Buffalo Wild Wings, Inc. (NASDAQ: BWLD), announced today financial results for the third quarter ended September 25, 2011. Highlights for the third quarter versus the same period a year ago were:

Sally Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Demand for the Buffalo Wild Wings brand is apparent in our strong same-store sales for the third quarter, with an increase of 5.7% at company-owned restaurants and 4.2% at franchised locations. Unit growth and strong sales in our new and existing restaurants combined to achieve a substantial increase in revenue of 30.7%. We leveraged this revenue growth to accomplish net earnings growth of over 32%, providing our shareholders with earnings per diluted share of $0.61.”

Total revenue increased 30.7% to $197.8 million in the third quarter compared to $151.3 million in the third quarter of 2010. Company-owned restaurant sales for the quarter increased 32.2% over the same period in 2010, to $181.0 million, driven by a company-owned same-store sales increase of 5.7% and 44 additional company-owned restaurants at the end of third quarter 2011 relative to the same period in 2010. Franchise royalties and fees increased 16.2% to $16.7 million for the quarter versus $14.4 million in the third quarter of 2010. This increase is attributed to a franchise same-store sales increase of 4.2% and 41 additional franchised restaurants at the end of the period versus a year ago.
