Good Times’ Sales Are Rocking – Up 19%
GOLDEN, Colo. -- September 3, 2013
Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq:GTIM) today announced its same store sales
increased 18.7% for the month of August, its fifth consecutive month of
double-digit increases. The Company said that it is on track for its
thirteenth consecutive quarter of same store sales increases and that based on
the current trend, it expects to finish its fiscal 2013 with a double-digit
increase in same store sales for the year.
“We are thrilled with our results and at the risk of sounding like a broken
record, I can’t overstate the significance of the fact that our sales are
being driven by the results of multiple initiatives that are aligned around
our brand position – a fresh, new marketing campaign telling our all natural
`story of no' for our burgers and chicken categories (no hormones, no
antibiotics, no steroids, vegetarian fed, humanely raised) plus flavorful
regional ingredients such as our new Hatch Valley New Mexico green chile menu
and breakfast burritos, a high level of execution by our operations team and
early stage exterior reimaging of older restaurants,” said Boyd Hoback,
President & CEO.
The Company also again reported that it expects to accelerate the pace of
remodeling and reimaging of its older Good Times restaurants and increase the
number of Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants in the development pipeline.
Hoback added, “With increasing cash flow from operations and over $6.5 million
of cash and no debt on our balance sheet, we are on track with our business
plan to maintain our momentum in Good Times and increase the number of Bad
Daddy’s restaurants we are developing. Our reimaging projects are showing
promising sales results as well as updating our overall brand image in the
market and we are excited about the potential high return on investment model
that Bad Daddy’s has shown in the existing restaurants. We believe Bad Daddy’s
will be a platform for robust company-owned and franchised growth.”
