I need a method to track sales by venue and item. The owner wants to see how much income each venue produces and what the top sellers are in each. It doesn't seem like an odd thing to ask, but am finding it difficult to set up. I first thought to set each venue up as a sales account but found no way to assign the sale to separate accounts. Then thought to use classes, but can't set up the sales receipt template with classes as the default. Then was told I need to set up each item multiple times to create a separate item for each venue even if it is the same actual item. So if I sell Item A in 10 venues, then I have to set up that individual item 10 times. That seems like a crazy amount of unnecessary work. Is there not another way?
I see the need of having all your sales tracked efficiently per item and venue.

No, I have not figured this out. I have never used outside apps on my Mac and don't know how to do it. I am astonished that with all of QBDT capabilities, you have not figured out a way to do this. It seems like such a basic business inquiry that all businesses would want to do.
