In a 53-week fiscal year, each of the first, second and third quarters includes 13 weeks of operations and the fourth quarter includes 14 weeks of operations, which may cause our revenue, expenses and other results of operations to be higher due to an additional week of operations.
  • Results of Operations of FAT Brands Inc.
  • Revenue - Revenue consists of royalties, franchise fees, advertising fees, restaurant sales, factory revenue and other revenue. Total revenue increased $185.3 million, or 1,241%, in the first two quarters of 2022, to $200.2 million compared to $14.9 million in the same period of 2021. The increase reflects revenue from the acquisition of GFG in July 2021, the acquisition of Twin Peaks in October 2021, the acquisition of Fazoli's in December 2021 and the acquisition of Native in December 2021 (collectively, the "2021 Acquisitions") and the continuing recovery from the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on royalties from restaurant sales.
