You Won't Find Americans in the Kitchen this Holiday Season

You Won't Find Americans in the Kitchen this Holiday Season

77% of Americans will be leaving the cooking to someone else this holiday season, according to the latest NRA survey.

The study found 57% of consumers said they plan to go out to eat at a restaurant, while 50% plan to order takeout or delivery for a gathering at home during the holidays. One in four consumers plan to do both. Respondents gave further insight to their holiday eating plans:

When asked about why they plan to include restaurant meals in their holiday plans:

  • 88% said dining out or ordering a meal from a restaurant is a good way to support businesses in their community during the holidays.
  • 82% said letting restaurants do the cooking is easy and reduces their stress.
  • 78% said a restaurant gives them an opportunity to socialize with family and/or friends and is a better use of their time than cooking and cleaning up.

When choosing the restaurant, convenience and loyalty were top of mind for most consumers.

  • A restaurant close to home was the top pick for 94% of consumers going out to eat and 91% planning to order out.
  • 81% of diners plan to dine in a restaurant they’ve often visited during the holidays, while 79% of diners will order out from one. 

Inflation is impacting consumer decision-making during the holidays, making them more interested in restaurants where they can find a deal or specials.

  • 89% of consumers who plan to dine in a restaurant and the same number who plan to order out will consider deals or specials to pick the restaurant.
  • 60% of customers eating out and 66% of those planning takeout are making their choices based on marketing emails from restaurants. Even fewer are being swayed by social media—just 58% of people planning to eat out and 65% of those planning delivery or takeout say social media marketing will be a determining factor in their choice of restaurant.
