Breakfast Average Check

Is everyone watching their numbers? One of the largest
Co-Ops in the country showed a $.39 decrease in breakfast
average check for the first week of February with a 3.1%
increase in breakfast sales and a 10.9% increase in TCs.

Of course these are numbers provided by the region so
the decline in the average check could be worse or your
mileage may vary.

If the new catch phrase is "Customer Recovery" that fall
in the average check might show there are some customers
you just can't afford to recover.
