The National Restaurant Association said the outlook for the restaurant industry remained positive for the months ahead, with its Restaurant Performance Index (RPI) for May 2012 remaining above 100. Restaurant operators reported a slight uptick in current capital spending, which includes commercial appliances. The May report also showed that more operators are planning for capital spending in the next six months.

The RPI was 101.4 in May, down 0.2% from April's 101.6. But May was still the seventh consecutive month above 100, which signifies expansion in the industry indicators in the index. The RPI has two components: the Current Situation Index and the Expectations Index.

Restaurant operators reported a slight uptick in current capital spending, which includes commercial appliances. The May report shows 46% of operators said they made a capital expenditure for equipment, expansion, or remodeling in the last three months, up slightly from 44% for this indicator in the April 2012 report. Along with a positive sales outlook, restaurant operators continue to plan for capital spending in the coming months. The May 2012 report said 55% of restaurant operators plan to make a capital expenditure for equipment, expansion, or remodeling in the next six months, up from 52% in the April report.
