While the unpegged Euro to CHF and food tourism continues to influence the Swiss hospitality industry, this article ‘The Swiss eat in more than they eat out’’ from the Daily News reinforces our mission and confirms the need for more innovative food concepts. The numbers from GastroSuisse clarifies that change is needed in the catering industry: People are either opting to dine out less or are simply spending less money when they do go out.
Food spending is still relatively stable, with only decrease of 1.9% compared to 2013. However, expenditure on beverages declined by 400 million Swiss Francs. Since the Euro was unpegged by the Swiss National Bank earlier this year, it was clear that there would be repercussions on many industries, and the ‘’supply costs of the sector plummeted in one swoop’’. The industry had a ‘’considerable respect before the summer season’’ said Gastro-Suisse President Platzer. Additionally, the restaurant owners are faced with the challenge of having to deal with the phenomenon of gastronomic tourism. The exorbitant prices of Swiss fine dining are encouraging foodies to seek culinary alternatives in neighbouring countries.
