The debt build-up is presumably chiefly as a result of opening 16 GBKs (and counting) this year.....start-up costs of each is £650K (I think) - £10m capital spending at least (plus BBC openings). I thought that the whole strategy was to run the established sites as cashcows to fund expansion (particularly GBK, followed by BBC and TRG)....as those cashflows reduce they have less left to spend on start-ups...so instead of opening 20-25 GBKs in 2009, they will open just 13....not great but not disasterous either. How many openings post-2009 they can manage....hard to say but I'd expect 56 GBKs to be throwing off plenty of cash so am not despondant over the long-term.

It isn't that customers will never return, it is the price of them not coming in the short term. Debt is increased to £13m from £9.5m and interest charges have dented profits; that is worrign going forward against falling t'over. A couple of other points: landlord delays so stores won't open til well into 2009: what; it is new stores that were driving growth? And this from last results: "The Tootsies restaurants in shopping centres and leisure parks in particular continue to generate excellent levels of restaurant EBITDA." IF so, then 'in particular' they are presumbaly now leading the company into cashflow/debt difficulties. Not de-ramping, trying as ever to understand.

Gucci hope your not holding the chart is awful..and theres me thinking 200p was the support.. These could fall to 60p and still be expensive.

Glad I sold at 400p earlier this year. THe recent downturn has been driven by anticpated less disposable income as credit squeezes. The profits warning for next year is just being careful but the Tootsie's results show that the company had indeed exposed itself so that any fall in demand would have a big impact. No doubt the price will fall far too much in some PI eyes, but any company that cannot be sure of growth over the next 12 months cannot be sure if it will ever grow, and I wouldn't touch these now. I wish Momentum Investor would report on its bad tips as well as it's good ones.

Never eaten a BK birger for obvious reasons but I have been to CH for one. 200p looks like the obvious support.

Last year they announced on 15.11.2006 that interim results would be announced on 22.11.2006 which they were. No annoucement yet for this year but expect will be shortly.

Have you ever eaten a BK burger? I have and it aint what I call food....my local BK has closed, grotty little hole that it was and is being reopened as a Nando's chicken outlet. The stuff GBK is peddling is far superior.

When you read that burgerking is selling burgers for 99p it emphasises the fact that there are just too many restaurants in the High street and something has got to give..Clapham are selling burgers for 550p which is 5 times the price of a bugerking burger.

Other restaurant chains had been looking to float and appear to have shelved their plans as the market has balked at their lofty target valuations. (Goucho Grill, Wagamana, etc). NB I am not saying that they are comparable, just in the same sector. Also FT's Lex ran a US subprime(!) related article today, sounding a cautionary note on trading down and how discretionary this spend might be: Casual dining crunch Published: November 16 2007 09:37 | Last updated: November 16 2007 09:37 Drive down almost any stretch of suburban US highway and you'll find it – the uninspiring string of restaurants, each touting a slightly different version of fajitas or mozzarella sticks. Right now these casual dining outfits are feeling the pinch. Five years ago, it was tough to get a Thursday night table at Applebee's. Rapid expansion boosted supply and made casual dining spots more affordable for blue-collar workers. But a spike in gas prices and housing weakness last year started to scare off diners, just as margins were squeezed by rising labour and food costs. Cheaper fast-food chains are also stealing customers at the low end. A 44 per cent drop in Ruby Tuesday's shares has led a slide in sector valuations this year, and there is no clear recipe for relief. The buy-out premium that once supported shares has vanished, so companies have added leverage, sold assets, or used cash left over from curtailed expansion plans to fund buy-backs. Private equity firms, generally active in the sub sector, have passed on Applebee's and Rare Hospitality. With financial options growing scarce, companies have turned to fundamentals. Pancake-pusher IHOP, which is buying Applebee's, aims to generate more cash by franchising restaurants. Brinker has already done that with Chili's, and others are weighing the strategy. Some are offering discounts to boost traffic, which hurts margins and does not necessarily build loyalty. They should focus on their take-out operations, now about 10 per cent of sales, which could keep customers from trading down to fast food. IHOP recently said it could not tell why trade has weakened. But the recent push by McDonald's and Burger King on breakfast items provides an educated guess. Starbucks' disclosure that US traffic has slowed only adds fears. Even expensive coffees, which some argued were recession-proof "affordable luxuries," may be quite expendable.

Markets generally weak.....fears about consumer spending..... Shouldn't be a big problem for CPH...their menu is hardly expensive.

Based on last years timings interim results should be out later this month, hopefully we will see a run up before/following the announcement.

Well SCSW finally added this to their Growth Portfolio and gained over 10% with bounce up from 295p - no surprise there. Easy - just ramp up four of 5 stocks and add whichever one outperforms during the month. Maybe I'm a little cynical but at least this ensures regular update coverage from now on and SCSW is widely read tipsheet. RM

Ate at the York outlet Tuesday night - with sister, mum and bro-in-law. Food 'n' service impressive....in and out in an hour....all agreed it would be good to go again.....working through the whole menu sounds like a challenge!!! Not very busy mind - about 12 in there when we arrived at 7pm and about 6 when we left....it was Tuesday though. My sister is going again on friday night to start off a works night out (6 of them going), I'll ask her how busy it is...hopefully it will be jam-packed. Anyway, should get some funds through from RAS this week....a bit of that is almost certain to find itself invested in CPH....
