The eleventh edition of Who’s Buying at Restaurants and Carry-Outs is based on unpublished data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2012 Consumer Expenditure Survey. It examines how much Americans spend on eating out by the following demographics: age, income, high-income households, household type, race and Hispanic origin, region of residence, and education. To round out the spending picture, it also presents who-are-the-best-customers analyses of the data, showing the demographics of the best and biggest customers at a glance. The report looks at spending on breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks consumed at fast-food and full-service restaurants, employer and school cafeterias, and vending machines and mobile vendors. Restaurant spending trends between 2006 and 2012 are also examined in this report.
