Ryan Zink, President & CEO, said: “We are pleased to report strong sales for both brands in our second fiscal quarter. We continue to see sequential improvement in average weekly sales at Bad Daddy’s as customers return to on-premises dining and our Good Times concept continues to post impressive sales in spite of reduced pandemic-related restrictions and increased consumer confidence in on-premise dining, which we attribute to improved awareness generated during the pandemic, and our laser-focus on accuracy and speed of service.

“We continue to focus on staffing our restaurants and operating safely in consideration of the impacts of COVID-19. To that end, we have implemented an incentive program that provides financial incentives for each employee who receives up to two COVID-19 vaccinations between March and June of this year. Further, we are not immune to staffing challenges facing restaurants, and other industries, and we continue to focus efforts toward programs that will allow us to aggressively compete with other companies and concepts for talented employees that are the heart and soul of each restaurant.”
