I've spent this morning on a number of calls and webinars discussing the #global #restaurant market and the outlook for 2020 and beyond. I thought I'd collect some thoughts on where we @Technomic see the business going.
1/
First, in North America: our midpoint scenario analysis for US #restaurants is a decline in consumer spending of 22% in 2020. Canada's outlook is a bit worse, with our midpoint expectations at -26% decline. #Delivery and #takeout has been key for operators in these markets.
2/
Latin America will be harder hit than N America; lockdowns have been significant and economies are generally weaker to begin with. We forecast the midpoint decline for #restaurants in Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Chile and Mexico will be down ~40% in spending in 2020.

#Maharashtra: Since the past over two months of #lockdown, thousands of bus, trucks, tempos and other vehicles passing near Karanji on National Highway-7 make it a point to halt at a ramshackle tin shed with plastic sheets, beside the dry and dusty road.

This is the only spot on a stretch of around 450 kms where a decent meal is available - free of cost - courtesy the services of Baba Karnail Singh Khaira, who is revered as Khaira Babaji in the region.

"This is a remote, tribal region. Behind us for nearly 150-km, and ahead for nearly 300 km, there's not a single dhaba or #restaurant... So most people prefer to halt at 'Guru ka langar' and avail of our round-the-clock services," Khaira Babaji told IANS.

Ein paar Gedanken zu den ökonomischen Effekten von Corona / #Covid19, und was die Politik jetzt tun könnte, bzw. sollte. /thread
Die Unterscheidung #Angebot und Nachfrage ist hier nicht sehr hilfreich. Ja, es betrifft erstmal die Angebotsseite der Wirtschaft, aber es ist kein Öl-Schock, und es wird sehr schnell ein Nachfrageproblem draus. /1
Denn in einer nicht-linearen Welt haben auch temporäre Phänomene permanente Folgen. Firmen die #Pleite gehen, obwohl sie ohne #Corona profitabel wären; Menschen, die nicht arbeiten können, und Gehalt/Konsum verlieren etc. /2

THE TRUE ORIGIN OF RESTAURANTS
Thread

Centuries ago, like now, there were hostels, posadas or taverns where food was served in exchange for money, as in a thermopolium in Rome (snack-bar) where we, readers of @LRB @TwitterBooks @nytimes @NewYorker @washingtonpost, would often go
After the #fall of the #Roman #Empire in these businesses food was served in shared tables and consisted of a fixed menu, according to what was already prepared. Even the nobility, like celebrities today, would frequent when traveling.
But, when did the concept and business of restaurants truly begin?
It began with Paracelsus (1493-1541), a brilliant Swiss physician who modernized medicine with rational clinical judgment and changed the way we eat in the #Western #world.
