BDO Restaurant and Bars Report Summer 2017

08 September 2017

Brian Murphy, Managing Partner |

Welcome to our Restaurants and Bars report which provides you with an insight on the latest trends and issues in the industry.

Summer 2017

We entered 2017 reflecting on the shocking election in the UK and further afield, thinking about challenges in the P&L ahead, and the headwinds seem to be blowing stronger as our government looks less secure, our negotiations with the EU less focused, and our top line less certain. You could say that uncertainty is the new normal.

And whilst there will be significant challenges for all operators, there will also be real opportunities for those who are well focused, funded and can deliver consistently. In this edition, we take a look at:

  • Boardroom agenda 
  • The trading environment
  • M&A deal activity 
  • Collaborating with retailers 
  • True customer loyalty 

We hope you find our hub and the Summer edition of our Restaurants and Bars report useful, interesting and insightful. If you would like to discuss the report further or provide feedback, please do get in touch with us.
