The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Business -

◆ 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.
