Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM) today announced that Bad Daddy’s
Franchise Development LLC (“BDFD”) has agreements for three new Bad Daddy’s
Burger Bar restaurants that will be developed in North Carolina and South
Carolina. Good Times owns 48% of BDFD and said that two of the restaurants
will be developed by Bad Daddy’s International, LLC, the majority owner of
BDFD, in Raleigh and Winston-Salem, North Carolina and the third will be
developed by CPR Burgers, LLC in Greenville, South Carolina as BDFD’s first

Commenting on the new restaurants, Boyd Hoback, CEO of Good Times and BDFD
said, “We are excited to have our first Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar franchisee in
the fold as we continue to refine and build what we believe are best-in-class
operating systems and a platform for accelerated franchise growth later this
year. Frank Scibelli and Dennis Thompson are continuing to build restaurants
in North Carolina and we will do the same in Colorado, which will give us a
good platform to support franchise growth in key markets across the country.
Our goal is to maintain a compelling concept that can continue to deliver
industry-leading unit economics for experienced, multi-unit franchisees as we
grow. We anticipate announcing the signing of our first Colorado sites soon.”

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is a full-service, upscale, “small box” restaurant
