The Location Comparison report compares certain operation values on the P&L report from two or more restaurant locations. This report allows the user to view various labor and sales comparisons for the current day, prior day, and the same day for the year prior. Percentages highlighted yellow show whether a location is below average while a non-highlighted number shows that a location met their designated percentage goals.
