Jack in the Box (JACK) posted an EPS of $1.70. Jack in the Box’s EPS growth was driven by the expanded EBIT margin, the lower effective tax rate, and share repurchases. Jack in the Box’s EBIT margin has improved from 15.5% to 26.4% due to refranchising company-owned restaurants, sales leverage from positive SSSG (same-store sales growth), and lower G&A (general and administrative) costs. The improvement was partially offset by increased labor expenses and higher repair and maintenance costs.
After posting systemwide negative SSSG (same-store sales growth) for the last five quarters, Jack in the Box (JACK) returned to the positive territory with an SSSG of 0.5%. During the quarter, the company posted an SSSG of 0.6% in company-owned restaurants. In franchised restaurants, the SSSG was at 0.5%. In company-owned restaurants, the SSSG was driven by 2.6% growth in the average check size due to more menu items and a favorable product mix. However, the transaction declined 2.0%, which partially offset some of the increase in the SSSG.
