Excellent May Trading for S4Labour Customers

Posted by - Last updated: Monday June 04th 2018
May was an excellent month for the UK hospitality industry with like for like sales across the industry up 5% on 2017 levels, our latest research has found. 

Analysis of over 100 organisations using our S4Labour scheduling and HR software revealed that strong drink sales – likely bolstered by fine weather and the Royal Wedding effect – were the primary factor in the overall good performance. 

Food-led venues enjoyed an 8.5% increase in drink trade, while wet-focused sites were up 7.7% on average. 

Operators also saw a rise in food revenues – albeit a small one – with an overall 0.1% increase recorded across all businesses surveyed and dry-led sites faring slightly better in this regard. 

June sees the start of the World Cup and many in hospitality will be anticipating a continuation of May’s good results for the industry (even if not for the England team). 

By identifying and correcting times of sub-optimal staffing, S4Labour helps its clients increase sales and improve service, as well as reduce labour costs. Why not book a demo today?
