Around 2 million Peruvians are expected to eat out over the Independence Day holidays this weekend.
According to a recent survey prepared by Gfk, and quoted in El Comercio, out of 15 million economically active Peruvians, 12 percent plan on going out for lunch, 6 percent on going out for dinner, and 3 percent on going out for breakfast.
Hernan Chaparro, general manager of GfK, said that some Peruvians might go out two or three times, but that on average 12 percent of the country’s economically active population would eat out over the weekend.
Therefore, he said, between 1.8 million and 2 million Peruvians will visit restaurants and food fairs over the Independence Day holidays.
Furthermore, around 1.72 million Peruvians are expected to travel inside the country over the weekend, leading to about $167 million in revenue, according to Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism Jose Luis Silva.
