USA: Chicago Pizza & Brewery sees 14.5% increase in Q2 sales
Casual dining restaurant chain Chicago Pizza & Brewery has reported sales of US$18.29m for its Q2 ended 30 June, up 14.5% on the Q2 2001 due to new restaurant openings in Irvine, Calif. in August 2001 and Chandler, Ariz. in October 2001, which generated US$2.38m in revenues. The Huntington Beach, California-based firm added that the sales increase was also down in part to the increase in BJ's same store sales of US$430,000 or 3% for stores opened over 18 months. These increases were partially offset however by the decrease in Pietro's same store sales of 2.8% and the sale or closure of three restaurants in Oregon, the sale of the Hawaii joint venture in 2001 and the closure of the Pietro's restaurant in Eugene, Ore. in February 2002.
