The holiday season is a great time to reexamine the previous year and make plans for the new one. We at Restaurant.com know that the restaurant industry has undergone many recent changes amid stagnant industry growth, with increases in competition, new technology and emerging culinary trends. We’re glad that you have chosen Restaurant.com to guide you through these changes and hope our partnership will bring you success for years to come. While projections by marketing research firm The NPD Group predict only a 1 percent growth in traffic and 3 percent increase in sales for the entirety of 2013, local restaurants can still position themselves to meet the demands of key demographics and new customers.
We thank you for joining us in helping diners discover new restaurants and enjoy time with family and friends. Thanks to you and thousands of other restaurant partners, Restaurant.com guides diners to a cuisine type of their choosing, catering to almost any budget or schedule imaginable. There’s a lot to look forward to in 2014, and we wish you success as you end 2013, hopefully gathering momentum for a big run into the New Year. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from Restaurant.com.
