The restaurant chain (Ticker: JAX) posted a fourth-quarter loss of almost $700,000 as same-store sales fell 8.7 percent. CEO Lonnie Stout and his team are taking some small steps to goose those numbers in '09.
The Company recently implemented a modest menu price increase of approximately 2%, which it believes will help to mitigate somewhat the earnings pressures resulting from declining same store sales. J. Alexander’s Corporation has also initiated several cost reduction measures which it does not believe will negatively affect guest experiences or perceptions.
