[Podcast] The Future Of Casual Dining? Asian Consumers

May 9, 2016 Author: Roy Eduardo Kokoyachuk

First quarter 2016 revealed the vulnerability of the casual dining industry. The bar-and-grill segment, typically a strong player, struggled, as the 4.1-percent decline in same-store sales at Chili’s last quarter showed us.
