Issue 16-85: Food Services and Drinking Places

April 29, 2016

Food Services and Drinking Places

February receipts at food services and drinking places in B.C. were down 0.9% (seasonally adjusted), following two months of solid gains. Despite the decline in February, sales were substantially higher than in the same month last year (+6.3%).

For Canada as a whole, revenues were relatively unchanged (-0.1%) as slight gains in limited-service eating places (+0.5%) offset slips in other types of establishments.
