Knowing Millennials


At the beginning of 2015, we released our annual Top Trends; and we assessed the number one contributing factor to the restaurant industry this year to be Millennials. We know that Millennials are trendsetters; but studies are showing they are also picky and frugal. This round of of articles examines what is being called "The Cheapest Generation" and how that effects our economy. There's been an index devoted to how this, one of the largest generations, has the power to effect extensive change in various industries (see The Millennial Disruption Index).
