Kid and Young Adult Restaurant Visits Are Down

In addition to a challenging economy, restaurant operators are also dealing with shifting customer demographics as parents decide to leave the kids at home, and young adults, ages 18 to 24, cut back on restaurant visits, according to The NPD Group, a leading market research company. NPD’s CREST, which has tracked consumer purchasing and consumption patterns at commercial restaurants since 1975, shows that in 2008, restaurant visits by parties with kids declined by three percent, and restaurant visits by young adults, the most lucrative restaurant market, dropped from 254 per capita in 2007 to 233 in 2008.
