  • Total restaurant sales increased 16.9% to $68.9 million for the first half of 2013 from $59.0 million in the first half of 2012

  • Company recorded approximately $4.5 million in Adjusted EBITDA in the first half of 2013 compared to $3.5 million in the first half of 2012

“We incorporated a variety changes to our menu during the second quarter which caused some increases in our labor and food costs as the staff adjusted to the enhanced menu,” commented Rob Doran, CEO. That said, we performed strongly as a company, our Troy and Franklin prototypes continued to perform very well, and we increased our EBITDA on a quarter over quarter basis. During the quarter we also completed the construction of our downtown Indianapolis restaurant that recently opened in July 2013. We feel the team is well positioned and we look forward to future restaurant openings including the upcoming new restaurant in Lyndhurst, Ohio later this fall.”
