The barbecue chain is looking to evolve, both as a casual dining chain and a takeout concept.

A slight gain in transactions failed to generate a same-store sales boost for the grill and bar concept.

The chain is planning to test delivery to go along with catering and big event orders.

He says the company won’t discount more than it already has out of concern for its franchisees’ margins.

Restaurant CEO pay was flat last year amid weak sales and weaker stock prices.

Winners and losers were plentiful in Q1, a quarter that proved to be tougher than it seemed, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Del Frisco’s acquisition of Barteca shows Wall Street’s willingness to accept more strategic deals, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Cost cuts and better revenue have offset the chain's decline in same-store sales.
