A. Current Performance

Revenues between 2000 and 2003 rose sharply due to new unit expansion but masked a slowing year-to-year growth rate. New strategies and initiatives must be taken in order to continue growth.

  • Revenues rose from $350.8 million in 2000 to $977.1 million in 2003, fueled by new unit expansion
  • In 2000, comparable sales and annualized unit volumes (AUVs) increased 9.1% and 12.0% respectively. In 2003, those same figures increased only 0.2% and 0.5% reflecting slowed growth.
