Factors at Play

Red Robin's fiscal first-quarter performance is likely to have benefitted from higher average guest check, pent up demand for casual dining as well as recovery in Western markets. This along with focus on enterprise pricing, outdoor seating capacity expansions, restoration of full operating hours and Donatos expansion are likely to have driven the fiscal first-quarter top line.

Moreover, addition of new third-party delivery partners, website enhancements and new Red Robin mobile app are likely to have added to the upside. Notably, emphasis on cost-effective channels coupled with streamline ordering and improved operational execution are likely to have boosted higher-order conversion and increased guests frequency in the to-be-reported quarter.

However, costs pertaining to digital and restaurant maintenance, Donatos expansion and off-premise execution enhancements are likely to have hurt margins in the fiscal first quarter. This along with dismal footfall on account of the pandemic is likely to have affected the company’s performance in the to-be-reported quarter.
