Working Lunch: What restaurant operators should watch for in the 2020 elections

Also, new polling data may impact the conversation on tipping

2020 is here, and with it a presidential election — but it’s the down-ticket races that may impact restaurants the most. The team from Align Public Strategies discusses the political landscape and what operators can expect this year.

Meanwhile, new polling data suggests that while Millennials tend to eat out more than other generations, they also tend to tip significantly less. The team discusses possible social and cultural implications at work here, and whether they could impact the conversation on tipping.

The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
