Eateries see ArtPrize business increase


FOLLOW BODY THE FINALE ON THE BIG SCREEN AT 8:00. AND WHILE RUNNING MAYBE NEARING THE FINISH LINE, ARTPRIZE DOES RUN UNTIL SUNDAY. FOR DOWNTOWN RESTAURANTS THEY WANT TO KEEP THE EVENT’S MOMENTUM GOING AS BUSINESS KEEPS GROWING. “24 HOUR NEWS 8’S” RYAN TAKEO TACKED TO SEVERAL RESTAURANTS TODAY. RECORD NUMBERS, WHY IS THAT? Reporter: RESTAURANTS ARE MORED THIS YEAR. REMEMBER FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN SOME RESTAURANTS RAN OUT OF FOOD. THOSE DAYS ARE LONG GONE. NOW DOWNTOWN RESTAURANTS KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. IT IS OUR BUSIEST OF TIME OF THE YEAR. THEN THERE IS ARRESTED PRIZE. SANCHEZ’S BISTRO IS LEARNING FIRSTHAND. IT IS THE FIRST ARTPRIZE WORKING HERE. WE HEARD HORROR STORIES ABOUT IT. Reporter: SHE IS HOPING THAT IT GOES JUST FINE. SO ARE MOST RESTAURANTS. HELLO. LIKE TO ONE ON IONIA. THE SALES HAVE BEEN GREAT. Reporter: GREAT BREAKS DOWN LIKE THIS — THEY ARE SEEING A 10% SPIKE COMPARED TO LAST ARTPRIZE. THIS ONE UP 20%. SOME 30%. KEEP IN MIND, THE SERVICE, THE SCRAMBLE, SURGE CAN BE TAXING. NEARLY THREE-WEEK RUSH IS ONE WEEKEND AWAY FROM RELACKATION. THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT. BESIDES THAT, THERE IS NO RESERVATION. RYAN BEFORE YOU GO, HOW DOES BUSINESS COMPARE TO A REGULAR WEEK OF BUSINESS? SANCHEZ SAYING THREE TIMES THE AMOUNT OF CUSTOMERS THEY NORMALLY DO DURING THE FALL WEEK. THEY ARE SEEING ABOUT 18% UPTICK. NOW NORMALLY BUSY DAY BECAUSE OF THE BUSY SPORTS SCHEDULE. THANK YOU. WELL, TODAY, WE TALKED TO PEOPLE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHICH TOP TEN FEES VOTE FOR. SOME SAID IT WAS ACTUALLY HARDER THAN PICKING A PRESIDENT.
