"As we move closer to our CDP closing, which remains subject to shareholder approval and other closing conditions, we are very pleased to see our business grow stronger,” said Steve Wagenheim, President and Chief Executive Officer of Granite City. “We have spent a great deal of time working to strengthen the value of the Granite City concept to help bring customers back into our stores. Not only have we succeeded on that front, but we have done so while building a very efficient operation. We are now beginning to see what the added revenue can mean for our overall operations and cash flow. The organization has a great deal of momentum and we hope that our bottle beer line along with the ability to buy a Granite City beer in various other venues will enhance the brand and momentum even further. We look forward to putting Granite City back on a steady growth path."
