4. Sales Performance: A plurality of on-premise operators reported that their most recent quarterly beverage sales met their plan, with a notable percentage expressing optimism that sales in 2024 will exceed expectations. In contrast, off-premise respondents were slightly less optimistic about sales performance for the year.
