With 2014 coming to a close, we asked our data team for a review of the year in dining: what days drove the most covers, and which times were slowest for restaurants. Here’s a snapshot of how, when and where diners in the United States celebrated this year.
Our mission at OpenTable is simple: to power great dining experiences. That means giving restaurants the tools they need to succeed in managing their books, and making it easy for diners to find and book tables for every occasion.
We’re proud to partner with the best restaurants in the industry — and thanks to them, we’ve learned a few things over the years. Now, we want to share that knowledge and start new conversations within the restaurant community about what it takes to run a restaurant successfully as a business, from hiring great staff and tracking food cost to building an international restaurant empire.
