There is certainly no shortage of places to eat in Liverpool these days. Consumers can take their pick from an impressive range of establishments. Indeed, the popularity of these restaurants may be on the rise.
It seems Britons cannot get enough of dining out. According to research conducted by Beavis Morgan, the restaurant trade has blossomed over the last three decades. It revealed that the UK’s eating out spending as a percentage of total spent on food has doubled over this period.
The organisation suggested that the total amount spent on such dining will reach £52 billion by the end of 2012. This would be around a third of the average consumer spend on food.
Beavis Morgan went on to note that despite the recession, consumer are dining out more frequently than they did a year ago. However, it added that more people are looking for budget dining experiences.
For this reason, discounting and vouchers have become a big part of UK dining culture. Indeed, 84 per cent of the eateries it polled had discounted over the last year.
Matthew Burge, partner at Beavis Morgan, remarked: “With this rise in eating out spending, there is a strategic opportunity for good business ideas in the restaurant market. We are seeing an increased demand for new, innovative ways to market establishments and engage with customers to drive footfall.”
