The Restaurant Impact Report

An in depth look at the role restaurants play in local economies, wellbeing and community

 

Restaurants do so much more than cook delicious food. They help shape communities and boost local economies, and can serve as a catalyst to reinvigorate entire towns or neighbourhoods. They’re a critical third space, creating a place for people to gather and build bonds beyond the home and office. They are vehicles for pleasure, built on ideas of care and hospitality.

 

To underscore this importance, OpenTable is proud to present its inaugural Restaurant Impact Report, exploring the role restaurants play in local economies, wellbeing and community.

 

Below, find full findings and also source inspiration with OpenTable’s Neighbourhood Gem guides to help support your local restaurants.
