Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Total revenue for third quarter 2011 increased by 3.0% to $22.9 million compared to $22.3 million for the third quarter of 2010. Total cost of sales before occupancy was $17.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 or 76.9% of sales compared to prior year third quarter cost of sales before occupancy of $17.3 million or 77.7% of sales.

General and administrative expenses were $2.0 million or 8.7% of revenue for the third quarter of 2011 compared to $1.6 million or 7.1% of revenue for the third quarter of 2010. General and administrative costs included non-cash stock compensation of $143,000 in the third quarter of 2011 compared to $67,000 in the third quarter of 2010. With the addition of several key members of management in connection with our May 2011 transaction, we expect general and administrative expenses to run at a higher rate in future months. We believe that the benefit of restaurant upgrades and future restaurant unit growth will offset these expenses in the long term. We will monitor these expenses closely and will make adjustments as needed.
