BJ`s Restaurant (BJRI)

BJ's Restaurants, Inc. ('BJ's') is a national brand with brewhouse roots and a menu where craft matters. BJ's broad menu has something for everyone: slow-roasted entrees, like prime rib, BJ's EnLIGHTened Entrees® including Cherry Chipotle Glazed Salmon, signature deep dish pizza and the often imitated, but never replicated world-famous Pizookie® dessert. BJ's has been a pioneer in the craft brewing world since 1996, and takes pride in serving BJ's award-winning proprietary handcrafted beers, brewed at its brewing operations in five states and by independent third party craft brewers. The BJ's experience offers high-quality ingredients, bold flavors, moderate prices, sincere service and a cool, contemporary atmosphere. Founded in 1978, BJ's owns and operates 210 casual dining restaurants in 29 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington. All restaurants offer dine-in, take-out, delivery and large party catering. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, one of our restaurants remains temporarily closed, and dine-in service is currently limited or not available and hours are limited in our remaining 209 restaurants.

Management Discussion
  • Revenues.  Total revenues increased by $75.4 million, or 33.8%, to $298.7 million during the thirteen weeks ended March 29, 2022, from $223.3 million during the comparable thirteen week period of 2021. The increase in revenues primarily consisted of a 33.9%, or $74.0 million, increase in comparable restaurant sales, a $2.9 million increase in sales from new restaurants not yet in our comparable restaurant sales base, coupled with a net $0.7 million increase related to the re-opening in August 2021 of our temporarily closed restaurant due to the COVID pandemic. Revenue increases were offset by a $1.2 million decrease in revenues related to expired loyalty points during the same period in the prior year, which were recorded to revenue, a $0.5 million decrease related to the closure of our Pasadena restaurant, and a $0.3 million decrease related to our temporarily closed restaurant as a result of a fire. The increase in comparable restaurant sales was the result of an increase in guest traffic of approximately 26.4%, coupled with an increase in average check of approximately 7.5%. The increase in guest traffic was primarily due to the re-opening of our dining rooms, which were closed or restricted in operation during the same period in 2021.
