Colorado Loves Going Out To Eat

While menu prices in Colorado have increased about 25% over the last year, most families are still dining out once or twice a week. KUNC reported last year the average meal ticket in Colorado was around $91. By July of 2023, that average was up to around $112.

In a recent survey, the Harvard Business Review said 50% of those surveyed said they hated cooking at home. We love letting someone else do the cooking.
