Mike Pruitt, Chanticleer Chief Executive Officer stated, “We continue to be pleased with the progress of our national rollout of both our Little Big Burger and Burgers Grilled Right brands. As of today, we have 13 LBB stores and expect to add an additional 7-11 new locations throughout the balance of the year. With our current pipeline, remaining JV locations and new potential franchise partners we remain confident we can exceed our previous guidance. For 2018 we continue to expect total store count to grow more than 20%.”
Pruitt concluded, “While our main focus on the better burger category continues to yield encouraging results, it is also worth noting that as of March 11, 2018, our eight owned Hooters franchises have all experienced year over year same-store growth. The average growth across all eight was nearly 12.7%, with three stores posting in excess of 18% growth. We believe these assets continue to accrue unrecognized value for our shareholders. We will continue to explore options with respect to best unlocking the value of these holdings, including our minority stake in Hooters parent company.
