BJ's Restaurants has been a strong performer in the past few months because investors are starting to realize the casual dining chain's growth prospects, says the company's CEO Greg Trojan. Trojan says the company is better able to focus on its business after its battle with activist shareholders ended with an amicable resolution in April. He adds that technology is a major thrust at BJ's to improve and speed up the customer experience, most importantly the ability to order ahead and pay via mobile device. Finally, Trojan says the company will continue with its eastward push since it is already well represented in California.
