BK’s 2013: Smarter If Not Richer

Burger King Worldwide CEO Daniel Schwartz called 2013 “an important year” but it wasn’t a great one. Diluted earnings per share rose 22.4% yet the key indicators of restaurant performance were shaky. Globally, Burger King reported a 1.7% increase in comp sales for Q4 and a 0.5% increase for the year. Comp sales for North [...]

Burger Boss Looks to a Multi-Unit Future

Burger Boss opened in a storefront in Chicago suburb Elmwood Park in 2011 and the lines haven’t slowed. The menu offers make-your-own Angus burgers (or chicken, portobello mushroom or black bean veggie). There also are six signature builds (plus a Burger of the Month) priced from $4.89 to $7.99. It opened a second location in [...]

Wendy’s High-Low Pricing Pays Off

[Update: Watch for the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger to be Wendy's next premium burger.] The answer is yes. The question was whether a national quick-service burger chain could successfully implement a true “barbell” menu/pricing strategy in this economic and consumer environment. McDonald’s and Burger King have, for now at least, backed off premium-price items to focus [...]

Ruby Tuesday Downscales, Downsizes

Ruby Tuesday announced a net loss of $34.7 million for its second fiscal quarter, ended Dec. 3, 2013, but President-CEO James J. Buettgen asked analysts for time and faith that the chain’s repositioning will work. But Wall Street battered the casual-dining chain’s stock yesterday because there was simply too much bad news in the numbers. [...]
