“We are very excited to bring the BJ’s restaurant concept to Jacksonville, Florida,” commented Jerry Deitchle, Chairman and CEO. “Our Jacksonville restaurant is our seventh restaurant in Florida, where we have recently been achieving some of our strongest increases in comparable restaurant sales. We continue to believe that Florida will be a very fertile development ground for the BJ’s restaurant concept going forward. Currently, all seven of our restaurants in Florida are located in the central and northern parts of the state. We plan to open our first restaurant in South Florida later this year in Pembroke Pines, and we have several more potential locations targeted for future development throughout the entire state. To date, we have opened seven new restaurants during 2011. We remain on track to open as many as five to six more restaurants this year, thereby achieving our stated expansion goal to open as many as 12 to 13 new restaurants during 2011.”
