Good Times Restaurants Inc.
(Nasdaq:GTIM), a regional restaurant company focused on operating and developing Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard and Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants, today announced its same store sales for its Good Times restaurants increased 18.2% for its fiscal fourth quarter, the thirteenth consecutive quarter of same store sales increases, and increased 17.4% for the month of September, its sixth consecutive month of double digit increases. The Company said that while it does not normally release all monthly sales results, it plans to continue to release monthly same store sales results because the trend is so significant.
“Despite losing over five individual restaurant sales days and losing over 10% of our sales trend during the week of the historic flooding in Colorado, we maintained our trend of double digit increases,” said Boyd Hoback, President & CEO. He added: “Without the effects of the flooding, we estimate our same store sales would have increased approximately 21% from last year during September, with breakfast accounting for over 8% of that increase. We expect to report a continuing expansion of our operating margin for the fourth quarter as we did in the third quarter, and looking forward to fiscal 2014 based on our sales trends, improved operating margins and additional remodeling, we expect our Cash Flow from Operations from Good Times to increase significantly over our fiscal 2013 results.”
