The company says it is rescinding next year's guidance due to challenges the Toronto-based restaurant chain is experiencing in achieving its forecasted store growth, sales, expenses and earnings.

The company, which reports in U.S. dollars, says its net loss attributable to shareholders was $459,000 or one cent per share during the period ended Sept. 30. That's compared with a $514,000 or two cents per share loss a year earlier.

Sales for restaurants open at least a year, a key retail metric, decreased 0.8 per cent compared with a same-store sales growth of 5.1 per cent in the third quarter of 2017.

The company had expected up to $285 million in sales from as many as 760 stores within the next year or so, up from its current count of 431 franchised and company-owned locations.
