CEO Comment


Eric Langan, President and CEO, said: “Total sales were up 10%, which was good. It was a great quarter for Bombshells. Same-store sales continued to rebound, new Bombshells continued to do very well, and we benefitted from the Houston Astros in the playoffs. Nightclubs did okay. New clubs continued to perform well, two moderate sized clubs were closed part of the quarter, we had one less prime revenue week, and we were comping against year ago increases of 7% in total sales and 4% in same-store sales.”




New clubs added $2.9 million from Rick’s Cabarets in Pittsburgh and Chicago (both acquired November 2018).
Scarlett’s Cabaret St. Louis enjoyed a successful reopening in late November-early December after being closed for remodeling after a fire in May.
Rick’s Cabaret Odessa was closed for less than half a month in October for maintenance.
There were three full weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas in 1Q20 versus four in 1Q19. These weeks are typically a large seasonal period for Nightclubs.







Contribution from new units increased 249.7% to $4.8 million in 1Q20 from four Houston area locations—Pearland (opened April 2018), I-10 (December 2018), Tomball (March 2019), and a partial quarter of Katy (October 22, 2019), which experienced a record month for a Bombshells in November.

All of the “first five” locations were included in the 19.2% same-store sales increase in 1Q20 and in 1Q19.

Similar to 1Q18, most locations in 1Q20 benefitted from increased traffic as a result of the Houston Astros playing through the 7th game of the championship series.

An upcoming Houston location on US 59 is anticipated to open this month, which would expand the chain to a total of 10 units in Texas.
