Casual restaurant chains including Olive Garden and Cheesecake Factory may have to work harder to increase sales this year, as consumers coping with a rise in payroll taxes decide between dinner and a movie instead of doing both, some analysts say. "I don’t think you’re going to see anybody go out of business because of this, but you will see sales moderation and margin contraction," said analyst Peter Saleh.
Will casual chains bear the brunt of the increased payroll tax?
