Thanks for becoming a member of us at present, and we admire your continued curiosity in BurgerFi. Let me start by thanking our total staff, franchisees and staff for his or her dedication and arduous work on this difficult surroundings.
Earlier than I start at present, final week, Ian Baines, our Chief Government Officer, introduced his retirement efficient June 7. Because the Board searches for a brand new CEO, I stay up for main the group on an interim foundation. During the last 12 months, I’ve immersed myself into each Anthony’s and BurgerFi and consider we’ve got two high-quality manufacturers with nice progress potential. On this position, I plan to work with our gifted groups in driving initiatives in addition to continued margin growth. On behalf of your complete firm, I want Ian the most effective within the subsequent chapter of his life.
My plan this afternoon is to first recap our quarter one efficiency after which talk about present initiatives. Following that, Mike will evaluation the quarterly financials in higher element and reiterate our 2023 steerage. Key highlights for the primary quarter embrace complete income progress of two% to $45.7 million. The expansion is in keeping with the primary quarter’s contribution in the direction of our annual steerage of $175 million to $180 million for fiscal ’23.
Consolidated system-wide gross sales had been $73.4 million, in comparison with $73.1 million in the identical interval of 2022, which incorporates $40.3 million of BurgerFi and $33.1 million of Anthony’s. Restaurant working margins improved in each manufacturers, extra pronounced in Anthony’s, the place each continued stabilization of meals prices and optimistic same-store gross sales flow-through was achieved. Adjusted EBITDA grew by 12% to $2.6 million.
Importantly, we stay assured that we’re on monitor to realize our steerage of $10 million to $12 million in adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 12 months 2023. Our focus stays on persevering with to enhance operational execution with the purpose of elevated gross sales and margin enchancment in each manufacturers for the 12 months.
In the course of the first quarter, Anthony’s noticed a 3% enhance in same-store gross sales progress. Notably, we’re persevering with to see gross sales restoration in our areas within the Northeast, which beforehand had lagged the advance we’ve got seen in our dwelling market in Florida in 2022.
The highest line momentum in Anthony’s has translated into margin growth. At Anthony’s, we ended quarter one with a retailer stage working margin of 17.9%, which is 310 foundation factors above the identical interval within the prior 12 months. Sequentially, Anthony’s margin elevated 270 foundation factors from 15.2 within the fourth quarter. This margin enchancment is a testomony to our continued gross sales leverage, coupled with continued steady procurement prices. Each had been pillars of our funding thesis underpinning our acquisition rationale.
BurgerFi. System-wide comparable retailer gross sales decreased 4% from prior 12 months. Whereas that is an enchancment from the traits we noticed exiting 2022, we proceed to work on enhancing the visitor expertise, advertising and marketing and menu innovation to extend frequency. We ended quarter one with the shop stage working margin of 12.6%, which is 100 foundation factors above the identical interval within the prior 12 months.
Sequentially, margins elevated 320 foundation factors from 9.4% within the fourth quarter. These enhancements are ensuing from steady procurement, pricing and controlling retailer working bills.
Throughout each manufacturers, we proceed to count on a discount in meals prices comparatively and the chance to proceed working margins, in comparison with the prior 12 months. That is primarily a results of stabilization in enter costs, particularly rooster wings and beef costs but additionally because of the procurement actions that the staff has been very busy implementing over the course of final 12 months. These actions embrace issues like altering our suppliers and negotiating an current suppliers to get the absolute best value.
Now I want to replace you on a number of the strategic initiatives we’re engaged on to enhance gross sales and operations, beginning with BurgerFi. We’re having lots of enjoyable with BurgerFi’s LTO program. In February, we launched the Barbecue Rodeo Burger, which received the Very Greatest Burger Award on the 2023 South Seaside Meals and Wine Pageant Burger Bash.
On account of its success, we’ve got prolonged this LTO and launched a brand new Patty Soften aversion to additional drive curiosity in our model and our merchandise. The 100% all-natural Angus beef burger patties grilled with charred jalapenos and topped with pepper jack Cheese, home-made crispy haystack onions and tangy Memphis candy barbecue sauce. It is served between two items of Texas Toast for savory candy and spicy taste profile.
Moreover, forward of St. Patrick’s Day, we launched a brand new mint shake with Oreo. The sweetened minty taste profile is a enjoyable tackle one in all America’s prime three favourite ice cream flavors, mint chocolate chip, and relies on our signature cookies and cream with Oreo custard shake. Round St. Patrick’s Day, friends search for enjoyable methods to rejoice their love of inexperienced treats. This was the right alternative to revamp our cookies and cream with Oreo custard shake and make it minty inexperienced.
Lately on Might 2, we debuted a brand new Texas Toast Patty Soften LTO. The brand new Texas Toast Patty Soften options 100% all-natural Angus beef, melted American cheese, caramelized onions and BurgerFi’s signature Fi Sauce, all pressed between two items of Texas Toast.
And eventually, in late April, we held a BurgerFi franchisee summit in Kissimmee, Florida for our franchisees, common managers, restaurant assist leaders and our provide companions. That is the primary time that we hosted our conference in individual because the pandemic started, and the power stage and enthusiasm could not have been larger. It was nice to see previous mates and meet new ones as everybody strategically aligned to convey our love of the model to our friends in new methods.
Now turning to Anthony’s. We proceed to lean into digital advertising and marketing and our loyalty reward program to drive engagement. This has been paying dividends as seen in our enhance in same-store gross sales, particularly exterior of our dwelling market of Florida, which have lagged within the restoration throughout 2022.
In April, we launched a brand new LTO with Mike’s Scorching Honey. Scorching Honey is a very talked-about taste profile, particularly when paired with pizza. The brand new LTO includes a thick-cut pepperoni pizza made with contemporary mozzarella and the model’s signature imported Italian tomato sauce topped with a drizzle of Mike’s Scorching Honey. Anthony’s well-known pressed jumbo coal-fired wings are additionally being topped with Mike’s Scorching Honey for the most effective mix of candy and spicy.
Anthony’s additionally launched a brand new improved wine menu to all its areas that includes 11 new wines and Proseccos. We’re enthusiastic about this new menu launch as wine and spirits are a high-margin a part of our enterprise.
Now turning to growth. As of April 3, our portfolio consists of 112 BurgerFi eating places, 27 company owned and 85 franchised and 60 corporate-owned Anthony’s. In the course of the first quarter, we opened two new franchised BurgerFi eating places and two areas transferred from franchisees to company owned. We kicked off our 2023 growth in January with the opening of a BurgerFi franchise in Newark Liberty Airport.
Airports continued to ship excessive volumes and proceed to be a rising a part of our growth technique. We plan to develop our presence in airports throughout the nation in 2023 with the second location in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Worldwide Airport opening later this 12 months, with a number of others beneath negotiation for later this 12 months and into 2024.
In February, we opened a stupendous new franchised BurgerFi in Orlando’s O-City West, one in all Orlando’s most fascinating locations that includes restaurant, retail and leisure areas. For the full-year, we nonetheless plan to open 15 to twenty new eating places, all of which can be franchised. Included on this quantity is one new franchised Anthony’s location.
Within the second quarter of 2023, we opened one franchised BurgerFi location, with a second franchised BurgerFi location anticipated by month finish. As part of our growth plan this 12 months, we’re excited to launch our first-ever co-branded Anthony’s and BurgerFi location with our franchisee NDM Hospitality Providers in Kissimmee, with an current BurgerFi anticipated to be opened within the third quarter of this 12 months.
Our settlement with them calls for 3 franchised Anthony’s areas in Florida over the subsequent two years. The second and third Anthony’s areas via the NDM settlement will each be the freestanding, smaller Anthony’s prototype slated to open within the Miami World Heart growth close to the Miami Brightline Station.
In closing, we’ve got two very high-quality manufacturers which can be on pattern with the buyer and are laser-focused on enhancing operations and driving gross sales to realize worthwhile progress. We additional consider we’re within the early innings of our progress story with vital white house forward.
As soon as once more, I might wish to thank all of our staff members for his or her tireless efforts and dedication. I will now flip the decision over to our CFO, Mike Rabinovitch, who will present extra commentary on our first quarter 2023 efficiency. Go forward, Mike.
Thanks, John, and good afternoon, everybody. First quarter complete revenues had been $45.7 million, rising 2% from $44.9 million for a similar quarter final 12 months. Anthony’s contributed $33.1 million to revenues within the present interval. The rise in income is a results of Anthony’s optimistic same-store gross sales, partially offset by a lower in same-store gross sales at BurgerFi.
Shifting to our particular person manufacturers’ outcomes. The BurgerFi corporate-owned restaurant gross sales elevated 8% to $10.2 million, pushed by the addition of recent corporate-owned eating places during the last 12 months, offset by a lower in same-store gross sales. BurgerFi system-wide retailer gross sales decreased 4% for the primary quarter, in comparison with the identical interval in 2022.
For corporate-owned BurgerFis, same-store gross sales decreased 6%, and franchise restaurant same-store gross sales decreased 3%. System-wide gross sales for BurgerFi within the first quarter decreased 1% to $40.3 million, in comparison with $40.6 million within the year-ago quarter, primarily because of the decline in same-store gross sales coupled with the closure of underperforming franchises.
BurgerFi’s restaurant-level working bills decreased 100 foundation factors to 87.4% of gross sales for the quarter, in comparison with 88.4% within the prior 12 months’s first quarter, primarily on account of decrease enter prices, partially offset by loss leverage on fastened prices because of the same-store gross sales declines.
Turning to Anthony’s. Restaurant gross sales had been $33.1 million within the first quarter, in comparison with $32.5 million within the prior 12 months. The rise was pushed by a 3% enhance in same-store gross sales, when in comparison with the primary quarter of 2022. Relating to restaurant profitability, Anthony’s restaurant-level working bills improved 310 foundation factors to 82.1% for the quarter, in comparison with the prior 12 months’s first quarter.
As John famous, we’re starting to see a stabilization of commodity prices, particularly rooster wing costs, and we count on working margins to proceed enhancing all through 2023. On a consolidated foundation, we reported a internet lack of $9.2 million within the first quarter, in comparison with a internet lack of $13.6 million within the year-ago quarter.
This 12 months’s internet loss included $4.7 million of share-based compensation bills, $3.2 million of depreciation and amortization, $2.1 million of curiosity expense, $900,000 of restructuring prices, $300,000 of merger acquisition integration-related prices, and $300,000 of authorized settlements included inside common and administrative bills.
Adjusted EBITDA grew 12% within the first quarter to $2.6 million, in comparison with $2.3 million within the prior 12 months’s first quarter.
Transferring on to the steadiness sheet. Our money steadiness at April 3 was $9 million, in comparison with $11.9 million at January 2, 2023. When contemplating our available-but-undrawn $4 million line of credit score, we’ve got $13 million of liquidity on the finish of the quarter. The lower in money was the results of time period mortgage and line of credit score repayments in capital expenditures, offset by money produced by operations. We’re additionally in compliance with all debt covenants at quarter finish.
Now turning to our fiscal 2023 outlook. We’re reiterating our 2023 steerage, which is the next: complete income of $175 million to $180 million, which assumes a low single-digit enhance in same-store gross sales; the addition of 15 to twenty new franchised eating places, together with one new Anthony’s; adjusted EBITDA of $10 million to $12 million; and we expect capital expenditures to be roughly $2 million for the full-year.
With that, operator, please open the decision for questions.
Thanks, sir. We’ll now start the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions] Our first query is from Peter Saleh with BTIG. Please go forward.
Hey, nice. Thanks for taking the query. Simply needed to ask in regards to the trajectory on same-store gross sales as we undergo the 12 months. I believe your low single-digit same-store gross sales steerage suggests some — I assume, a significant enchancment right here. Are you able to simply speak about what you are anticipating and perhaps when you care to share what you are seeing thus far within the second quarter? Are you seeing that materialize, notably for the BurgerFi model as we undergo the 12 months?
Sure. Hey Peter, it is Mike. Thanks for becoming a member of. Thanks for calling. Our information for the 12 months of low single-digit same-store gross sales is on a consolidated foundation. And so once you understand that Anthony’s contains 70% to 80% of that same-store gross sales calculation, we’re actually wanting on the Anthony’s numbers. So the Anthony’s numbers being up 3% for the primary quarter is definitely in keeping with our information. The development within the unfavourable pattern skilled by BurgerFi final 12 months can also be in keeping with our plan. So each of these would fold collectively properly into supporting our information of low single digits.
Form of answering the second a part of your query, will we see that persevering with via the 12 months, based mostly on the power and the restoration and the initiatives in play, particularly in Anthony’s the place a majority of the mathematics helps our information, that’s how we constructed our plan for the 12 months. Second quarter to-date is working typically in keeping with the primary quarter and nonetheless supporting that steerage.
Nice. After which are you able to simply give us a little bit bit extra shade on the commodity outlook? I do know you talked about wings being extra steady or perhaps even down year-over-year for Anthony’s. Might you give us a little bit bit extra shade on the decline there and likewise simply ideas on BurgerFi and beef prices for the steadiness of this 12 months?
Positive, certain. Good query. So on Anthony’s, as you famous, rooster wings are a major a part of our meals prices. And through COVID, they’d risen from a, name it, someplace within the mid-$2 a pound vary into the excessive 3s. We began noting in the course of final 12 months that they had been recovering to pre-COVID ranges. And within the fourth quarter, they really improved beneath the fourth quarter earlier than pre-COVID stage. So we began to get a extremely robust tailwind on our largest class of buying an Anthony’s within the fourth quarter. We noticed that tailwind proceed within the first quarter, and we’re seeing that tailwind proceed within the second quarter.
There’s different strains, proper? So Anthony’s additionally has meat that helps our toppings in our meatballs. That has additionally behaved comparatively properly right here within the first a part of the 12 months. However we even have some inflating gadgets, whether or not they be our imported tomatoes and a few of our dried items. So the combo of all of it remains to be a really vital profit within the first quarter, and we’re seeing that proceed into our second quarter and hopeful that we’ll be capable to proceed to have these tailwinds all year long.
On the BurgerFi aspect, we’re seeing some modest inflation in beef as we clip via the month 12 months, January, February to March and April, however these charges are considerably higher than we skilled final 12 months. So on a comparative foundation and even on a wanting again to fourth quarter foundation, we’re nonetheless getting a tailwind on our beef procurement from BurgerFi.
Is there as a lot confidence that we’ll be capable to proceed that tailwind? Perhaps a little bit bit much less as a result of we’re beginning to see a little bit little bit of uptick, however that is very regular for beef. We have seen beef go up in Might and June yearly for the barbecue vacation season, after which it moderates down. So our outlook for the 12 months on meals value has not come off our preliminary information, which is a considerable enchancment from 2022.
Understood. Okay. Perhaps only a few extra. Simply are you able to give us an replace in your pricing plans for the 12 months. How a lot pricing do you guys have or how a lot value did you have got within the comp within the first quarter? And are you anticipating taking extra value as we undergo the 12 months?
Good query. So first, on Anthony’s, we took no extra value within the first quarter. We took a really modest value enhance mid-second quarter lately, actually beneath 1%. We did take some value will increase final 12 months at Anthony’s, one in June and one in February, one in February, one in June. So by way of how a lot value is being carried within the first quarter, it may be a number of p.c. It may be 2% to 4%.
When it comes to pricing actions going ahead on Anthony’s, we monitor it each quarter. We’re definitely delicate to our commodity prices and having fun with these tailwinds, however we additionally wish to drive transactions. So we’ll consider that 1 quarter at a time.
On BurgerFi, the value will increase we took final 12 months had been bigger than Anthony’s. We checked out our competitor set as to what our share of pockets, opponents and different higher burger choices we’re doing, and we introduced costs to the suitable ranges to be aggressive with these manufacturers.
When it comes to how a lot have we been carrying, I’d say within the first quarter, it may be an excellent 6% to eight%. And we haven’t any pricing actions at BurgerFi deliberate for this quarter, and we’ll consider third and fourth quarter.
There is a tie-in, Peter, to pricing however then promotions. So we use promotions to drive site visitors and transactions into the shops. And so generally, these promotions can eat away at a number of the systemic value will increase that we have put in place. And that is why you do not essentially see them in our same-store gross sales fully.
Understood. Thanks very a lot. I’ll move it alongside.
The subsequent query is from Mike Albanese with EF Hutton. Please go forward.
Good morning, John. How are you guys.
Good. Thanks for becoming a member of Mike.
Sure, congratulations right here on a pleasant quarter and undoubtedly glad to see you reiterate your steerage. Simply a few fast ones from me. I believe simply to sort of peel again the onion a little bit bit extra on the unit stage. You sort of — unit stage economics, I assume at each manufacturers, you sort of get into the commodity and meals prices. However any updates actually by way of labor effectivity, labor turnover? I do know that is one thing we had talked about earlier than.
Sure. I believe right here within the first quarter and heading into the start of the second quarter, I believe we have seen some enhancements in turnover on the retailer stage. What I’d say is that they’re directional enhancements. They don’t seem to be materials. They don’t seem to be — sorry, there is a prepare going by behind me. They don’t seem to be on the level that they are driving the frequency change that the upper stage of visitor service would depend. So we’re seeing the needle transfer from rising to lowering, and we’re very happy with that. And we consider that as that pattern continues, that these visitor experiences preserve getting larger and people frequencies return as much as the place they had been.
Bought it. Thanks for the colour. After which my subsequent query, you guys have had some success up to now with the LTO choices. And clearly, simply utilizing BurgerFi for example, you are extending the Rodeo Burger. However any notable gross sales carry? I imply, I assume, what is the takeaway out of these LTOs? I am assuming it is optimistic because you’re persevering with to sort of push these ahead however…
Sure. I believe the suggestions that our advertising and marketing and operations staff is getting is that they are actually welcomed. Our loyal BurgerFi and Anthony’s, if you concentrate on the Scorching Honey promotions, our loyal prospects are actually having fun with and actually, actually appreciative of those variety choices. Are they actually driving a gross sales carry by way of incrementality? In all probability not. They’re in all probability not shifting the needle, however they actually give us an excellent platform to speak with the client and proceed that love affair that they’ve with each of our manufacturers.
Okay. Nice. Sure. I bought to — I have to strive the Rodeo Burger. That is on my listing right here. After which I assume lastly, simply regarding the franchise base, BurgerFi, what, closed 4, opened two. I imply, what’s your expectation by way of additional attrition throughout the BurgerFi franchise base? After which clearly, you transferred two of them from franchised to company owned. I am assuming you want the situation and thought that perhaps these may very well be run a little bit bit extra effectively. I do not know. I will allow you to add shade to that, however I am questioning if there’s extra room for that, primarily.
Sure. So I might say that the 2 additions that had been transfers had been very distinctive conditions. We had a litigation matter with the previous proprietor of BurgerFi and a major shareholder. And as a part of that authorized settlement, we agreed to take that and personal and function two of the areas that he nonetheless had. He had a bigger quantity, I believe, six, however they’d largely closed throughout COVID, and he had — so he was getting out of the enterprise of that, and we agreed to take them on. It is nothing greater than that.
When it comes to the general well being of the franchise base, you do see that there have been 4 closed through the first quarter. However what I’d let you know is that these 4 had been terminations. They’d really closed by way of enterprise again in 2022. And so what we noticed all through 2022 and into the primary quarter of 2023 is sort of the finalization, these terminations, franchise terminations of shops and franchisees that could not make it throughout COVID.
If you concentrate on our growth plan for the 12 months and also you sort of evaluate it to our closings, we count on 2023 to be a internet unit optimistic 12 months, with openings 15 to twenty, and we’re not projecting many extra closures. So we’re anticipating internet unit progress and internet income progress out of our franchise system.
Bought it. Thanks, and that is an excellent segue, the 15 to twenty new venues. Clearly, you guys — and I actually just like the technique of opening areas and I do not know, we’ll name it distinctive venues comparable to airports. I imply, of the 15 to twenty, what proportion of that could be a continuation of that technique?
From account perspective, John, within the non-traditional’s, do we’ve got two to — one to 2 in there?
Okay. So one to 2?
In there, however we’re in LOI. And as a part of our growth plan, you are going to see — I’d count on that you’ll see a bigger proportion of our growth being in these high-volume nice model publicity airport kind areas.
Bought it. Bought it. Okay. And my final query after which I will go away it for anyone else that desires to hop in. Simply I assume very broadly, the franchise summit, and I am glad you guys had been capable of get again and do this in individual. I imply any main takeaways from that?
I will let John remark, as a result of he actually led that summit. I believe that there have been some very, superb intangibles that got here out of it, however I will let John…
Sure, and thanks for the query, Mike. Thanks for being right here. It is nice participation from our franchisees and our company areas. It was our first in 4 years. And so I believe we — as we tried to unify the model, I’d say we had been fairly profitable. We really launched a summit survey following and acquired lots of nice outcomes and suggestions from the franchise staff regarding the path of the model and the initiatives for the model and the passion and pleasure about BurgerFi. And it was actually good. It was actually necessary, and it turned out to be, I believe, a catalyst for what we count on to see for the remainder of the 12 months so far as pleasure for the model.
Okay. Nice. Thanks for all that shade and perception there. And once more, congrats on a reasonably robust quarter right here.
The subsequent query is from Lynn Orenstein with Drexel Hamilton. Please go forward.
Hello, everybody. Thanks a lot and congrats on the quarter. Are you able to please speak in regards to the progress of your kiosk and your technique there a little bit bit extra?
Sure, certain. So Lynn, thanks for becoming a member of, and thanks for asking the query. So we launched kiosks final spring in ‘22 as a take a look at in three areas. Based mostly on its success, we rolled it out to nearly the entire company areas over the autumn season. And a few of our franchisees started adopting it within the fourth quarter. And the summit that John was simply speaking about, we really bought a variety of franchisees who bought to visibly see it which can be in distant areas and had not engaged with it prior and are signing up for it.
So I believe we’re in all probability at, give or take, a couple of 50% system-wide adoption of kiosk queues, kiosks getting used within the eating places. We constantly see a better common sale due to the AI suggestive choices that the kiosk system provides the buyer. And it’s extremely attention-grabbing, when you take our kiosk penetration of in-restaurant orders and also you add it to our first-party and our third-party ordering platforms, whether or not or not it’s burgerfi.com or acfp.com or 1 of our supply suppliers, we’re at 60% to 70% digital income technology. So it is simply one other complement.
Now I believe that there is nonetheless extra room to go. We might like to see the kiosks changing into a essential component of all of our franchises. We might wish to see the client expertise proceed to enhance as a result of the software program on the kiosk isn’t fastened. It is one thing that we reintroduce and increase on a regular basis. So it is an excellent device, and we’re excited with it.
That’s nice. Thanks a lot.
At the moment, this concludes our question-and-answer session. I’d now like to show the decision again over to Mr. Iannucci for closing remarks.
Thanks, Gary. I might wish to thank everybody for listening to at present’s name, and we stay up for talking with you after we report our second quarter leads to August of 2023. Thanks once more for becoming a member of.
