Consolidated revenues were $331.3 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of $18.8 million, or 6.0%, over the corresponding 2011 period. This increase in revenues for the first quarter of 2012 was primarily due to the following:

  • North America franchise royalty revenue increased approximately $800,000, or 4.0%, primarily due to an increase in net franchise units over the prior year.
  • Domestic commissary sales increased $9.9 million, or 7.8%, due to an increase in the volume of sales and increases in the prices of certain commodities.
  • International revenues increased $4.1 million, or 32.1%, primarily due to an increase in the number of restaurants and an increase in comparable sales of 8.4% calculated on a constant dollar basis.
