Plant-based meat can't lift Del Taco's traffic

Weak sales and high costs sent the Mexican fast-food chain’s shares plunging.


Sweetgreen has raised a ton of money

The fast-casual salad chain has raised nearly $480 million since 2009. RB’s The Bottom Line looks at the numbers.

The company plans to introduce the plant-based product at more than 9,000 locations next month.

The six-month pilot location, a test of its international expansion strategy, will reportedly lose its lease amid pushback from LGBTQ activists.

Guests can now order from their phone at a table inside participating restaurants.

The departure comes as the delivery provider faces a lawsuit, a boycott, financial losses and is for sale, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The burger chain is sponsoring the Stevenage Football Club and making it the centerpiece of an online gaming marketing campaign.

The chain needed less than two hours to sell out of its “Seasoned Tickets” for 10 weeks’ worth of wings.

The chain wants to double its overseas sales within five years and is eyeing the U.K. for new restaurants.

The executive, who played a key role in removing “Donuts” from the company’s name, is leaving in December.

Steve Heeley, CEO of the veggie-friendly fast-casual chain Veggie Grill, joins this week’s episode of "A Deeper Dive" to talk about the plant-based trend.

The company wants to simplify its ordering as customers demand more takeout and drive-thru.
