Chief Executive Officer. “While weakness in consumer confidence and the economy in general continue to create a challenging operating environment, we are encouraged by the response to the introduction of our Red’s Tavern Double™ platform, which allows us to provide burger innovation and everyday value to our guests. We also feel good about the disciplines and processes we’ve put in place to strengthen our business, and the talent we’ve added to our operations and culinary teams to help us achieve our long-term strategic goals.”
