- Sales from Company-operated restaurants were $9,502,000 during the fiscal 2022 period compared to $6,247,000 during the thirty-nine weeks ended December 27, 2020.

The increase in franchise royalties during the fiscal 2022 period was primarily due to an increase in franchise restaurant sales of $25,544,000 to $40,910,000 as compared to $15,366,000 for the thirty-nine weeks ended December 27, 2020 as we continue to lap the significant impact of COVID-19.2 Fifteen new franchised outlets, thirty-two new branded menu program outlets and 164 ghost kitchens opened during the fiscal 2022 period.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Highlights:
- Net sales were $118.4 million, an increase of $13.9 million, or 13.3%, from the prior year period due to continued improvement in the direct-store-delivery (“DSD”) channel compared to the prior year period
- Gross margin increased to 29.5% compared to 25.1% in the prior year period
- Net loss was $5.4 million compared to a net loss of $17.7 million in the prior year period
- Adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million compared to $8.3 million in the prior year period; the prior period included approximately $7.2 million in Adjusted EBITDA benefiting from higher amortized gains resulting from the curtailment of the postretirement medical plan.*
- As of December 31, 2021, total debt outstanding was $91.0 million and cash and cash equivalents were $3.6 million
(*Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is reconciled to its corresponding GAAP measure at the end of this press release.)
Deverl Maserang, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We saw further improvement across our business during the second fiscal quarter, highlighted by continued sequential growth in our sales trends. Our second fiscal quarter marked the sixth quarter of sequential improvement in our DSD sales, and we ended the quarter with average weekly DSD sales down 17% compared to pre-COVID levels, representing improvement from down 25% in the prior period and down 40% from one year ago. Our gross margin expanded sequentially and was up 4.4% over last year’s fiscal second quarter. Amid ongoing uncertainty related to the pandemic including inflationary headwinds, labor challenges and higher coffee prices, we are continuing to drive improvements across the business while managing costs closely. Overall, we are encouraged by what we believe is a strong opportunity to unlock underlying operating leverage as sales volumes continue to normalize.”

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM), operator of the Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar and Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard restaurant brands, today reported financial results for the fiscal quarter ended December 28, 2021.
Key highlights of the Company’s financial results include:
- Total Revenues for the quarter increased 20.5% to $32.9 million compared to fiscal 2021
- Total Restaurant Sales for Bad Daddy’s restaurants were $24.6 million for the quarter
- Same Store Sales1 for company-owned Bad Daddy’s restaurants increased 24.0% for the quarter, impacted by rolling over dining room closures in our Colorado restaurants during the prior year
- Total Restaurant Sales for Good Times restaurants were $8.1 million for the quarter
- Same Store Sales for company-owned Good Times restaurants decreased 5.9% for the quarter
- Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders was $0.3 million for the quarter
- Adjusted EBITDA2 (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $1.5 million
- The Company ended the quarter with $7.6 million in cash and no long-term debt
Ryan M. Zink, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “Despite macroeconomic challenges prevalent in the operating environment, I am pleased with our performance for the quarter. Like others in our industry, we are feeling inflationary pressures throughout our business, both in the cost of labor and in the cost of food and supplies. Nevertheless, we have taken a modest approach to menu price increases, while absorbing large wage increases to ensure adequate staff in our restaurants. We believe that this approach will deliver long-term benefits through multi-year sales gains at both concepts, and that over time, through gradual menu price increases and stellar service, we will continue to build long-term guest loyalty. We continued our trend of profitability, with net income to common shareholders of $0.3 million, and though this is down compared to fiscal 2021, the results are found in our same store sales, which are up at both brands compared to fiscal 2020 and with two-year same store sales gains of 19.5% at Good Times. We expect margins in the second fiscal quarter to be equally, if not more, challenged than they were this quarter as we continue to fight against continued increased price pressure on commodities and a tight labor market during a quarter that is seasonally lower in sales.”
Mr. Zink continued, “We continue to have confidence in both brands and, to support a strong future we are remodeling one of our Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard restaurants in the northern part of the Denver metro that will speak to our Colorado heritage and our focus on drive-thru service. The remodel of this legacy double drive-thru is not just a facelift but also adds elements to migrate the brand to better leverage technology, including the use of outdoor kiosks to service our walk-up customers and a re-envisioned patio, as well as digital menu boards and upgraded lane timing technology that will provide our operators greater ability to manage the flow of guests. We expect this remodel to be completed during the second half of fiscal 2022. At Bad Daddy’s, we continue to pursue the development of new restaurants in the southeast part of the country. We have one lease under active negotiation and several sites under various stages of negotiation for lease or purchase of real estate associated with our Bad Daddy’s brand. We continue to use discipline in site selection and expect new Bad Daddy’s restaurants to begin opening in Fiscal 2023.”
“Given the deferral of the use of cash in new restaurant development, today the Company separately announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to an aggregate of $5 million worth of the Company’s outstanding common stock. We believe this multi-faceted approach, which includes investing in both existing and new restaurants as well as returning capital to shareholders will create significant value over time,” Zink concluded.
