2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Business Description

Industry: Restaurants » Restaurants
Compare:BH, CMG, MCD, DIN, SBUX » details
Famous Dave's of America, Inc., was incorporated in the state of Minnesota in March 1994. The company is engaged in the development, ownership, operation, and franchising of restaurants in the United States. As of December 30, 2012, there were 188 Famous Dave's restaurants operating in 34 states and 1 Canadian province, including 53 company-owned restaurants and 135 franchise-operated restaurants. Famous Dave's restaurants, a majority of which offer full table service, feature hickory-smoked off-the-grill entree favorites. It provides high-quality food in distinctive and comfortable environments with signature signage. The Company's prototypical design includes the following elements: a designated bar, a signature exterior smokestack, a separate entrance for its category-leading 'TO GO' business and a patio. This design enables it to capitalize on a consistent trade-dress and readily identifiable look and feel for its future locations. Each restaurant features a distinctive selection of authentic hickory-smoked off-the-grill barbecue favorites, such as flame-grilled St. Louis-style and baby back ribs, Texas beef brisket, Georgia chopped pork, country-roasted chicken, sassy grilled salmon, and generous signature sandwiches and salads. Tableside barbeque sauces, a number of seasonings, rubs, marinades, and other items are also distributed in retail grocery stores throughout the country under licensing agreements. 'Famous Dave's' and the Famous Dave's logo are registered trademarks of Famous Dave's of America, Inc. The Company's restaurants compete with moderately-priced restaurants primarily on the basis of quality of food and service, atmosphere, location and value. In addition to existing barbeque restaurants, it faces competition from steakhouses and other restaurants featuring protein-rich foods. The Company is subject to state and local government regulation by various governmental agencies, including state and local licensing, zoning, land use, construction and environmental regulations and various regulations relating to the sale of food and alcoholic beverages, sanitation, disposal of refuse and waste products, public health, safety and fire standards.
