Same-store sales at Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard increased 6.8 percent year over year during the fourth quarter, the QSR chain’s parent company announced.
Good Times Restaurants executives attributed growth at the 38-unit chain to synergy achieved between store remodels, marketing performance, menu innovation and other “brand initiatives.”
“We are very pleased to have met our goal of low to mid-single digit same store sales increases for the quarter especially as we lap the largest two-year comp sales stack we’ve had of over 30 percent at Good Times,” Good Times Restaurants CEO Boyd Hoback said.
Comp sales at Good Times’ sister concept, Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, also grew 6.8 percent during the quarter ended Sept. 30. Good Times Restaurants acquired the 13-unit Bad Daddy’s chain in May, after which comps at the casual-dining concept jumped by 9.5 percent, a growth trend Good Times executives said they did not expect to continue in future quarters.
The company noted that it expects to open eight to 10 new Bad Daddy’s restaurants during 2016.
