Julian R. Geiger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crumbs, said “While our financial performance during the second quarter was consistent with our expectations for a year of transition, we believe that we have been able to foster necessary structural and operational changes more quickly than anticipated, and as a result, have become confident in increasing the number of new store openings during the second half of 2012, and in 2013. We believe that this growth, combined with our recently announced agreement with Starbucks Corporation, and with ongoing progress with our six primary initiatives, will change the trajectory of our business in a positive direction over the next 12 to 18 months.”Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results Net sales increased 7.7% to $11.1 million from $10.3 million for the same period last year.
