Text too small?

Restaurant Brands’ total sales for the first quarter to 31 March 2023 increased to $308.6 million. This is up $33.2 million (12.0%) over the equivalent period last year, as sales recovered from the impacts of the 2022 COVID-19 Omicron outbreak and price increases were implemented across all markets.


Sales growth was also supported by an additional 12 stores and stronger US and Australian dollars over the prior year.


Worldwide inflationary pressures continue, albeit at a lower rate. While the company continues to implement price increases in response to these increased costs, margins remain under pressure.


New Zealand


First quarter sales for New Zealand were $129.4 million, up 9.2% in total and 7.4% on a same store basis.


Sales grew across all brands, largely driven by price increases and the easing of pandemic-related trading constraints.


Store numbers remained constant from the fourth quarter of 2022 at 143 stores.




Australia’s sales for the first quarter were $A67.9 million ($NZ73.7 million), an increase of 15.5% in total (local currency).

Store numbers were constant at 83 stores.




Sales for the first quarter in Hawaii were $US38.9 million ($NZ61.8 million), up 9.3% in total and 1.0% on a same store basis (local currency).


Hawaii trading has solidified around the new highs achieved during last year and the new stores opened last year continued to produce strong trading results.


Store numbers remained constant during the quarter at 75 stores.




California’s sales in the first quarter were $US27.5 million ($NZ43.7 million), an increase of 0.3% on a total basis, however a decrease of 4.0% on a same store basis (local currency).
