Food sales outperform beverage

Beverage sales however have declined year on year for the quarter, with a decrease of $2,000. This trend began in March 2022 when beverage sales fell below the previous year’s level. The only exception to this trend was in July when we saw a slight increase on the prior year.

Gaming performance is sporadic

Gaming turnover is up year on year, with weekly turnover totals increasing 3% in Q124 from the prior year.

Marketing and entertainment are also significantly higher, representative of the return to full trading in 2023 and the need to attract and entertain patrons.

The hospitality industry is no stranger to monthly performance fluctuations. Our report delves into the insights gleaned from these changes, shedding light on the underlying trends that might otherwise go unnoticed. Armed with this knowledge, businesses can make informed decisions, adapt strategies, and stay ahead of the curve.

In this review of the first financial quarter, which spans from July to September 2023, we analyse the key performance metrics and compare them to the same quarter in 2022.
