Bad Daddy's Same Store Sales Increase 1.3%

Good Times Restaurants Inc. (NASDAQ:GTIM), operator of Bad
Daddy's Burger Bar
and Good
Times Burgers & Frozen Custard
, today announced that same store
sales at its Bad Daddy's concept increased 1.3% during the quarter over
the prior year's increase of 0.2%, which includes the loss of the
equivalent of twelve restaurant operating days caused by restaurant
closures in Colorado due to the "Bomb Cyclone" weather event on March 13th.
Adjusted for those lost restaurant operating days, same store sales
would have increased 1.8% during the quarter. Same store sales for its
Good Times' brand decreased 7.5% during the quarter over the prior
year's increase of 7.1% in the same quarter. Adjusted for the thirty
lost restaurant operating days due to closures associated with the March
13th weather event and extended power outages at two
restaurants, Good Times same store sales would have declined 5.9%.

Boyd Hoback, President & CEO, said, "We continue to see healthy same
store sales growth in our Bad Daddy's brand, even with the loss of sales
due to harsher weather that has caused store closures in both our first
and second quarters. Good Times continued to be significantly impacted
by the much more inclement weather in Colorado (both in temperature and
precipitation) versus last year and we attribute most, if not all, of
the same store sales decline this year to the unfavorable weather.
Importantly, when we compare favorably on weather our same store sales
bounce back, as they have subsequent to the end of the quarter with our
first stretch of warmer weather. At the beginning of the quarter we
opened our thirty-fifth Bad Daddy's restaurant, our fourth in the
Raleigh, North Carolina market, which is performing well above our
system average unit volume."
