The National Restaurant Association predicts that 20% of Americans will order takeout or delivery from a restaurant this Halloween, and 16% will go out to celebrate at a bar or restaurant. NRA recently surveyed about 1,000 American adults about their plans for Halloween.

This year, Halloween falls on a Monday, which is the least popular day to dine out, and that might bring in some unexpected traffic, says NRA’s Hudson Riehle. NRA’s research also revealed:

  • 32% said they will look for happy hour or other pricing specials.
  • 22% will pick establishments that are costume-friendly or have competitions.
  • 7% say restaurants with Halloween-themed items and decorations are their top choices.

It’s not too late to drive more foot traffic into your restaurant on Halloween. Here’s some inspiration.
