GOOD TIMES RESTAURANTS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

 

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)

 

(Tabular dollar amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)

 

Note 1. Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Good Times Restaurants Inc. (the “Company”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries as well as six partnerships in which the Company is the controlling partner. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company operates, franchises, and licenses full-service restaurants under the brand Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar that are primarily located in Colorado and in the Southeast region of the United States.

 

The Company operates and franchises drive-thru fast food hamburger restaurants under the brand Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard, all of which are located in Colorado and Wyoming.

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and practices of the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all of the normal recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position of the Company as of March 29, 2022 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the two fiscal quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021. Operating results for the two fiscal quarters ended March 29, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 27, 2022. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 28, 2021 is derived from the audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. As a result, these condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2021.

 

Fiscal Year – The Company’s fiscal year is a 52/53-week year ending on the last Tuesday of September. In a 52-week fiscal year, each of the Company’s quarterly periods consist of 13 weeks. The additional week in a 53-week fiscal year is added to the first quarter, making such quarter consist of 14 weeks. The quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021 each consisted of 13 weeks. The year-to-date periods ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021 each consisted of 26 weeks.

 

Advertising Costs – We utilize Advertising Funds to administer certain advertising programs for both the Bad Daddy’s and Good Times brands that benefit both us and our franchisees.   We and our franchisees are required to contribute a percentage of gross sales to the fund.  The contributions to these funds are designated and segregated for advertising. We consolidate the Advertising Funds into our financial statements whereby contributions from franchisees, when received, are recorded and included as a component of franchise revenues.  We recognize costs associated with the advertising funds based upon the same expense recognition principles we apply to other expenses. Contributions to the Advertising Funds from our franchisees were $136,000 and $131,000 for the quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021, respectively and are included in franchise revenues.

 

Receivables – Our receivables typically consist of royalties and other fees due to us from independent franchisees of our brands as well as product rebates and other incentives due to us under agreements with our food and beverage vendors. The receivable balance for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 includes approximately $745,000 due to us under the lease termination agreement further described in Note 6 to these financial statements, such amount which had been deposited into an escrow account with a qualified escrow agent but was actually received by us subsequent to the end of the quarter.

 

COVID-19

 

Currently all of our Bad Daddy’s and Good Times restaurants are operating with no COVID-19 related government restrictions or mask mandates. However, the second-and third-order effects from the pandemic has had a lingering impact on our restaurant operations for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 including disruptions and other impacts to the supply chain and labor markets, and varying changes in consumer behavior. During portions of the month of November 2020 through early January 2021, all of the Company’s Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants in Colorado were open only for limited outdoor dining, delivery and carry-out service, with indoor dining rooms closed by government orders. Beginning in early January 2021, we began to re-open Colorado dining rooms at Bad Daddy’s, with limited occupancy, as local regulations allowed. Our dining rooms in all other states in which Bad Daddy’s has operations were open during this time. Although certain dining rooms were open, all were operating at some reduction of capacity, whether driven by explicit capacity reductions under government orders, or due to social distancing protocols that are either mandated by the same government orders, or which we abide by as under our own internal protocols designed to maintain a safe foodservice environment, both for our employees and for our customers.

 

Our operating results substantially depend upon our ability to drive traffic to our restaurants, and for our Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants, to serve guests in our dining rooms. We cannot currently predict the continued impact of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, including any mutations of the virus and additional variants; neither are we able to predict how the pandemic will evolve nor how the long-lived impacts on supply chain, labor market, and customer behavior will evolve. Should additional dining room closures or mask mandates occur, our business could be adversely affected. Even without government orders, customers may choose to reduce or eliminate in-restaurant dining if there are increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, or deaths.

Additionally, in connection with spread of COVID-19, there have been disruptions in various food supply chains in the United States. Our operating results substantially depend upon our ability to obtain sufficient quantities of products such as beef, bacon, packaging and other products used in the production and serving of items served and sold to our guests. Ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic could result in product shortages and in-turn could require us to serve a limited menu, restrict number of items purchased per guest, or close some or all of our restaurants for an indeterminate period of time. The long-lived, residual impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic and its evolution could result in reduced revenue and cash flow and could affect our assessments of impairment of intangible assets, long-lived assets, or goodwill.

 

Note 2. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company reviewed all recently issued accounting pronouncements and concluded that they were either not applicable or not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Note 3. Revenue

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenues consist primarily of sales from restaurant operations and franchise revenue, which includes franchisee contributions to advertising funds. Revenues associated with gift card breakage are immaterial to our financials. The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation by transferring control over a product or service to a customer, typically a restaurant customer or a franchisee/licensee.

 

The Company recognizes revenues in the form of restaurant sales at the time of the sale when payment is made by the customer, as the Company has completed its performance obligation, namely the provision of food and beverage, and the accompanying customer service, during the customer’s visit to the restaurant. The Company sells gift cards to customers and recognizes revenue from gift cards primarily in the form of restaurant revenue. Gift Card breakage, which is recognized when the likelihood of a gift card being redeemed is remote, is determined based upon the Company’s historic redemption patterns, and is immaterial to our overall financial statements.

 

Revenues we receive from our franchise and license agreements include sales-based royalties, and from our franchise agreements also may include advertising fund contributions, area development fees, and franchisee fees. We recognize sales-based royalties from franchisees and licensees as the underlying sales occur. We similarly recognize advertising fund contributions from franchisees as the underlying sales occur. The Company also provides its franchisees with services associated with opening new restaurants and operating them under franchise and development agreements in exchange for area development and franchise fees. The Company would capitalize these fees upon receipt from the franchisee and then would amortize those over the contracted franchise term as the services comprising the performance obligations are satisfied. We have not received material development or franchise fees in the years presented, and the primary performance obligations under existing franchise and development agreements have been satisfied prior to the earliest period presented in our financial statements.

 

Note 4. Goodwill and Intangible Assets

 

The following table presents goodwill and intangible assets as of March 29, 2022 and September 28, 2021 (in thousands):

The Company had no goodwill impairment losses in the periods presented in the above table. The aggregate amortization expense related to these and previously fully-amortized intangible assets subject to amortization was $5,000 for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 and $8,000 for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. During the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, the company purchased one previously franchised Bad Daddy’s restaurant in Greenville, SC and in connection with this purchase recorded $563,000 of additional goodwill.

 

Note 5. Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company has traditionally maintained incentive compensation plans that include provision for the issuance of equity-based awards. The Company established the 2008 Omnibus Equity Incentive Compensation Plan in 2008 (the “2008 Plan”) and has outstanding awards that were issued under the 2008 Plan. Subsequently, the 2008 Plan expired in 2018 and the Company established a new plan, the 2018 Omnibus Equity Incentive Plan (the “2018 Plan”) during the third fiscal quarter of 2018, pursuant to shareholder approval. Future awards will be issued under the 2018 Plan. Currently, the maximum number of shares available for issuance under the 2018 Plan is 1,050,000.

 

Stock-based compensation is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the grant). The Company recognizes the impact of forfeitures as forfeitures occur.

 

Our net (loss) for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021 includes $147,000 and $276,000, respectively, of compensation costs related to our stock-based compensation arrangements.

 

Stock Option awards

 

The Company measures the compensation cost associated with stock option awards by estimating the fair value of the award as of the grant date using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The Company believes that the valuation technique and the approach utilized to develop the underlying assumptions are appropriate in calculating the fair values of the Company’s stock options and stock awards granted during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022. Estimates of fair value are not intended to predict actual future events or the value ultimately realized by the employees who receive equity awards.

 

In addition to the exercise and grant date prices of the stock option awards, certain weighted average assumptions that were used to estimate the fair value of stock option grants are listed in the following table:

 

   Two Quarters Ended March 29, 2022
Incentive and Non-Qualified Stock
Options
  Two Quarters Ended March 30, 2021
Incentive and Non-Qualified Stock
Options
       
Expected term (years)  6.5  3.63
Expected volatility  61.3%  74.62%
Risk-free interest rate  1.8%  0.24%
Expected dividends 
-
 
-

 

We estimate expected volatility based on historical weekly price changes of our common stock for a period equal to the current expected term of the options. The risk-free interest rate is based on the United States treasury yields in effect at the time of grant corresponding with the expected term of the options. The expected option term is the number of years we estimate that options will be outstanding prior to exercise considering vesting schedules and our historical exercise patterns.

 

The following table summarizes stock option activity for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 under all plans:

 

   Shares   Weighted
Average
Exercise Price
   Weighted Average
Remaining
Contractual Life (Yrs)
 
             
Outstanding at beginning of year   443,815    $

Options granted   105,000    $4.90    
 
 
Options exercised   (28,797)  $3.10    
 
 
Outstanding March 29, 2022   520,018   $3.91    5.7 
Exercisable March 29, 2022   352,934   $3.57    5.1 

 

As of March 29, 2022, the aggregate intrinsic value of the outstanding and exercisable options was $567,000. Only options whose exercise price is below the closing price of the Company’s common stock as of March 29, 2022 are included in the intrinsic value calculation.

 

During the quarter ended March 29, 2022, the Company granted 25,000 non-qualified stock options to its Senior Vice President of Finance pursuant to Rule 5635(c)(4) of the Nasdaq Stock Market Listing Rules as an inducement to employment at an exercise price of $3.95 per share. The options were granted on the Senior Vice President of Finance’s first day of employment on March 7, 2022 and vest ratably over a three-year period with a 10-year expiration date.

 

10

 

As of March 29, 2022, the total remaining unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock options was approximately $283,000 and is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 1.8 years.

 

There were 23,797 stock options exercised that resulted in an issuance of 23,797 shares during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 with proceeds of approximately $90,000. There were 43,330 stock options exercised during the two quarters ended March 30, 2021 with proceeds of approximately $96,000.

 

Restricted Stock Units

 

During the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, there were 28,000 restricted stock units granted. For the two quarters ended March 30, 2021, there were no restricted stock units granted.

 

A summary of the status of non-vested restricted stock as of March 29, 2022 is presented below.

 

   Shares   Grant Date Fair
Value Per Share
        
Non-vested shares at beginning of year   61,952   $1.54 to $3.95
Granted   28,000   $4.50
Vested   (15,616)  $3.95
Non-vested shares at March 29, 2022   74,336   $1.54 to $4.50

 

As of March 29, 2022, there was $136,000 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested restricted stock. This cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 0.7 years.

 

Restricted and Unrestricted Common Stock Awards

 

During the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 there were 9,256 unrestricted shares of common stock granted to directors of the Company. These shares had a grant date fair value of $4.35 per share which is equal to the closing price of the stock on the date of grant and resulted in the recognition of $40,000 of stock-based compensation expense. During the two quarters ended March 30, 2021, the Company granted its directors 12,948 shares of common stock and its Chief Executive Officer 10,000 performance shares from available shares under its 2018 Plan. The shares were issued with a grant date fair market value of $2.78 and $2.77, respectively, which is equal to the closing price of the stock on the date of grants. The performance shares granted to the Chief Executive Officer became fully vested on April 6, 2021 pursuant to the vesting provisions set forth in the grant notice.

 

Note 6. Gain on Sale of Assets and Lease Termination

 

The Company had previously entered into an agreement with the landlord for one of its Good Times restaurants which provided the landlord an option to terminate the lease with a six-month notice in exchange for a specific termination penalty. During the fiscal quarter ended December 28, 2021 the landlord for this location exercised the termination option. The Company continued to operate this location through the majority of the notice period ending March 31, 2022. For the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, we recognized a $642,000 gain in connection with the lease termination. The remainder of the gain recognized during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 is the periodic recognition of deferred gains resulting from prior sale-leaseback transactions associated with certain Good Times restaurants.

 

Note 7. Notes Payable and Long-Term Debt

 

Cadence Credit Facility

 

The Company maintains a credit agreement with Cadence Bank (“Cadence”) pursuant to which, as amended, Cadence has agreed to loan the Company up to $8,000,000 with a maturity date of January 31, 2023 (as amended, the “Cadence Credit Facility”). As amended by the various amendments, the Cadence Credit Facility accrues commitment fees on the daily unused balance of the facility at a rate of 0.25%. As of March 29, 2022, any borrowings under the Cadence Credit Facility, as amended, bear interest at a variable rate based upon the Company’s election of (i) 2.5% plus the base rate, which is the highest of the (a) Federal Funds Rate plus 0.5%, (b) the Cadence Bank publicly announced prime rate, and (c) LIBOR plus 1.0%, or (ii) LIBOR, with a 0.250% floor, plus 3.5%. Interest is due at the end of each calendar quarter if the Company elects to pay interest based on the base rate and at the end of each LIBOR period if it elects to pay interest based on LIBOR. The Cadence Credit Facility, includes provisions for the Administrative Agent of the facility to amend the facility to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate, which may be (but is not required to be) SOFR, at such point in time when appliable LIBOR rates are no longer available or no longer reliable. The exact timing of any transition of LIBOR to an alternate benchmark rate is not currently known.

 

11

 

During the quarter ended March 29, 2022 the Company entered into an amendment to the Cadence Credit Facility which, among other things, amends the Credit Agreement to modify the “Restricted Payments” covenant in the Credit Agreement to exempt Company repurchases of common stock made in connection with the Company’s publicly announced share repurchase program.

 

As of March 29, 2022, the Cadence Credit Facility contains certain affirmative and negative covenants and events of default that the Company considers customary for an agreement of this type, including financial covenants setting a maximum leverage ratio of 5.15:1, a minimum pre-distribution fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.25:1, a minimum post-distribution fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.10:1 and minimum liquidity of $2.0 million. As of March 29, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all of these financial covenants under the Cadence Credit Facility.

 

As a result of entering into the Cadence Credit Facility and the various amendments, the Company paid loan origination costs including professional fees of approximately $308,500 and is amortizing these costs over the term of the credit agreement.

 

The obligations under the Cadence Credit Facility are collateralized by a first-priority lien on substantially all of the Company’s assets.

 

As of March 29, 2022, there were no outstanding borrowings against the facility. Availability of the Cadence Credit Facility for borrowings is reduced by the outstanding face value of any letters of credit issued under the facility. As of March 29, 2022, there were no outstanding letters of credit issued under the facility.

 

Note 8. Net (Loss) Income per Common Share

 

Our basic earnings per share calculation is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Our diluted earnings per share calculation is computed based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding adjusted by the number of additional shares that would have been outstanding had the potentially dilutive common shares been issued. Potentially dilutive securities for this calculation consist of in-the-money outstanding stock options, restricted stock units and warrants (which were assumed to have been exercised at the average market price of the common shares during the reporting period). The treasury stock method is used to measure the dilutive impact of in-the-money stock options.

 

The following table reconciles basic weighted-average shares outstanding to diluted weighted-average shares outstanding:

 

   Quarter Ended   Year-to-Date 
   March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021   March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021

Note 9. Contingent Liabilities and Liquidity

 

There may be various claims in process, matters in litigation, and other contingencies brought against the company by employees, vendors, customers, franchisees, or other parties. Evaluating these contingencies is a complex process that may involve substantial judgment on the potential outcome of such matters, and the ultimate outcome of such contingencies may differ from our current analysis. We regularly review the adequacy of accruals and disclosures related to such contingent liabilities in consultation with legal counsel. While it is not possible to predict the outcome of these claims with certainty, subject to our disclosure immediately below, it is management’s opinion that any reasonably possible losses associated with such contingencies would be immaterial to our financial statements.

 

The Company is the defendant in a lawsuit styled as White Winston Select Asset Funds, LLC and GT Acquisition Group, Inc. v. Good Times Restaurants, Inc., arising from the failed negotiations between plaintiffs and the Company for the sale of the Good Times Drive Thru subsidiary to plaintiffs. The lawsuit was initially filed on September 24, 2019 in Delaware Chancery Court, and Company removed the case to federal court in the US District Court for the District of Delaware on November 5, 2019. On July 30, 2021, the plaintiffs moved the Court for leave to amend their complaint and add new causes of action and a claim for $18 million in damages. On April 11, 2022, the Court heard the parties’ respective motions for summary judgment on the plaintiffs’ claims. The Court verbally ruled that it was dismissing all of the plaintiffs’ claims except for their claim for breach of an express and implied obligation to negotiate in good faith under the parties’ letter of intent. On May 5, 2022, the Court issued a written order confirming this ruling. Trial is set on this lone remaining claim for August 22, 2022. While the Court’s ruling significantly limited plaintiff’s opportunity for recovery in the case, in light of the ruling and the Court’s order, the inherent uncertainties of trial and the Company’s posture in respect of settlement, among other things, the Company has determined that some loss in respect of the lawsuit is probable and accordingly has recorded an accrual in the current period in the amount of $332,000. This amount represents the Company’s best estimate of the likely amount of plaintiffs’ damage recovery assuming a finding of liability in their favor at trial and their ability to satisfy the legal standard for proving damages in such amount, based upon the Company’s retained expert and a report he made in response to the plaintiffs’ claims for damages. The accrual is an estimate and is based on current information, the judgment of management and advice of counsel. The Company will continue to evaluate this matter based on new information as it becomes available. The outcome of the case could result in losses less than or in excess of amounts accrued. Any additional liability in excess of the accrual could have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations, liquidity or financial condition for the annual or interim period during which any such additional liability is accrued. The Company will continue to vigorously pursue a full defense of this matter on the merits

Note 10. Leases

 

The Company determines if a contract contains a lease at inception. The Company's material long-term operating lease agreements are for the land and buildings for our restaurants as well as our corporate office. The initial lease terms range from 10 years to 20 years, most of which include multiple renewal options, typically 5 years each, with cumulative renewal option periods of 10 to 15 years. The lease term is generally the minimum of the noncancelable period or the lease term including renewal options which are reasonably certain of being exercised up to a term of approximately 20 years.

 

Operating lease assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date for material leases with a term of greater than 12 months. Operating lease liabilities represent the present value of future minimum lease payments. Since our leases do not provide an implicit rate, our operating lease liabilities are calculated using our estimated incremental borrowing rate based on a collateralized borrowing over the term of each individual lease. Minimum lease payments include only fixed lease components of the agreement, as well as variable rate payments that depend on an index, initially measured using the index at the lease commencement date.

 

Operating lease assets represent our right to use an underlying asset and are based upon the operating lease liabilities adjusted for prepaid or accrued lease payments, initial direct costs and lease incentives. Lease incentives are recognized when earned and reduce our operating lease asset related to the lease. They are amortized through the operating lease assets as reductions of rent expense over the lease term.

 

Operating lease expense is recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Certain of the Company’s operating leases contain clauses that provide for contingent rent based on a percentage of sales greater than certain specified target amounts. Variable lease payments that do not depend on a rate or index, escalation in the index subsequent to the initial measurement, payments associated with non-lease components such as common area maintenance, real estate taxes and insurance, and short-term lease payments (leases with a term with 12 months or less) are expensed as incurred or when the achievement of the specified target that triggers the contingent rent is considered probable.

 

Some of the leases provide for base rent, plus additional rent based on gross sales, as defined in each lease agreement. The Company is also generally obligated to pay certain real estate taxes, insurance and common area maintenance charges, and various other expenses related to properties, which are expensed as incurred.

 

Components of operating lease costs are as follows for the fiscal quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021:

 

Lease cost  Classification  March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021 
Operating lease cost  Occupancy, Other restaurant operating costs and General and administrative expenses, net  $1,830   $1,771 
Variable lease cost  Occupancy   59    20 
Sublease income  Occupancy   (136)   (135)
      $1,753   $1,656 

 

Components of operating lease costs are as follows for the two fiscal quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021:

 

Lease cost  Classification  March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021 
Operating lease cost  Occupancy, Other restaurant operating costs and General and administrative expenses, net  $3,625   $1,771 
Variable lease cost  Occupancy   79    20 
Sublease income  Occupancy   (272)   (135)
      $3,432   $1,656 

 

Weighted average lease term and discount rate are as follows:

   March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021 
Weighted average remaining lease term (in years)   9.06    10.0 
           
Weighted average discount rate   5.0%   5.0%

Supplemental cash flow disclosures for the two fiscal quarters ended March 29, 2022:

 

   March 29, 2022   March 30, 2021 
Cash paid for operating lease liabilities  $3,621   $3,461 
           
Non-cash operating lease assets obtained in exchange for
operating lease liabilities
  $872   $110 

 

Supplemental balance sheet disclosures:

 

      March 29, 2022   March 30,2021 
Right-of-use assets  Operating lease assets  $44,741   $47,702 
              
Current lease liabilities  Operating lease liability  $5,279   $4,770 
Non-current lease liabilities  Operating lease liability, less current portion   48,215    51,939 
Total lease liabilities     $53,494   $56,709 

 

Future minimum rent payments for our operating leases for each of the next five years as of March 29, 2022 are as follows:

 

Fiscal year ending:  Total 
Remainder of 2022  $3,898 
2023   7,833 
2024   7,730 
2025   7,814 
2026   7,256 
Thereafter   32,540 
Total minimum lease payments   67,071 
Less: imputed interest   (13,577)
Present value of lease liabilities  $53,494 

 

The above future minimum rental amounts exclude the amortization of deferred lease incentives, renewal options that are not reasonably assured of renewal, and contingent rent. The Company generally has escalating rents over the term of the leases and records rent expense on a straight-line basis.

 

Note 11. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and Goodwill

 

Long-Lived Assets. We review our long-lived assets including land, property, and equipment for impairment when there are factors that indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. We assess recovery of assets at the individual restaurant level and typically include an analysis of historical cash flows, future operating plans, and cash flow projections in assessing whether there are indicators of impairment. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the net book value of the assets of an individual restaurant to the fair value of those assets. This impairment process involves significant judgment in the use of estimates and assumptions pertaining to future projections and operating results.

 

For the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, we recognized $1,753,000 in total asset impairments for three restaurants. Of this amount, $487,000 was related to two Good Times restaurants and $1,266,000 was related to one Bad Daddy’s restaurant. During the two quarters ended March 30, 2021 no asset impairment costs were recognized.

 

Trademarks. Trademarks have been determined to have an indefinite life. We evaluate our trademarks for impairment annually and on an interim basis as events and circumstances warrant by comparing the fair value of the trademarks with their carrying amount. There was no impairment required to the acquired trademarks as of March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021.

 

Goodwill. Goodwill represents the excess of cost over fair value of the assets of businesses the Company acquired. Goodwill is not amortized, but rather, the Company is required to test goodwill for impairment on an annual basis or whenever indications of impairment arise. The Company considers its operations to be comprised of two reporting units: (1) Good Times restaurants and (2) Bad Daddy’s restaurants. As of March 29, 2022, the Company had $96,000 of goodwill attributable to the Good Times reporting unit and $5,617,000 of goodwill attributable to its Bad Daddy’s reporting unit. No goodwill impairment charges were recognized during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022. During the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, the company purchased one previously franchised Bad Daddy’s restaurant in Greenville, SC and in connection with this purchase recorded $563,000 of additional goodwill.

 

Note 12. Income Taxes

 

We account for income taxes using the liability method, whereby deferred tax asset and liability account balances are determined based on differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company provides a valuation allowance, if necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to their estimated realizable value. The deferred tax assets are reviewed periodically for recoverability and valuation allowances are adjusted as necessary.

The Company had a net loss in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 and continues to have significant net operating loss carryforwards from prior years and a history of net losses through the duration of our existence. Full valuation allowances were established to reduce any deferred tax assets recorded to zero for both the quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021. Although we have established a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets, we are subject to income tax in certain jurisdictions where we do not have substantial net operating loss carry forwards. As such, we have recognized a provision for income taxes of $8,000 for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 related to state income taxes resulting in an effective income tax rate of 2.0% for the period. For the period ended March 30, 2021, we did not recognize any provision for income taxes as we estimated no current tax liability either for federal or state jurisdictions resulting in an effective tax rate of -0.4% for the period.

 

The Company is subject to taxation in various jurisdictions within the U.S. The Company continues to remain subject to examination by U.S. federal authorities for the years 2018 through 2022. The Company believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained upon audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded. The Company’s practice is to recognize interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. No accrual for interest and penalties was considered necessary as of March 29, 2022.

 

Note 13. Non-controlling Interests

 

Non-controlling interests are presented as a separate item in the shareholders’ equity section of the condensed consolidated balance sheet. The amount of consolidated net income or loss attributable to non-controlling interests is presented on the face of the condensed consolidated statement of operations. Changes in a parent’s ownership interest in a subsidiary that do not result in deconsolidation are equity transactions, while changes in ownership interest that do result in deconsolidation of a subsidiary require gain or loss recognition based on the fair value on the deconsolidation date.

 

The equity interests of the unrelated limited partners and members are shown on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet in the shareholders’ equity section as a non-controlling interest and is adjusted each period to reflect the limited partners’ and members’ share of the net income or loss as well as any cash contributions or distributions to or from the limited partners and members for the period. The limited partners’ and members’ share of the net income or loss in the subsidiary is shown as non-controlling interest income or expense in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations. All inter-company accounts and transactions are eliminated.

 

The following table summarizes the activity in non-controlling interests during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 (in thousands):

 

   Bad Daddy’s   Good Times   Total 
Balance at September 28, 2021  $915   $209   $1,124 
Income   840    310    1,150 
Distributions   (596)   (148)   (744)
Balance at March 29, 2022  $1,159   $371   $1,530 

 

Our non-controlling interests consist of one joint-venture partnership involving seven Good Times restaurants and five joint-venture partnerships involving five Bad Daddy’s restaurants.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

This Form 10-Q contains or incorporates by reference forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the disclosure of risk factors in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2021. Also, documents subsequently filed by us with the SEC and incorporated herein by reference may contain forward-looking statements. We caution investors that any forward-looking statements made by us are not guarantees of future performance and actual results could differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including but not limited to the following:

 

(II) The disruption to our business from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the impact of the pandemic on our results of operations, financial condition and prospects. The disruption and effect on our business may vary depending on the duration and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of federal, state and local governmental actions and customer behavior in response to the pandemic.

 

(II) We compete with numerous well-established competitors who have substantially greater financial resources and longer operating histories than we do. Competitors have increasingly offered selected food items and combination meals, including hamburgers, at discounted prices, and continued discounting by competitors may adversely affect revenues and profitability of Company restaurants.

 

(II) We may be negatively impacted if we experience same store sales declines. Same store sales comparisons will be dependent, among other things, on the success of our advertising and promotion of new and existing menu items. No assurances can be given that such advertising and promotions will in fact be successful.

 

(II) We may be negatively impacted if we are unable to pass on to customers through menu price increases the increased costs that we incur through inflation experienced in our input costs including both the cost of food and the cost of labor. Recent metrics have indicated that increased levels of price inflation are prevalent throughout the economy and the impacts of such inflation, including the impact of related governmental response, cannot be accurately predicted.

 

We may also be negatively impacted by other factors common to the restaurant industry such as: changes in consumer tastes away from red meat and fried foods; increases in the cost of food, paper, labor, health care, workers’ compensation or energy; inadequate number of hourly paid employees; and/or decreases in the availability of affordable capital resources. We caution the reader that such risk factors are not exhaustive, particularly with respect to future filings. For further discussion of our exposure to market risk, refer to Part I, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 28, 2021.

 

Overview.

 

Good Times Restaurants Inc., through its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company” or “we”, “us” or “our”) operates and franchises/licenses full-service hamburger-oriented restaurants under the name Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar (Bad Daddy’s) and operates and franchises hamburger-oriented drive-through restaurants under the name Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard (Good Times).

 

We are focused on targeted unit growth of the Bad Daddy’s concept while at the same time growing same store sales and improving the profitability of both the Bad Daddy’s and the Good Times’ concepts.

 

COVID-19

 

Currently all of our Bad Daddy’s and Good Times restaurants are operating with no COVID-19 related government restrictions or mask mandates. However, the second-and third-order effects from the pandemic has had a lingering impact on our restaurant operations for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 including disruptions and other impacts to the supply chain and labor markets, and varying changes in consumer behavior. During portions of the month of November 2020 through early January 2021, all of the Company’s Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants in Colorado were open only for limited outdoor dining, delivery and carry-out service, with indoor dining rooms closed by government orders. Beginning in early January 2021, we began to re-open Colorado dining rooms at Bad Daddy’s, with limited occupancy, as local regulations allowed. Our dining rooms in all other states in which Bad Daddy’s has operations were open during this time. Although certain dining rooms were open, all were operating at some reduction of capacity, whether driven by explicit capacity reductions under government orders, or due to social distancing protocols that are either mandated by the same government orders, or which we abide by as under our own internal protocols designed to maintain a safe foodservice environment, both for our employees and for our customers.

 

Our operating results substantially depend upon our ability to drive traffic to our restaurants, and for our Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar restaurants, to serve guests in our dining rooms. We cannot currently predict the continued impact of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, including any mutations of the virus and additional variants; neither are we able to predict how the pandemic will evolve nor how the long-lived impacts on supply chain, labor market, and customer behavior will evolve. Should additional dining room closures or mask mandates occur, our business could be adversely affected. Even without government orders, customers may choose to reduce or eliminate in-restaurant dining if there are increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, or deaths.

 

 17 

 

Additionally, in connection with spread of COVID-19, there have been disruptions in various food supply chains in the United States. Our operating results substantially depend upon our ability to obtain sufficient quantities of products such as beef, bacon, packaging and other products used in the production and serving of items served and sold to our guests. Ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic could result in product shortages and in-turn could require us to serve a limited menu, restrict number of items purchased per guest, or close some or all of our restaurants for an indeterminate period of time. The long-lived, residual impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic and its evolution still could result in reduced revenue and cash flow and could affect our assessments of impairment of intangible assets, long-lived assets, or goodwill.

 

Growth Strategies and Outlook.

 

We believe there are significant opportunities to grow customer traffic and increase awareness of our brands. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we reduced our development profile as we sought to improve our financial position, and while we believe there are unit growth opportunities for both of our concepts, we are evaluating that in-line with the impact of the pandemic on the restaurant industry. We currently are filling a restaurant development pipeline and expect new Bad Daddy’s restaurant openings beginning in fiscal 2023.

 

Restaurant locations.

 

As of March 29, 2022, we operated, franchised, or licensed a total of forty-two Bad Daddy’s restaurants and thirty-one Good Times restaurants. The following table presents the number of restaurants operating at the end of the second fiscal quarters of 2022 and 2021.

Results of Operations

 

Fiscal quarter ended March 29, 2022 (13 weeks) compared to fiscal quarter ended March 30, 2021 (13 weeks):

 

Net Revenues. Net revenues for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 increased $4,405,000 or 15.1% to $33,597,000 from $29,192,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. Bad Daddy’s concept revenues increased $4,495,000 while our Good Times concept revenues decreased $90,000.

 

Bad Daddy’s restaurant sales increased $4,464,000 to $25,447,000 for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 from $20,983,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily due to increased traffic resulting from rolling over covid restrictions and residual avoidance of indoor dining during the prior year, as well as menu price increases. The average menu price increase for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 over the same prior-year quarter was approximately 6.2%.

 

Good Times restaurant sales decreased $95,000 to $7,917,000 for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 from $8,012,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This decrease is primarily due to decreased traffic resulting from a shift of customer preference towards indoor dining compared to the prior year, partially offset by menu price increases. The average menu price increase for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 over the same prior-year quarter was approximately 8.2%.

 

Franchise revenues were $233,000 in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to $197,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily due to increased royalties at the Bad Daddy’s franchisee and licensee restaurants.

 

Same Store Sales

 

Sales store sales is a metric used in evaluating the performance of established restaurants and is a commonly used metric in the restaurant industry. Same store sales for our brands are calculated using all units open for at least eighteen full fiscal months and use the comparable operating weeks from the prior year to the current year quarter’s operating weeks.

 

Bad Daddy’s same store restaurant sales increased 15.5% during the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to the same thirteen-week period ended March 30, 2021 in the prior-year quarter. This increase is primarily due to increased traffic resulting from rolling over covid restrictions and residual avoidance of indoor dining during the prior year, as well as menu price increases. There were thirty-seven restaurants included in the same store sales base at the end of the quarter.

 

Good Times same store restaurant sales decreased 0.9% during the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to the same thirteen-week period ended March 30, 2021 in the prior-year quarter. This decrease is primarily due to decreased traffic resulting from a shift of customer preference towards indoor dining compared to the prior year, partially offset by menu price increases. There were twenty-three restaurants included in the same store sales base at the end of the quarter.

 

Restaurant Operating Costs

 

Food and Packaging Costs. Food and packaging costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 increased $2,251,000 to $10,457,000 (31.3% of restaurant sales) from $8,207,000 (28.3% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s food and packaging costs were $7,972,000 (31.3% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, up from $5,881,000 (28.0% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily attributable to higher restaurant sales during the current quarter versus the same quarter in the prior year. The increase as a percent of sales is attributable the significant inflation noted during the quarter with most of our food and packaging products seeing meaningful unit price increases.

 

Good Times food and packaging costs were $2,485,000 (31.4% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, up from $2,326,000 (29.0% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily attributable to the impact of higher purchase prices on food and paper goods, partially offset by increased menu pricing.

 

Payroll and Other Employee Benefit Costs. Payroll and other employee benefit costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 increased $1,910,000 to 11,555,000 (34.6% of restaurant sales) from $9,645,000 (33.3% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s payroll and other employee benefit costs were $8,736,000 (34.3% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 up from $6,996,000 (33.3% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The $1,740,000 increase is primarily attributable to increased labor hours to support increased restaurant guest counts during the current quarter versus the same quarter in the prior year, as well as higher average wage rates, particularly in the back of house. As a percent of sales, payroll and employee benefits costs increased by 1.0% primarily attributable to higher average wage rates paid to attract qualified employees.

 

 19 

 

Good Times payroll and other employee benefit costs were $2,819,000 (35.6% of restaurant sales) in the quarter ended March 29, 2022, up from $2,649,000 (33.1% of restaurant sales) in the same prior-year period. This increase, both in nominal dollars and as measured as a percent of restaurant sales, was primarily attributable to higher average wage rates paid to attract qualified employees. These higher wages are in-part driven by a combination of the significant statutory wage increase in the City and County of Denver and the impact of the overall market for quick service restaurant employees.

 

Occupancy Costs. Occupancy costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 increased $222,000 to $2,377,000 (7.1% of restaurant sales) from $2,155,000 (7.4% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s occupancy costs were $1,679,000 (6.6% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, up from $1,413,000 (6.7% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to lease costs with newly opened restaurants and increased property tax assessments. The slight decrease as a percentage of sales was primarily due to the leveraging effect of higher restaurant sales.

 

Good Times occupancy costs were $698,000 (8.8% of restaurant sales) in the quarter ended March 29, 2022, down from $742,000 (9.3% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to property tax expense and end-of-term rent abatement associated with a lease termination agreement for one Good Times restaurant, as well as the assignment of one lease to a third party during 2021.

 

Other Operating Costs. Other operating costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, increased $1,025,000 to $4,667,000 (14.0% of restaurant sales) from $3,642,000 (12.6% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s other operating costs were $3,670,000 (14.4% of restaurant sales) for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 up from $2,860,000 (13.6% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The increase was attributable to higher overall sales. As a percent of sales, the increase is attributable to higher increased spending on restaurant technology, higher repair and higher preventive maintenance expenses.

 

Good Times other operating costs were $997,000 (12.6% of restaurant sales) in the quarter ended March 29, 2022, up from $782,000 (9.7% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The increase was primarily attributable to general price inflation in operating supplies costs and increases in commissions paid to delivery service providers due to increases in overall delivery sales.

 

New Store Preopening Costs. There were no preopening costs incurred during the quarter ended March 29. 2022.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Costs. Depreciation and amortization costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, increased $83,000 to $1,013,000 from $930,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s depreciation and amortization costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 increased $96,000 to $834,000 from $738,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021. This increase was primarily attributable to the two new restaurants opened in final quarter of fiscal 2021.

 

Good Times depreciation and amortization costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 decreased $13,000 to $179,000 from $192,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

General and Administrative Costs. General and administrative costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, increased $159,000 to $2,577,000 (7.7% of total revenue) from $2,418,000 (8.3% of total revenue) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

This increase in general and administrative expenses in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 is primarily attributable to:

 

Increased costs in legal and professional services of $386,000
Decrease in administrative related payroll and benefit costs of $268,000, primarily related stock-based compensation recognized during the prior-year quarter associated with the vesting of restricted stock and stock options that had been awarded to the CEO in connection with the amendment of his employment agreement and reduced health insurance underwriting losses.
Reduced multi-unit management costs of approximately $30,000, primarily related to reduced incentive compensation associated with lower restaurant- and district-level income
Increased technology costs of approximately $36,000
Increased insurance costs, primarily related with D&O, cyber, and EPL policies of approximately $23,000
Approximately $12,000 of increased travel costs

 

For the balance of the fiscal year, we expect general and administrative costs to trend similarly in nominal terms to costs incurred during the current quarter.

 

Advertising Costs. Advertising costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022, increased $302,000 to $812,000 (2.4% of total revenue) from $510,000 (1.7% of total revenue) for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

 20 

 

Bad Daddy’s advertising costs were $467,000 (1.8% of total revenue) in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to $186,000 (0.9% of total revenue) in the same prior year period. The increase is primarily due to greater spending on physical menus and point-of-sale materials in the current quarter versus the same prior year quarter when menus and point-of-sale merchandising materials were digital; recognition of commission earned by third parties on gift cards sold through large-box retailers; and a radio advertising campaign in Colorado. The current and prior year quarters each include advertising costs of $5,300 and $4,000 respectively, associated with franchise advertising contributions.

 

Good Times advertising costs were $345,000 (4.3% of total revenue) in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to $324,000 (4.0% of total revenue) in the same prior year period. The slight increase is primarily due to decreased increased advertising expenditures in the current quarter versus the same prior year quarter. The current and prior year quarters include advertising costs of $62,000 and $60,000, respectively, of costs associated with franchise advertising contributions.

 

Good Times advertising costs consists primarily of contributions made to the advertising materials fund and a regional advertising cooperative based on a percentage of restaurant sales which are used to provide television and radio advertising, social media and on-site and point-of-purchase. Advertising costs are presented gross, with franchisee contributions to the fund being recognized as a component of franchise revenues. As a percentage of total revenue, we expect advertising costs to remain relatively stable, at approximately 4.0% of total revenue for the Good Times segment.

 

Franchise Costs. Franchise costs were $6,000 and $12,000 for the quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021, respectively. The costs are primarily related to the Good Times franchised restaurants. We currently have minimal direct costs associated with maintaining our franchise systems as those employees overseeing franchisee relations primarily perform responsibilities associated with company operations.

 

Impairment Costs. Costs related to the impairment of long-lived assets were $1,753,000 for the quarter ended March 29, 2022. Good Times Impairment costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 were $487,000 due to the asset impairments of two Good Times restaurants. Bad Daddy’s impairment costs for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 were $1,266,000 due to the impairment of one Bad Daddy’s restaurant.

 

Litigation Contingencies. The Company recorded a contingent loss of $332,000 during the second quarter ended March 29, 2022 related to in-process litigation. No similar losses were recorded during the same prior year quarter.

 

Gain on Restaurant Asset Sales and Lease Termination. The gain on restaurant asset sales and lease termination for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 was $43,000 compared to $10,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2021. Approximately $35,000 of this is related to additional gain recognized associated with the lease termination at one Good Times restaurant after accounting for all closure and disposal costs.

 

Income (Loss) from Operations. Loss from operations was $1,909,000 in the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to income from operations of $1,603,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

The change in the loss from operations for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 is primarily due to matters discussed in the sections above.

 

Other Income / Expense. Interest expense was $11,000 during the quarter ended March 29, 2022, primarily related to amortization of loan fees.

 

Provision for Income Taxes. Provision for income taxes was zero for the quarter ended March 29, 2022.

 

Net (Loss) Income. Net loss was $1,920,000 for the quarter ended March 29, 2022 compared to net income of $1,523,000 in the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

The change from the quarter ended March 29, 2022 to the quarter ended March 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to the matters discussed in the relevant sections above.

 

Income Attributable to Non-Controlling Interests. The non-controlling interest represents the limited partners’ or members’ share of income in the Good Times and Bad Daddy’s joint-venture restaurants.

 

For the quarter ended March 29, 2022, the income attributable to non-controlling interests was $230,000 compared to $426,000 for the quarter ended March 30, 2021.

 

Of the current quarter’s income attributable to non-controlling interests, $157,000 is attributable to Bad Daddy’s joint-venture restaurants, compared to $244,000 in the same prior year period. This $87,000 decrease is primarily due to reduced restaurant-level profitability in the relevant restaurants; and $73,000 is attributable to the Good Times joint-venture restaurants, compared to $182,000 in the same prior year period. This $109,000 decrease is primarily due to reduced restaurant-level profitability in the relevant restaurants.

 

Fiscal two quarters ended March 29, 2022 (26 weeks) compared to fiscal two quarters ended March 30, 2021 (26 weeks):

 

Net Revenues. Net revenues for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 increased $10,025,000 or 17.7% to $66,513,000 from $56,488,000 for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. Bad Daddy’s concept revenues increased $10,414,000 while our Good Times concept revenues decreased $389,000.

Bad Daddy’s restaurant sales increased $10,364,000 to $50,037,000 for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 from $39,673,000 for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily due to increased traffic resulting from rolling over covid restrictions and residual avoidance of indoor dining during the prior year, as well as menu price increases. The average menu price increase for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 over the same prior-year quarter was approximately 5.5%.

 

Good Times restaurant sales decreased $400,000 to $16,003,000 for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 from $16,403,000 for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. This decrease is primarily due to decreased traffic resulting from a shift of customer preference towards indoor dining compared to the prior year, partially offset by menu price increases. The average menu price increase for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 over the same prior-year quarter was approximately 7.2%.

 

Franchise revenues were $473,000 in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to $412,000 in the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily due to increased royalties at the Bad Daddy’s franchisee and licensee restaurants attributable to increased sales.

 

Same Store Sales

 

Sales store sales is a metric used in evaluating the performance of established restaurants and is a commonly used metric in the restaurant industry. Same store sales for our brands are calculated using all units open for at least eighteen full fiscal months and use the comparable operating weeks from the prior year to the current year quarter’s operating weeks.

 

Bad Daddy’s same store restaurant sales increased 19.5% during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to the same thirteen-week period ended March 30, 2021 in the prior-year quarter. This increase is primarily due to increased traffic resulting from rolling over covid restrictions and residual avoidance of indoor dining during the prior year, as well as menu price increases. There were thirty-seven restaurants included in the same store sales base at the end of the quarter.

 

Good Times same store restaurant sales decreased 1.7% during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to the same thirteen-week period ended March 30, 2021 in the prior-year quarter. This decrease is primarily due to decreased traffic resulting from a shift of customer preference towards indoor dining compared to the prior year, partially offset by menu price increases. There were twenty-three restaurants included in the same store sales base at the end of the quarter.

 

Restaurant Operating Costs

 

Food and Packaging Costs. Food and packaging costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 increased $4,635,000 to $20,683,000 (31.3% of restaurant sales) from $16,048,000 (28.6% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s food and packaging costs were $15,784,000 (31.5% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, up from $11,237,000 (28.3% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. This increase is primarily attributable to higher restaurant sales during the two quarters versus the same period in the prior year. The increase as a percent of sales is attributable the significant inflation noted during the quarter with most of our food and packaging products seeing meaningful unit price increases.

 

Good Times food and packaging costs were $4,899,000 (30.6% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, up from $4,811,000 (29.3% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. The increase as a percent of sales is due primarily to the impact of higher purchase prices on food and paper goods, partially offset by increased menu pricing.

 

Payroll and Other Employee Benefit Costs. Payroll and other employee benefit costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 increased $4,206,000 to 22,732,000 (34.4% of restaurant sales) from $18,526,000 (33.0% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s payroll and other employee benefit costs were $17,154,000 (34.3% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 up from $13,263,000 (33.4% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The $3,891,000 increase is primarily attributable to greater hours to support increased guests at restaurants during the current year versus the same prior year period, as well as higher average pay rates. As a percent of sales, payroll and employee benefits costs increased by 0.9% primarily attributable to higher average wage rates paid to attract qualified employees.

 

Good Times payroll and other employee benefit costs were $5,578,000 (34.9% of restaurant sales) in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, up from $5,263,000 (32.1% of restaurant sales) in the same prior-year period. The $315,000 increase, both in nominal dollars and as measured as a percent of restaurant sales, was attributable to higher average wage rates paid to attract qualified employees. These higher wages are in-part driven by a combination of the significant statutory wage increase in the City and County of Denver and the impact of the overall market for quick service restaurant employees.

Occupancy Costs. Occupancy costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 increased $355,000 to $4,705,000 (7.1% of restaurant sales) from $4,350,000 (7.5% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

The increase was primarily attributable to lease costs with newly opened restaurants and increased property tax assessments. The decrease as a percentage of sales was primarily due to the leveraging effect of higher restaurant sales.

 

Good Times occupancy costs were $1,378,000 (8.6% of restaurant sales) in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, down from $1,483,000 (9.0% of restaurant sales) in the same prior year period. The decrease was primarily attributable to decreases in property tax expense and end-of-term rent abatement associated with a lease termination agreement for one good times restaurant, as well as the assignment of one lease to a third party during 2021.

 

Other Operating Costs. Other operating costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, increased $1,694,000 to $8,805,000 (13.3% of restaurant sales) from $7,111,000 (12.7% of restaurant sales) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

The increase was primarily attributable to general price inflation in supplies costs and increases in commissions paid to delivery service providers due to increases in overall delivery sales.

 

New Store Preopening Costs. Preopening costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 decreased $69,000 to $50,000 from $119,000 in the two quarters ended March 30. 2021. All of the costs in the current year were related to a Bad Daddy’s restaurant opened near the end of fiscal 2021. The costs in the prior year were related to Bad Daddy’s restaurants that opened in 2021.

 

Depreciation and Amortization Costs. Depreciation and amortization costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, increased $138,000 to $1,997,000 from $1,859,000 in the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

 

Bad Daddy’s depreciation and amortization costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 increased $143,000 to $1,618,000 from $1,475,000 in the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. This increase was primarily attributable to the two new restaurants opened in final quarter of fiscal 2021.

 

Good Times depreciation and amortization costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 decreased $5,000 to $379,000 from $384,000 in the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

This increase in general and administrative expenses in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 is primarily attributable to:

 

Decrease in administrative related payroll and benefit costs of $463,000 primarily related to the prior-year one-time bonus awarded to the CEO during the two quarters ended March 30, 2021 in connection with the amendment of his employment agreement and reduced health insurance underwriting losses, partially offset by increased administrative salaries and wages.
Increase in costs associated with multi-unit management of $96,000 primarily related to increased multi-unit travel costs and incentive compensation
Increase in professional services of $529,000, primarily attributable to increased legal costs
Increase of $61,000 in recruiting and travel costs primarily associated with training managers for Bad Daddy’s restaurants
Increase of $91,000 associated with in-person restaurant general managers’ conference held in the current year that had not been held in the prior year
Increase of $198,000 for professional services and various banking and other vendor fees
Increased technology costs of $116,000 primarily attributable to expenses related to maintenance of mobile applications and financial reporting systems, as well as costs associated with additional administrative personnel
Increase of $49,000 for office lease and equipment expenses
Increase in other expenses of approximately $13,000 including increased D&O, cyber, and EPL insurance policies, increased general travel, partially offset by lower costs in other categories

 

Advertising Costs. Advertising costs for the two quarters ended March 29, 2022, increased $434,000 to $1,453,000 (2.2% of total revenue) from $1,019,000 (1.8% of total revenue) for the two quarters ended March 30, 2021.

 

 23 

 

Bad Daddy’s advertising costs were $781,000 (1.6% of total revenue) in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to $353,000 (0.9% of total revenue) in the same prior year period. The increase is primarily due to greater spending on physical menus and point-of-sale materials in the current quarter versus the same prior year quarter when menus and point-of-sale merchandising materials were digital; recognition of commission earned by third parties on gift cards sold through large-box retailers; and a radio advertising campaign in Colorado. The current and prior year quarters each include advertising costs of $9,000 and $7,000 respectively, associated with franchise advertising contributions.

 

Good Times advertising costs were $672,000 (4.1% of total revenue) in the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to $666,000 (4.0% of total revenue) in the same prior year period.

Advertising costs are presented gross, with franchisee contributions to the fund being recognized as a component of franchise revenues. As a percentage of total revenue, we expect advertising costs to remain relatively stable, at approximately 4.0% of total revenue for the Good Times segment.

 

Franchise Costs. Franchise costs were $11,000 and $17,000 for the quarters ended March 29, 2022 and March 30, 2021, respectively.

Other Income / Expense. Interest expense was $29,000 during the two quarters ended March 29, 2022 compared to $178,000 in the two quarters ended March 30, 2021. The decrease is primarily due to the absence of borrowing in the current year, compared to borrowings against the Cadence Credit Facility during the same two quarters ended in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA

 

EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization.

 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA plus non-cash stock-based compensation expense, preopening expense, non-recurring acquisition costs, GAAP rent in excess of cash rent, and non-cash disposal of assets. Adjusted EBITDA is intended as a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by or presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and operating results. Our management uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (i) as a factor in evaluating management's performance when determining incentive compensation and (ii) to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies.

 

We believe that the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company's financial measures with other fast casual restaurants, which may present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. In addition, you should be aware when evaluating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA that in the future we may incur expenses similar to those excluded when calculating these measures. Our presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Our computation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures computed by other companies, because all companies do not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same fashion.

 

Our management does not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company's financial statements. Some of these limitations are:

 

Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect our cash expenditures, or future requirements, for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on our debts;
although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements;
stock based compensation expense is and will remain a key element of our overall long-term incentive compensation package, although we exclude it as an expense when evaluating our ongoing performance for a particular period;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations; and
other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

 

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA only as a supplemental measure. You should review the reconciliation of net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA below and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash and Working Capital

 

As of March 29, 2022, we had a working capital deficit of $708,000. Our working capital position benefits from the fact that we generally collect cash from sales to customers the same day, or in the case of credit or debit card transactions, within a few days of the related sale. Although we have negotiated payment terms of up to four weeks with many of our vendors, we pay our primary foodservice vendors on 1-3 day payment terms to take advantage of early pay discounts and generally pay most outstanding accounts payable upon review for accuracy and validity. In addition, our working capital position includes the recognition of the current portion of lease liabilities as we lease substantially all of our real estate and have both short-term and long-term obligations to our landlords. We believe that we will have sufficient capital to meet our working capital, recurring operating costs and recurring capital expenditure needs throughout fiscal 2023. As of March 29, 2022, we had no commitments related to construction contracts for any restaurants currently under development.

 

The Company‘s Board of Directors authorized a $5.0 Million share repurchase program which became effective February 7, 2022. The authorization to repurchase will continue until the maximum value of shares is achieved or the Company terminates the program. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price, general business and market conditions, and alternative investment opportunities. As of March 29, 2022 the Company has repurchased 75,900 shares of its common stock pursuant to the share repurchase plan leaving $4,669,767 available for repurchases under the plan.

 

Financing

 

Cadence Credit Facility

 

The Company maintains a credit agreement with Cadence Bank (“Cadence”) pursuant to which, as amended, Cadence has agreed to loan the Company up to $8,000,000 with a maturity date of January 31, 2023 (as amended, the “Cadence Credit Facility”). As amended by the various amendments, the Cadence Credit Facility accrues commitment fees on the daily unused balance of the facility at a rate of 0.25%. As of March 29, 2022, any borrowings under the Cadence Credit Facility, as amended, bear interest at a variable rate based upon the Company’s election of (i) 2.5% plus the base rate, which is the highest of the (a) Federal Funds Rate plus 0.5%, (b) the Cadence Bank publicly announced prime rate, and (c) LIBOR plus 1.0%, or (ii) LIBOR, with a 0.250% floor, plus 3.5%. Interest is due at the end of each calendar quarter if the Company elects to pay interest based on the base rate and at the end of each LIBOR period if it elects to pay interest based on LIBOR. The Cadence Credit Facility, includes provisions for the Administrative Agent of the facility to amend the facility to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate, which may be (but is not required to be) SOFR, at such point in time when appliable LIBOR rates are no longer available or no longer reliable. The exact timing of any transition of LIBOR to an alternate benchmark rate is not currently known.

 

 26 

 

During the quarter ended March 29, 2022 the Company entered into an amendment to the Cadence Credit Facility which, among other things, amends the Credit Agreement to modify the “Restricted Payments” covenant in the Credit Agreement to exempt Company repurchases of common stock made in connection with the Company’s publicly announced share repurchase program described above.

 

As of March 29, 2022, the Cadence Credit Facility, contains certain affirmative and negative covenants and events of default that the Company considers customary for an agreement of this type, including covenants setting a maximum leverage ratio of 5.15:1, a minimum pre-distribution fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.25:1, a minimum post-distribution fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.10:1 and minimum liquidity of $2.0 million. As of March 29, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants under the Cadence Credit Facility.

 

As a result of entering into the Cadence Credit Facility and the various amendments, the Company paid loan origination costs including professional fees of approximately $308,500 and is amortizing these costs over the term of the credit agreement.

 

The obligations under the Cadence Credit Facility are collateralized by a first-priority lien on substantially all of the Company’s assets.

 

As of March 29, 2022, there were no outstanding borrowings against the facility. Availability of the Cadence Credit Facility for borrowings is reduced by the outstanding face value of any letters of credit issued under the facility. As of March 29, 2022, there were no outstanding letters of credit issued under the facility.

Impact of Inflation

 

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, availability of certain commodities could be constrained and prices for those commodities could be substantially more volatile than in recent history. Additionally, headline inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index has recently exceeded inflation amounts recorded at any time during the past forty years. We have experienced significant inflationary pressure both on the cost of labor in the form of salaries and wages, and also in raw products, across many of the commodities we use in our operations. Due to these factors, we are not able to predict the impact of inflation on our food and packaging costs for the balance of the year. We have adjusted menu prices with intentional discipline, particularly at Bad Daddy’s. The total menu price increases at our Good Times restaurants during fiscal 2021 were approximately 8.0%, and we raised menu prices approximately 4.1% on average during the first two quarters of fiscal 2022. We raised menu prices at our Bad Daddy’s restaurants during fiscal 2021 by approximately 3.2% and raised menu prices during the first two quarters of fiscal 2022 by approximately 4.5% on average. We continue to monitor inflationary pressures and customer reaction to competitive pricing benchmarks. We expect to increase menu pricing at least once during the next six months but cannot reasonably predict the magnitude of such price adjustments.

 

Seasonality

 

Revenues of the Company are subject to seasonal fluctuations based primarily on weather conditions adversely affecting Colorado restaurant sales in December, January, February, and March.
