  • Analyses at 12 weeks are based on n=888 restaurant weeks; analyses at 6 months based on n=820 restaurant periods.

  • Percentages are the exponentiated coefficients of change in log-transformed numbers of beverages sold per customer and are calculated from: Embedded Image  (see online supplementary appendix 3 for more details).

  • *Robust standard errors.

  • †Robust clustered standard errors adjusted for seasonality and clustering.

  • SSBs, sugar-sweetened beverages.
