Slovaks getting into the dining-out habit

SLOVAKS are increasingly warming to the habit of eating out, according to a new study of national dining behaviour entitled Eating Habits 2006 prepared by GfK Slovakia.

SLOVAKS are increasingly warming to the habit of eating out, according to a new study of national dining behaviour entitled Eating Habits 2006 prepared by GfK Slovakia.

One third of Slovaks eat in a restaurant at least once every two to three months. Working people between the ages of 20 and 39 are most likely to visit such outlets, according to a GfK Slovakia press release sent to The Slovak Spectator.

A considerable share of restaurant visitors are single people with higher incomes, dining for pleasure with friends or business partners as well as to avoid having to cook.

Other restaurant-goers include people who are drawn by the cheaper lunch menus.

The number of people visiting restaurants has risen 20 percent from 2003.

Fast foods outlets, including Asian restaurants, pizza parlours and pancake kiosks, provide quick meals to more than half of the Slovak population at least occasionally, especially to people under 29 years of age.

One in every three Slovaks eats in a cafeteria at least once a week.

Kiosks are another type of food outlet that almost one in five Slovaks uses at least once a week. Men are much more frequent customers of kiosks than women.
