Consumers definitely want an equal experience for less money these days, and that will be a boon for those offering the cheaper options.
Bret Daniel, owner of the Union Inn in Schenectady, says that he's "seen an increase in coupons. Business on our specialty nights has increased."
The Union Inn's menu mainly consists of burgers and other bar fare, and though he recently increased his prices for the first time since his business opened, Daniel says people are still looking for good food at a low price.
"Instead of a $20 restaurant, people are going out for the cheaper options," he said.""
