OpenTable Releases Restaurant Industry Index for Q3 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenTable, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPEN), the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations, today released the OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index for the third quarter of 2013.

"The San Francisco Bay Area reservation-taking restaurant industry experienced a lift for the third quarter in a row, while most other major metropolitan areas that we track were essentially flat," said Duncan Robertson, Chief Financial Officer of OpenTable.  "The anomalous spike in Philadelphia was attributed to the timing of restaurant weeks which occurred in September rather than October this year." 

OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index
The OpenTable Restaurant Industry Index is based on data gathered from more than 10,000 reservation-taking restaurants* sampled from the OpenTable network in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  Each percentage indicates a year-over-year increase or decrease in the number of guests served in these reservation-taking restaurants, as recorded by the restaurants in their reservation books. Those guests include those who honored reservations made by phone or online as well as those who walked in without a reservation.
