"We are excited to bring the BJ's restaurant concept to Waco, Texas," commented Jerry Deitchle, Chairman and CEO. "Waco is located between the DFW metroplex and Austin, where we have several restaurants with solid sales volumes. To date, we have opened six new restaurants this year and we remain on track to open as many as 10 more restaurants during 2012, including the relocation of an older, smaller-format 'pizza and grill' restaurant in Boulder, Colorado, to another site in Boulder that can support a larger-format BJ's restaurant. Our next planned opening is in late June, before the end of our fiscal second quarter, in Round Rock, Texas, on the north side of the Austin market." Investors are reminded that the actual number and timing of new restaurant openings is subject to a number of factors outside of the Company's control including, but not limited to, weather conditions and factors under the control of landlords, contractors and regulatory/licensing authorities.
