This acquisition expands our presence in the Greenville market to two company owned restaurants.”
Zink continued, “Every quarter our managers and team members impress me with their commitment to great food and hospitality despite the unpredictable nature of our industry. Their continued optimism and determination to meet any challenges that come their way are reflected in the continuing strength of both brands. I continue to be pleased with the sales generated by our restaurants, which is the direct result of the performance and efforts of our leaders and team members throughout the Company.”
