Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • For fiscal 2021, we currently estimate commodity cost inflation of approximately 2% and continue to expect government-mandated minimum wage impacts to be more favorable than in recent years. However, there is some uncertainty to overall hourly wage rate inflation given the more competitive current industry labor environment. In addition, we estimate G&A of approximately $47 million per quarter for the remainder of fiscal 2021.
  • We plan to open as many as 14 new restaurants in fiscal 2021, including two The Cheesecake Factory restaurants, six North Italia restaurants and six restaurants within our FRC business, which includes two Flower Child locations. Internationally, we expect to open as many as three The Cheesecake Factory restaurants under licensing agreements. We currently estimate fiscal 2021 cash capital expenditures to be approximately $100 million. This estimate contemplates a net outlay of approximately $47 million for restaurants expected to open during fiscal 2021, approximately $43 million for replacements, enhancements and capacity additions to our existing restaurants and approximately $10 million for bakery and corporate infrastructure investments.
