    • Nation's Restaurant News points to a trend that may explain some of the weakness with restaurant traffic this year.
    • Restaurants have been pushing prices higher over the last six months, despite lower retail food costs. On the other hand, grocery stores have lowered their prices in accordance with some easing of chicken, beef, and pork costs. It's a pricing spread that consumers may have caught on to if broad traffic trends are an indicator.
    • Rising labor costs are the most obvious reason for the disparity. Restaurants expend about 30% of sales on labor costs, while groceries only spend about 14%.
