Restaurant Sales in B.C are lagging behind the rest of the country.
Stats Can reports revenues in B.C’s food sector jumped .3 per cent in March down from the national average which rose 1.3 per cent.
The President of the B.C Restaurant and Food Services Association Ian Tostenson says, there are several reasons.
“I think we are starting to see a little bit of a topping here. I think there is some uncertainty in the marketplace in British Columbia. Certainly from a disposable income point of view people may be pulling back a little bit. We always had the highest growth in the restaurant sector the last five or six years.”
The largest increase was in Ontario and Alberta, up 2 per cent.
