California Pizza Kitchen reported revenues increased 22% to US$67.6m for the fourth quarter ended 30 December, 2001, versus US$54.9m in the Q4 of 2000. Comparable restaurant sales increased approximately 2% for the three-month period. The increases in comparable restaurant sales were comprised of a 3% increase in average check due to pricing adjustments implemented earlier in the year. The difference in comparable sales resulted from a slight decline in customer counts. Based on these preliminary results, the companies management say they are comfortable with fourth quarter 2001 earnings per share guidance at the high-end of the previously announced US$0.14 to US$0.16 range.
