GRANTS PASS, Ore., USA – Dutch Bros Inc. one of the fastest-growing brands in the food service and restaurant industry in the United States by location count, yesterday reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. Joth Ricci, Chief Executive Officer and President of Dutch Bros Inc., stated, “We surpassed two major brand milestones during the second quarter: opening our 600th shop and exceeding $1 billion in systemwide sales2 on a trailing twelve-month basis1.
These milestones demonstrate the strength of our people-first culture and our new shop development pipeline. We have opened 65 shops in the first half of 2022 and are on track for at least 130 shop openings for the full year.
Our newest shops are exhibiting predictable and consistent sales and upward margin progression, while our 2020 and 2021 classes are generating annualized volumes that are 10% higher than our system average. As we pursue strategic growth from west to east, Dutch Bros’ portability and brand acceptance have been outstanding.”
He added, “Like many of our peers, the macro-economic environment is impacting various aspects of our business, and our company-operated shop margins continue to be pressured by record inflation in the second quarter. That said, our team accelerated efforts to increase productivity in the middle of our P&L, and we took a 3% price increase in the second quarter. These actions contributed to 630bps of sequential improvement in company-operated shop margins from 18.3% to 24.6% when compared to the first quarter of 2022. We are evaluating further menu pricing action as needed in the back half of the year.”
He concluded, “We celebrated our annual Drink One for Dane fundraiser on May 20, and it was the second-largest day by transaction-count in our history. In 2022 we raised $2.3 million, and since 2018, we have raised over $8.3 million. We are upholding our mission to contribute to communities, making a massive difference, one cup at a time.”
