OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index for Q2 2013

We are pleased to release the OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index for the second quarter of 2013. 

“During the second quarter of 2013, the reservation-taking industry in the U.S. was flat year-over-year,” said our own Matt Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of OpenTable. “For the second quarter in a row the San Francisco Bay Area experienced a lift, but most other major metropolitan areas that we track were essentially flat with the exception of Chicago, which continued to see a bit of a headwind during the second quarter.”

OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index

The OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index is based on data gathered from more than 9,000 reservation-taking restaurants* sampled from the OpenTable network in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Each percentage indicates a year-over-year increase or decrease in the number of guests served in these reservation-taking restaurants, as recorded by the restaurants in their reservation books. Those guests include those who honored reservations made by phone or online as well as those who walked in without a reservation.
