    • The sluggish trend continues in the restaurant sector with same-store sales down 0.6% in August, according to the latest read from Black Box Intelligence.
    • Same-store traffic was 2.7% lower Y/Y during the month to improve on the 3.9% drop recorded in July. Average guest check across the industry was up 2.3% to help offset for some of the loss of customers.
    • Another weak month in the Southwest (sales -5%, traffic -7%) doesn't bode well for chains with a high concentration of stores in Texas.
    • Though the broad read from analysts is that consumer spending is still tight in the U.S., there are also some concerns that restaurant chains are having trouble building brand loyalty with millennials giving their business to independent eateries.
