Qdoba is considering a sale

Private-equity group Apollo Global Management is exploring a sale of the burrito chain less than two years after its acquisition.

The company said its comparable-store sales have increased for nine straight years, but wage inflation hurt store profits last quarter.

The casual-dining chain cited costs associated with the service, suggesting the burgeoning business is a headwind for some companies, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

A vegan has sued Burger King over the Impossible Whopper, which is made on the same grills as meat burgers.

The chicken sandwich chain’s charitable arm has shifted its spending priorities and will not fund controversial groups next year.

With casual-dining chains struggling and few buyers to compete with, the Landry’s owner is on another buying binge, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
