Black Box: Restaurant sales in April the best in 3 years

Traffic is still falling, but the industry is showing some improvement after a tough start to 2018.


Franchisors need to say more about franchisee finances

The bankruptcy filing of large Applebee’s franchisee shows that franchisors don’t reveal enough of their operators’ financial health, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The company said that its strategic review didn’t result in a viable offer, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

Chief Marketing Officer Brandon Rhoten is leaving the company, which is looking for a way to reverse worsening sales.

The chain says its sales haven’t changed in markets where its larger rival has tested fresh-beef burgers.

The chain said that its delivery orders have increased 667% since the partnership kicked off last week.

The chain's stock falls after its sales weaken again.

But this time, the chain is adding a spiced-up version of the popular product.

The chain is bringing beer delivery to nearly 100 locations in Arizona and California.

Consumers are slow to adapt to the new technology, so don’t expect quick improvement, says RB’s The Bottom Line.

The deal for Barteca Restaurant Group gives the casual-dining operator two growth chains.

He will take over operations of the owner of Brioche Doree and La Madeleine in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
