Connect with guests this holiday season

More than 23,000 diners told us how they’re planning to dine out for the holidays, what they’re craving most, and what they’d like to see in the new year.

As we enter the busiest season for restaurants, we asked people how they’re dining out and looking to celebrate the holidays. They want truly memorable experiences, whether in a restaurant or from the comfort of their home.

Meeting increased demand while dealing with staffing shortages, supply issues, and regulations requires efficient operations. Tapping into diner insights helps restaurants make decisions about how to have the biggest impact, plan ahead, and make sure seats are full.

In October 2021, over 23,000 diners across the U.S. and Canada shared what they want and how they plan to celebrate the holidays.
