CINCINNATI (AP) ¿ Frisch's Restaurants Inc., parent of the Frisch's Big Boy chain, said Tuesday its fiscal third-quarter profit rose 65 percent, helped by better results at its Golden Corral chain.
Profit for the quarter ended March 10 rose to $3.4 million, or 66 cents per share, from $2.1 million, or 40 cents per share, during the same period last year.
Revenue rose 2 percent to $67.7 million from $66.6 million.
The company said new ad campaigns for its Big Boy and Golden Corral restaurants boosted customer traffic, as did more favorable food costs.A litigation settlement also helped results. In March, Frisch said it would receive $890,000 pretax in the quarter, related to a case against a general contractor that built a Golden Corral Restaurant in 2001.
