Already, there's anecdotal evidence from local media reports that bars and restaurants saw a traffic boost from the World Cup. Late last month, Wunderlich Securities analysts wrote that strong viewership of the match-ups boded well for Buffalo Wild Wings'same-store sales during the second and third quarter.
Elsewhere in the report, news for restaurants was mixed. In the Philadelphia district, family-run restaurants, especially in smaller markets, "are often still struggling to stay in operation." Over in Louisville, Kentucky, there were reports of more restaurant openings than closings while the Kansas City region saw a slight increase in restaurant sales.
