Restaurants across Brazil registered a later turnout than usual on this election Sunday because of the long lines voters faced to vote, according to Abrasel (Brazilian Association of Bars and Restaurants).

According to Paulo Solmucci, president of the entity, even with the delay in the arrival of customers, the good performance was not affected. States such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro told Abrasel that the election encouraged people to eat out. In Belo Horizonte, the perception was that revenue doubled compared to voting day in 2018.

Still according to Solmucci, there were small exceptions. He claims that Ceará had a 60% drop in revenue compared to a normal Sunday. In Amazonas, the performance was 40% lower.

“100% of the seats said they were in very high harmony. Even people who voted for different candidates were at the same table chatting. Within Abrasel, we don’t have a problem report, which surprised me, because we were a little tense about to that”, says Solmucci.
