(1) Comparable restaurant sales growth reflects the change in
year-over-year sales for restaurants open a full 18 months before
the beginning of the period measured, excluding sales from
restaurants closed during the period.
(2) Average unit volume includes sales from Texas Roadhouse
restaurants open for a full six months before the beginning of the
period measured, excluding any sales at restaurants closed during
the period.
(3) Average unit volume restaurants include restaurants open a full
six to 18 months before the beginning of the period measured.
(4) Restaurant margin represents restaurant sales less restaurant
operating costs, including cost of sales, labor, rent and other
operating costs (as a percentage of restaurant sales). Depreciation
and amortization expense, substantially all of which relates to
restaurant-level asset, is excluded from restaurant operating costs.
Restaurant margin is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a
useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating
efficiency and performance. Restaurant margin is not a measurement
determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in
isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or other
similarly titled measures of other companies.
Amounts may not foot due to rounding.
