Guru Investment Theses on Carrols Restaurant Group Inc

Keeley Funds Comments on Carrol’s Restaurant Group - Nov 16, 2015

Another strong performer during the quarter was Carrol’s Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:TAST) which rose over 14 percent and added 16 basis points of performance to the Fund during the quarter. The company has exceeded the accretion goals from its prior acquisition of a large Burger King franchisee. In addition, Burger King has been much more nimble in adjusting its menu versus McDonald’s, thereby taking share as consumer tastes have evolved. With the strong stock performance and the shares nearing fair value, we have been trimming our position.
