Casual Living Outdoor Dining Metro Market Projections, 2014

This report originally appeared in the April 2014 print issue of Casual Living

Outdoor dining sales expected to see double digit growth, with 15% over the next five years, according to the most recent data from Casual Living and Easy Analytic Software Inc.

Casual Living market research worked with Easy Analytic Software Inc. to develop 2013 outdoor dining sales estimates and 2018 projections.

Sales figures are based on data available through October 2013 and are subject to revision. Estimates are based on information from the Department of Commerce, the International Trade Commission, sales estimates from manufacturers and retailers, Casual Living and Apartment Therapy consumer surveys and information garnered from discussions with industry executives and analysts.

All data was matched against demographic data (such as age and income) from the Bureau of the Census, the Department of Justice, National Center for Education Statistics and the Department of Labor. A series of statistical models were used to develop estimates by metro markets. Projections for 2018 are designed to forecast the changes that statistically adjust for household income, age by race and sex, group quarter population and births and deaths, along with other forecasting factors. Spending forecasts assume a national rate of inflation that does not vary from one location to another.
