Hospitality Reports Modest Spending Boost | Financial Times

Footfall to UK pubs and restaurants recovered to just one-fifth of pre-coronavirus levels after reopening on July 4, separate high-frequency mobile phone location data show.

Saturday’s reopening of pubs and restaurants resulted in only a small increase in visits to their premises, data from Huq Industries show. The company uses geo-location data from apps to measure visits to 23,035 restaurants, pubs and fast-food outlets in the UK with a two-day lag.

The data include activity of staff and delivery drivers at hospitality premises, and have been trending slightly upwards since June as restaurants and fast-food outlets gradually increased takeaway services.
