On Feb. 15, after the market close, hot-wings-and-sports-bar restaurateur Buffalo Wild Wings
- Total sales advanced a spicy 41.3%, as same-store sales spiked 13.2% at company-owned stores and 6.5% at franchised restaurants.
- Diluted earnings improved a mind-numbing 156.7%, even though $0.16 was due to a 14th week during the quarter. The rest was attributed to "favorable trends in cost of sales, labor and operating expenses, [and] a lower than anticipated tax rate."
- Management is projecting 15% unit growth, 20% revenue growth, and a 25% annual increase in earnings over each of the next three fiscal years. Not bad, not bad indeed.
