Restaurants Benefit from Black Friday

11-24-06 Increased traffic through the stores means more business for restaurants near shopping areas. All along highway 75 at the Sherman Towne Center restaurants were filled to the brim with customers.

Restaurants see Black Friday as a good foundation for their business during the holiday season. Chick-Fil-A managers estimate they'll serve 4,000 people today which translates to a 5% increase in sales. That is one of the reasons they woke up early to serve the morning crowd.
