“Even considering the same-Shack sales decline, coming from our small base of 37 Shacks, we’re reiterating our revenue growth targets for the year, our development schedule and the strength of our Shack-level operating profit,” CEO Randy Garutti said in the earnings release.
Shake Shack announced adjusted earnings of $0.20 per share for the quarter, beating the Wall Street estimates of $0.16. The company also reported revenue of $91.32 million, topping the $89.5 million that was expected.
