Gary Copperud, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are excited to have completed our recent public offering. The offering proceeds combined with continued strong performance at our Burger Time locations leave us well-positioned to pursue our plan of growing through acquisitions in the restaurant industry.” Mr. Copperud added, “As with most restaurant companies, we have seen cost pressures, both in commodities and in the labor market. We expect those pressures to continue through the balance of this fiscal year and into 2022. We expect to be able to manage commodity cost increases through targeted menu price adjustments; however, we believe that overall labor costs will continue to be pressured.”

Conference Call: Management will host a conference call to discuss its third quarter 2021 financial results on Thursday, November 18, at 3:30 p.m. CT/4:30 p.m. ET. Hosting the call will be Kenneth Brimmer, its COO, and Chief Financial Officer.
