Chuy’s Holdings, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Revenue increased $8.5 million, or 19.0%, to $53.5 million in the third quarter of 2013 compared to the third quarter of 2012. The increase was primarily driven by $9.2 million in incremental revenue from an additional 110 operating weeks provided by 11 new restaurants opened during and subsequent to the third quarter of 2012.

Due to a 53rd week in fiscal 2012, there is a one-week calendar shift in the comparison of the fiscal third quarter of 2013 to the fiscal third quarter of 2012. As a result of this shift, the fiscal third quarter of 2013 included a lower-volume fall week in place of a typically higher volume summer week compared to last year. This shift reduced revenue by approximately $690,000 during the third quarter of 2013.

On a calendar basis, the Company‚Äôs comparable restaurant sales increased 3.1% for the 13-week period ended September 29, 2013 compared to the 13-week period ended September 30, 2012. The increase in comparable sales was driven by a 2.0% increase in average check and a 1.1% increase in average weekly customers. Due to the 53rd week in fiscal 2012, and the one week calendar shift previously noted, the comparable restaurant sales calculation above is based on comparing sales in the third fiscal quarter of 2013 to sales in the corresponding calendar period of 2012, as mentioned previously. On a fiscal basis, sales for the same restaurants in the comparable restaurant base in the third fiscal quarter ended September 29, 2013 increased 1.9% compared to the third fiscal quarter ended September 23, 2012. The comparable restaurant base consisted of 31 restaurants during the third quarter of 2013.

Total restaurant operating costs as a percentage of revenue increased to 81.7% in the third quarter of 2013 from 80.9% in the third quarter of 2012, driven primarily by the impact of higher food costs, particularly produce and chicken costs, and higher labor costs as a percentage of revenue driven by increased training and staffing levels at our new restaurants.
