Restaurants’ looming debt problem

This episode of RB’s podcast, "A Deeper Dive," discusses how more chains face problems with falling sales and too much leverage.


How Wall Street is hurting restaurants

Public markets discourage long-term investments. Here’s how Panera Bread founder Ron Shaich would fix it, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The company has a partnership with DoorDash at 1,100 locations.

The limited-time offer pairs Belgian waffles with Extra Crispy fried chicken.

For Arc Group, which is on a buying spree, the deal was too good to pass up.

Despite low unemployment, real wages simply haven’t grown all that much, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The Papa John’s Franchise Association hired Robert Zarco to investigate the brand’s decline.

Bankruptcies, sales and store closures show that the tough market is exposing companies’ poor plans, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Same-store sales rose again in October, but traffic continues to decline.

Along with the new look, the fast-casual chain is also testing an “elevated menu” with several new items.

Demand stalls at Wendy’s, Burger King and McDonald’s despite frequent discounts, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Weakening same-store sales and slower-than-expected store openings sent the share price down as much as 45%.
