"Our brands continued to meaningfully outperform the segment during a challenging quarter for the industry," said Elizabeth Smith, Chairman of the Board and CEO. "We beat the Knapp index for traffic by 400 basis points and remain on track to deliver our earnings goal for the year. Also of note, we were pleased to acquire control of our Brazilian joint venture and we look forward to accelerating growth in this key market."
