Whopping spend amid Matildas fever
Aussies splurged an extra $68m on hospitality amid the Matildas’ meteoric rise and World Cup mania gripping the nation, new figures reveal.
Despite consumers facing a cost-of-living crunch, shoppers shunned the supermarket checkout and instead headed out to pubs and clubs, ate out at cafes and restaurants, and ordered more takeaway, pushing up spending on hospitality to a record $5.42bn.
The figures were revealed in fresh retail turnover data which showed Australians went on an unexpected spending spree in July.
The most beautiful restaurants from the Eat Drink Design Awards shortlist
There are few things as simple, yet pleasurable as dining out. Whether gathered with a large group of friends or tucked away into a quiet corner with a partner, the joy of a delicious meal shared with a loved one never gets old. It’s especially exciting when paired with a new venue. While hundreds of eateries pop up around Australia each year, there are some that instantly stand out from the pack, filling up reservations and drawing instant accolades for their menus and expertly crafted wine lists. Even though many factors contribute to the success of a restaurant, one of the main elements lies undoubtedly in its design.
The Three ‘E’s’ of Restaurant Hospitality
Hurricane Grill & Wings is a 28-year young brand that offers our guests an escape from the daily grind in a coastal setting that offers everyone the ability to kick back, relax, and enjoy great food and cocktails. We recently celebrated our 25th anniversary (a bit late due to the pandemic) by bringing back some original menu items, cocktails, music, and party atmosphere of the 90s. Going retro for a few weeks was a great way to celebrate the Big 2-5 with our guests.
At Hurricane Grill and Wings, we are known for our sauces—36 sauces and rubs, to be exact, all offering the guest a huge variety of flavor profiles. While typically applied to wings and tenders, our guests apply these flavors to virtually everything on the menu, especially our 37th “sauce.” This special sauce is not marketed, merchandised, or sampled at the table. The secret sauce I am referring to is a critical part of our DNA. We call this sauce the three E’s—Experience, Engagement, and Energy.
