Monthly Sales Reports

Updated as of October 3, 2019:a monthly sale report is released around the third business day of the month
Same-store sales refer to the difference in revenue generated by our existing outlets that have been open for at least 19 months, compared to an identical period in the previous year.

Summary

In September, Toridoll saw its net sales* increased by 15.1%, while same-store sales were up 9.2%. Marugame Seimen's same-store sales were up 11.3%, compared with the same month last year. The results likely reflect one less weekend day during this month when compared to the same month last year, and we estimate the day-of-the-week effect of being approximately 0.6%. It should also be noted that we added thirteen new locations in September.

As a part of our continuous effort to boost revenue and footfall, Marugame Seimen continued with the campaign “Kamatama Festival.” The promotional items, Kamatama Cream Udon and Kamatama Cheese Udon have proven popular since their launch in August.

The number of customers has increased throughout September, up 12.1% year-on-year after reflecting the day-of-the-week effect. Much of this was due to losses from typhoons during the same period last year, the increased TV ad volume, and appearances on popular TV shows.

Focusing on customer satisfaction, we aim to develop a steady stream of new and high value-added products. These will help us reach larger and more targeted audiences as well as build brand awareness using digital marketing strategies.

We strive to maintain the highest standards of food quality and customer service. Maintaining the safety and cleanliness of our restaurants is also one of our priorities so that we can provide a clean and safe eating space for our employees and customers.

※ Please note that the sales volume and number of stores are of Toridoll stores in Japan unless otherwise specified.
