Culver’s hits the big time

But the chain is keeping its small-town Midwestern roots, even as it expands nationally.


Why is restaurant traffic down? Look to the men

Males have decreased their visits each of the past two years, according to Technomic data, and value might be the reason, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The closures, which the chain says are temporary and will be refranchised, come as same-store sales continue to fall.

The continued maturation of the third-party aggregation business is both good and bad news for restaurants, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The two chains are seeing slow sales in their home markets and believe the introduction of plant-based items can reverse that trend.

The conveyor belt sushi chain raised $41 million on its first day of trading, proving Wall Street will welcome small restaurant chains, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

But traffic was down despite national value, and the company's stock price fell.

The plant-based burger will be available for a limited time next week, making BK the biggest chain to offer one.

The brand will quickly replace the restaurants with takeout and delivery locations as it accelerates its shift away from dine-in.

The movie theater-restaurant chain said it did not have enough cash to make an interest payment and is considering Chapter 11.
