(1) Comparable restaurant sales growth reflects the change in year-over-year sales for restaurants open a full 18 months before the beginning of the period measured, excluding sales from restaurants closed during the period.
(2) Average unit volume includes sales from Texas Roadhouse restaurants open for a full six months before the beginning of the period measured, excluding any sales at restaurants closed during the period.
(3) Average unit volume restaurants include restaurants open a full six to 18 months before the beginning of the period measured.
(4) Restaurant margin represents restaurant sales less restaurant operating costs, including cost of sales, labor, rent and other operating costs (as a percentage of restaurant sales). Depreciation and amortization expense, substantially all of which relates to restaurant-level asset, is excluded from restaurant operating costs. Restaurant margin is widely regarded in the restaurant industry as a useful metric by which to evaluate restaurant-level operating efficiency and performance. Restaurant margin is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative, to income from operations or other similarly titled measures of other companies.
