Over the past 30 years, the average family has dramatically increased the number of meals that they eat at restaurants. The percentage of the family's food budget spent on restaurant meals steadily climbed. Just 10 percent of the food budget was spent on restaurant meals in 1970, and 15 percent in 1980. That percentage more than doubled in 1990, to 35 percent, and rose again in 2000 to 50 percent.
The places people had their restaurant meals also changed during that 30-year period. In 1970, families had the same number of meals at fast food and sit-down restaurants. In 1980, families consumed slightly more frequently at sit-down restaurants. However, since 1990, fast food restaurants had served more meals to the families than the sit-down restaurants. Most of the restaurant meals from 2000 were eaten at fast food restaurants. If this pattern continues, eventually the number of meals that families have at fast food restaurants could double the number of meals they have at sit-down restaurants.
