The market researchers of the US company Technomic wanted to know how the news of the spread of the corona virus affects the Americans' going out behaviour over a longer period of time. They specifically asked US consumers who ate less out because of the virus. The results are not encouraging.
This aligns with fear that states and counties are reopening too quickly. From May 28 to June 2, 62% of consumers were afraid of a rushed reopening. This jumped to 66% among consumers surveyed June 26 to July 6.Several hundred American consumers were asked at regular intervals for the survey by the food service market research company Technomic. All respondents had previously stated that they had already adjusted their going out behavior in restaurants due to the Covid19 crisis. The question they were then asked was: "How long do you anticipate news of the spread of the coronavirus to impact your dining out behaviors?"
