Bloomin’ Brands same-store sales fall 1.3%

Outback Steakhouse owner attributes decline in part to weak casual-dining environment

Same-store sales fell 1.3 percent at Bloomin’ Brands Inc.’s four concepts in the U.S. amid a weak casual-dining environment, particularly on weekends, the company said Tuesday.

Same-store sales at all but one of the company’s concepts fell in the third quarter ended Sept. 27, including a 2-percent decline at Carrabba’s Italian Grill and a 6.1-percent decline at Bonefish Grill. The only increase came from Outback Steakhouse, where same-store sales rose a modest 0.1 percent.
