Good Times Restaurants Inc., operator of Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard, a regional quick-service restaurant chain focused on fresh, high-quality, all-natural products and of Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a full-service, upscale concept, today announced that its Bad Daddy’s same store sales increased 3.2 percent in its fiscal second quarter ended March 28, 2017 over the prior year’s increase of 1.9 percent and its Good Times’ same store sales increased 0.1 percent during the quarter over the prior year’s increase of 0.5 percent. Excluding the days that the Good Times’ restaurants were closed for kitchen remodels to add new production line equipment, same store sales increased 0.5 percent for the quarter.
Boyd Hoback, president and CEO, says: “We saw our third consecutive quarter of sequential improvement in our same store sales at Good Times, and we continue to exceed our expectations for Bad Daddy’s. We are very pleased with our results during the second quarter, particularly given the competitive discounting environment, and the fact that we had no media advertising in place for Good Times. We completed our kitchen updates in all of our Good Times stores which will allow us to meet our planned roll out of our hotter, cheesier burger lineup and mid-tier priced burgers in all stores during the first week of April with television advertising support. In addition, our most recent Good Times restaurant in Greeley, Colorado, has experienced record sales in its first two weeks of being open, and our newest Bad Daddy’s restaurant in Fayetteville, North Carolina, continues to be one of our top-performing stores in the system. We are opening our next new Bad Daddy’s stores in Colorado in April and June, and in Raleigh, NC in May with three more under development in North Carolina and Oklahoma for opening in August and September.”
