Revolution’s sales doubled by Eat Out
◆ Revolution Bars Group has credited the Eat Out to Help Out scheme for nearly doubling its MondayWednesday sales in August, writes Rhiannon Curry.
Overall trading since the company reopened its bars on July 6 had been ahead of the board’s expectations, it said, with sales figures at 72.5pc of last year.
But Monday to Wednesday trading in August in particular boomed thanks to the discount scheme. “It has been a big success in the last four weeks, driving Monday to Wednesday comparable venue sales to 188.4pc of last year,” the company said.
Revolution’s own forecasts had suggested that venues would only achieve around 55pc of normal sales in August.
