1/3 of respondents would be willing to dine at a restaurant sometime within the next month, including 17.5% who are currently willing to dine at a restaurant.


As stay-at-home restrictions are lifted, respondents plan to visit the following types of restaurants at least once within the next two months

  • Fast food restaurants: 33.2%

  • Local neighborhood restaurants 20.2%

Looking ahead to restaurants resuming dine-in service, implementing health and safety practices are critical. The top three most important health and safety precautions, according to respondents, are the following:

  1. Limit the number of guests in the restaurant

  2. Employees required to wear protective gear such as mask and gloves

  3. At least 6 feet between tables
