Total Royalty Pool system sales for the quarter increased due to the continued re-opening of the economy and also more non-traditional locations reopened as the quarter progressed, the company reported.
“Our first quarter results demonstrate the strong value rooted in our brands,” said Paul Goddard, CEO, Pizza Pizza Limited. “In addition to increased sales through our already strong pick-up and delivery business, our brands experienced an increase in sales from walk-in traffic and the reopening of key, non-traditional stores, especially in sports venues, as government restrictions were lifted.
“We are optimistic that this momentum will continue as almost all government restrictions have been removed and customers are feeling more comfortable visiting our restaurants.”
