Our improved quarterly financials are the result of a more focused organization executing on our previously announced program to optimize the customer experience at each point of interaction: dine-in, To Go, catering and retail. As a result of these efforts I firmly believe we are a stronger company today than we were one year ago with company-owned same store sales growth, improved store level profitability and reduced G&A expenses more appropriate for the size of our business."
