Spanish or English? Language impacts how you eat out

Spanish or English? Language impacts how you eat out

When do you go out to eat? It depends if you speak English or Spanish a new study shows.

Spanish-speaking Latinos are much more likely to depend on restaurants for morning meals and snacks than English-speaking Latinos and non-Hispanics. Among restaurant visits made by Spanish-speaking Latinos, 31 percent occur at the morning meal and 22 percent occur at the afternoon or evening snack daypart. Meanwhile, for both non-Hispanics and English-speaking Hispanics, 18 percent of visits occur at the morning meal and 15 percent occur at the afternoon or evening snack.

When visiting restaurants, Hispanics are much more likely to have children with them than non-Hispanics. NPD finds that more than half of restaurant visits from Spanish-dominant Hispanics and a third of visits from English-speaking Hispanics include parties with children. In contrast, just 29 percent of visits by non-Hispanics include parties with children.
