Sales at company-operated restaurants rose 38.5 percent to $7.3 million.

Net income attributable to the company fell to $46.2 million or 48 cents per share, in the third quarter ended Sept. 26 from $54.7 million or 52 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose nine per cent to $209.8 million, above the average analyst estimate of $204.1 million, according to Thomson Reuters.
