Food costs are expected to moderate, but when?

And some commodities, like chicken wings and beef, may never return to pre-pandemic levels as consumers appear willing to pay higher prices.

BBQ Holdings won the bidding for the bankrupt owner of the six-unit Tahoe Joe’s along with the assets of several buffet chains, including Old Country Bufffet.

Shareholders ultimately got the better end of the deal, but it took years, a pandemic and some strange proposals to get there, says RB's The Bottom Line.

The burger giant said it would work with its operators, suppliers and other partners to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions in a bid to fight climate change.

Subway, Quiznos and Blimpie were rapidly growing before they met the sandwich curse. The reason for their problems? They depend too much on lunch, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The owner of Fatburger, Johnny Rockets and several other chains will have $1.8 billion in system sales as a result of the deal.

The sandwich chain, which just opened its 2,000th unit, now thinks it can get bigger thanks to smaller towns.

But the burger giant will have some competition from Arby’s, which has introduced its own barbecue rib sandwich.

The company wants to bring in more large-scale operators. But it is also encouraging existing franchisees to open more locations.

The firm’s “Tindex” index suggests restaurants slowed 1.9% in the month, the likely result of the delta variant.

While sales are back up over 2019 levels, even with the latest coronavirus surge, plenty of uncertainties remain about the future, says RB’s The Bottom Line.
