Of course, these numbers are quantitative and represent overall trends. But what are individual executives saying about the health of the industry? We’ve got that perspective, too, in this month’s cover story. Hospitality Technology’s Editorial Advisory Board speaks frankly about the pace of recovery. On a scale of 1 to 10 (highest), the restaurant executives on our board give their industry an overall health score of 6 (edging out the average score of 5.25 given by hotel executives). Meanwhile, the National Restaurant Association is predicting a 3.6% increase in sales this year over 2010.
All of these positives lead us at Hospitality Technology to join the ranks of the cautiously optimistic and we look forward to more gains in the year ahead.
