    • The restaurant industry is watching with interest a late push by waiters and bartenders in Seattle to drum up support against a proposed $15-per-hour minimum wage law in the state.
    • The group fears a minimum wage law hike will significantly lower the level of tips servers receive from customers.
    • The big picture: The potential for minimum wage increases - either on a federal level or state by state - has been a hot topic in dissecting restaurant stocks. Some analysts see a significant bottom line pinch as companies have a difficult time passing on the extra costs to consumers in the form of higher prices.

    • Though it missed FQ4 estimates, Krispy Kreme (KKD) is guiding for FY15 (ends Jan. '15) EPS of $0.73-$0.79 vs. a $0.76 consensus.
    • The company also forecasts a 10% FY15 store count increase (driven heavily by international franchisee openings), says it aims to "achieve modest organic same store sales growth in its Company shops." A majority of new domestic shops will leverage the company's new free-standing factory shop format.
    • Krispy Kreme is upping the size of its buyback authorization by $30M to $80M. $50M is remaining following $9.3M worth of buybacks in FQ4.
    • Same-store sales rose 1.6% Y/Y in FQ4 at company stores, down from 3.7% in FQ3. Domestic franchise same-store sales +6.2% vs. +10.7%, international franchisees -3.4% vs. -3.1%. Krispy Kreme blames the international drop on "honeymoon effects" for new store openings, and "cannibalization as markets develop."
    • Company stores revenue -9% Y/Y to $74.3M, external supply chain revenue +5% to $28.4M. Franchise revenue rose slightly to $10M.
    • Krispy Kreme plans to change its same-store sales methodology. Stores will only be counted after 18 months of operation, up from a current 13.
    • FQ4 results, PR
