The Company also reported it closed on a sale leaseback transaction for the site on April 30, 2015.

“We built a new freestanding prototype designed restaurant that incorporates the same design features that we implemented in a second generation site last fall that includes more upscale finishes such as whitewashed barnwood, stained concrete floors, industrial metals and lighting and natural woods with design features that reflect Good Times’ brand position around taking a better food stand,” said Boyd Hoback, President and CEO. “We will look at our footprint and continue to optimize the size of the restaurant, number of seats and overall curb appeal as we look to build more Good Times in Colorado and position the brand for growth outside of Colorado.”

Regarding the sale leaseback transaction, Hoback added, “We were also able to access the 1031 exchange market with multiple offers on the site that resulted in what is for us a record low rental cap rate of 5.85% and a very attractive rent structure on the store.”
