Open all hours

June 2018

An untapped £6.75bn revenue opportunity for the UK hospitality and leisure sector.

UK working patterns have undergone a revolution. Over half, 56%, work extended hours, part time, flexibly or on a shift pattern. People need to pursue their leisure and relaxation at different hours. Our calculations reveal the total potential out-of-hours opportunity for the sector: extra revenue of some £6.75bn.

Although 42% of the businesses we surveyed have had recent requests for services beyond their current opening hours, only 12% of businesses have changed their opening hours in response to customer demand over the past year. Have you overlooked this unmet potential?
