Hot numbers of the week: double-digit comps honor roll; Candy Crush results; a stock free fall

11%, 11%, 10.3%

The most recent quarter’s same-store-sales increases for Dave & Buster’s, American Burger Company and the Casey’s convenience-store chain, respectively (the figure for Casey’s is just for foodservice sales). The comps were the highest reported for the period by public foodservice operations.  American Burger is the fast-casual burger chain of Chanticleer Holdings, which is better known as a Hooters operator.


Dave & Buster’s year-over-year increase in walk-in traffic during the April-through-June period, the biggest driver of the 11 percent increase in comp sales, according to management. They cited such contributors as the addition of Candy Crush and Jurassic Park games, as well as the rollout of tiki-style cocktails and Mega Mojitos.
