In September 2022, more than 20,000 diners in the U.S. and Canada weighed in on their holiday dining plans. OpenTable surveyed people to learn whether people intend to dine out more often, visit different restaurants, or try new dining experiences.

Use this data to strategize the season and create special holiday promotions that will delight regulars, attract first-timers, and bring them all back again throughout 2023.

We hope these insights—as well as the daily updated data on our State of the Industry hub—give you the information you need to help your business thrive.
