MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican restaurant operator Alsea reported on Thursday a 83% jump in its third-quarter net profit, hitting 316.7 million pesos ($15.7 million), partly boosted by strong same store sales.
The company’s revenues for the quarter were up 25% from a year earlier, totaling 17.518 billion pesos.
The company said in a statement its same store sales rose 30.5% in comparison with 3Q21, while its same store orders grew 17.9%.
Alsea, whose franchises include coffee chain Starbucks, Domino’s Pizza and Burger King in several countries, pulled in 3.48 billion pesos in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), a 10.6% increase in comparison to the previous year.
Last month, Alsea said it would invest $225 million in Starbucks by 2026, opening 200 new stores in Mexico.
