Bob Evans blames weather for same-store sales decline at namesake chain

COLUMBUS Ohio Citing winter weather that negatively affected sales throughout much of the company's operating markets, Bob Evans Farms Inc. said year-over-year, same-store sales for the four weeks ended Feb. 23 declined 0.7 percent at its Bob Evans chain despite a 2.4-percent menu price increase. February same-store sales increased 2.6 percent at the company's Mimi's Cafe concept, aided by a 4.6-percent menu price hike.

The company's same-store sales are calculated using the 504 Bob Evans restaurants and 81 Mimi's Cafes that have been open all of fiscal years 2005 and 2006 and through February of this year.

Systemwide, Bob Evans operates 591 namesake family-dining units and 109 Mimi's Cafe casual-dining restaurants.
