Data from S4labour shows that hospitality sales during April increased by 3.7% on 2019 levels (pre-Covid-19).

Dry-led sales experienced the most growth with a 7% rise on 2019 levels; wet-led sales still grew but by a smaller 1%.

Sites outside of London were up 3.7% in sales last month, whilst London sites’ sales increased by a similar 3.5%.

Richard Hartley, S4labour’s Chief Innovation Officer, said: “The overall increase in April’s sales will have been a small positive for some food focused businesses. However, the ongoing difficulties surrounding recruitment is proving to be extremely challenging for the sector, and potentially stinting sales growth for some businesses.”
