  • Diluted earnings per share increased to $1.99 from a diluted loss per share of ($0.25) in the prior year due to the increase in comparable restaurant sales and the prior year impact of the pandemic.

____________________________
1 Comparable restaurant sales reflect the change in year-over-year sales for restaurants open a full 18 months before the beginning of the period measured for comparison to 2020 and for restaurants open a full 30 months before the beginning of the period measured for comparison to 2019.

Jerry Morgan, Chief Executive Officer of Texas Roadhouse, Inc. commented, “We continue to generate sales that are well above pre-pandemic levels thanks to our operators who are successfully managing strong To-Go sales along with the re-opening of our dining rooms without restriction. However, some challenges still remain with certain cost pressures that we expect to continue at least through the end of the year.”

Morgan continued, “Our strong cashflows have further strengthened our financial position which allowed us to reinstate our dividend and repay our short-term debt this quarter. In addition, our development pipeline looks great and continues to move forward as expected.”

Business Update

Comparable restaurant sales during the quarter were positively impacted by the re-opening of dining rooms, the continued easing of dining room capacity restrictions, and continued strong To-Go sales. As of July 2, all domestic company and franchise locations were operating without restriction. The Company continues to operate with an enhanced To-Go model, which includes curbside and/or drive-up options, as permitted by local guidelines. For the Q2 2021 and July periods, comparable restaurant sales, average weekly sales, and To-Go sales for all company restaurants were as follows:

     
  Q2 2021 July
Comparable restaurant sales vs 2020 80.2% 44.1%
Comparable restaurant sales vs 2019 21.3% 25.5%
Average weekly sales $ 126,442 $ 123,927
To-Go sales as a % of average weekly sales 16.9% 14.2%
     

As of the end of the quarter, the Company had opened 11 company restaurants and, currently, an additional 18 are under construction.   During the quarter, the Company completed the refinancing of the revolving credit facility. As part of this refinancing, the borrowing capacity was increased to $300 million and $50 million that was previously outstanding was repaid. As previously announced, the Company’s Board of Directors reinstated the quarterly dividend beginning with the Q2 2021 period. The Company currently expects to resume the repurchase of shares under our stock repurchase program in the second half of 2021.  

2021 Outlook

Management updated all expectations for 2021:

  • Commodity cost inflation of approximately 7.0%;
  • 26 to 29 company restaurant openings across all concepts;
  • Store week growth of approximately 5.0%; and,
  • Total capital expenditures of approximately $200 million.

To the extent that state and local guidelines begin to significantly reduce capacity and/or re-close dining rooms, the Company could pull back on development, reduce capital spend, and/or limit share repurchases accordingly.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company prepares the consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Within the press release, the Company makes reference to restaurant margin (in dollars and as a percentage of restaurant and other sales). Restaurant margin represents restaurant and other sales less restaurant-level operating costs, including food and beverage costs, labor, rent and other operating costs. Restaurant margin should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations. This non-GAAP measure is not indicative of overall company performance and profitability in that this measure does not accrue directly to the benefit of shareholders due to the nature of the costs excluded. Restaurant margin is widely regarded as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. In calculating restaurant margin, the Company excludes certain non-restaurant-level costs that support operations, including pre-opening and general and administrative expenses, but do not have a direct impact on restaurant-level operational efficiency and performance. The Company also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which relates to restaurant-level assets, as it represents a non-cash charge for the investment in restaurants. The Company also excludes impairment and closure expense as it believes this provides a clearer perspective of ongoing operating performance and a more useful comparison to prior period results. Restaurant margin as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies in the industry. A reconciliation of income from operations to restaurant margin is included in the accompanying financial tables.
