RB+ subscribers will now get an important new benefit: a page tracking publicly traded chains’ quarterly results.

The Restaurant Business same-store sales page is the latest in our ongoing commitment to providing you with the best and most comprehensive finance information and analysis.

The page can be navigated by calendar quarter. The data includes every company that publicly reports its quarterly data. Chains that do not publish traditional same-store sales metrics, including Krispy Kreme and Steak 'n Shake, are not included.

It will also feature a quarterly analysis of the sales results, along with a video explaining the quarter’s results.

We will update the page with the new set of numbers every quarter.

To get access to the page, become an RB subscriber. You can subscribe here. Register and use the code MAZE21 to get the first month free.

In addition to same-store sales, people interested in finance information and analysis can also subscribe to get access to The Bottom Line, the award-winning blog that analyzes the industry from a finance perspective. In addition, subscribe to its companion newsletter to get an extra dose of analysis in your email box every Monday. The newsletter is accessible to everybody.

Two points on the sales data: It goes by calendar quarter, rather than chains’ fiscal quarter. We include the chains’ most relevant fiscal period to the calendar.

Also, it lists one-year same-store sales, though much of our current analysis is focused on two-year data. As you can imagine, some of the one-year numbers have been extraordinary the past two years.

So please check it out. And subscribe to RB+. Subscribers get a lot of benefits beyond finance news, including in-depth stories and features, analysis from Peter Romeo and Nancy Kruse, exclusive webinars and other content.
