••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Granite City Food & Brewery Ltd., was incorporated on June, 26, 1997, as a Minnesota corporation and became a publicly traded company in June 2000. The Company operates two casual dining concepts under the names Granite City Food & Brewery and Cadillac Ranch All American Bar & Grill. The restaurant theme is upscale casual dining with a wide variety of menu items that are prepared fresh daily, combined with freshly brewed hand-crafted beers finished on-site. The Company opened its first Granite City restaurant in St. Cloud, Minnesota in July 1999 and has since expanded to other Midwest markets. As of March 8, 2013, the Company operated approximately 28 Granite City restaurants in 13 states and six Cadillac Ranch restaurants in five states. The Company also operates a centralized beer production facility which is used to provide raw material support to its restaurants to create consistent quality and operational efficiencies in the production of its proprietary beer. It operates a centrally-located beer production facility in Ellsworth, Iowa which facilitates the initial stage of its patented brewing process. In addition, it also produces specialty or seasonal beers which are designed to attract beer enthusiasts. Seasonal beers are often tied to particular events like Oktoberfest and St. Patrick's Day. The restaurant industry is intensely competitive. The Company compete with established local restaurants, established national chains such as The Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang's, Olive Garden, Red Robin, CPK, Applebee's, Chili's, and Ruby Tuesday, as well as Rock Bottom, which also has on-premises brewing.
