The Restaurant Association sought member feedback on the impact of Covid-19 in a series of short surveys.
This survey was conducted on 18 August, 2020.
As the country headed back into Alert Level 3 in Auckland and Alert Level 2 outside of Auckland, this survey sought feedback on the current impact of the level changes to member businesses.
- 88 per cent of Auckland members and 49 per cent of members outside of Auckland indicated that turnover was significantly lower compared to the same time last year.
- Of those Auckland respondents that indicated that their sales were lower (99 per cent of respondents), on average they were 64% lower than the same time last year.
- In Auckland 52 per cent indicated that they were trading at between 0 – 10% of typical customer levels.
“We are doing all we can to make sales, market to help with sales. Feeling at a loss of what else we can do. Too big a risk to change our offerings, take a loan out, increase our opening hours, all have costs and the unknown is too dangerous to make these decisions on!”
