Transcript Bob's Big Boy Family Restaurants yet. Eight million jars of sauces and dressings were sold in supermarkets, and profits rose sharply. Expansion of Bob's popular, high-quality coffee shops will continue on both coasts during fiscal 1976. HOT SHOPPES SERVICE RESTAURANTS earned a small profit for the year against significant losses in fiscal '74. Three units were closed and sold, and three more at good locations were converted to other Marriott operations. Customer counts have increased. Ten units, all in strong locations, are forecast to improve further on profits in '76. HOT SHOPPES CAFETERIAS experienced lower traffic counts in fiscal 1975. National retail sales slid in the recession, and the cafeterias—mostly in shopping malls—slid with them. Management moved swiftly to improve operations, three unprofitable locations were closed, and traffic declines were stemmed in the fourth quarter. A strong rebound is indicated for '76. In fiscal 1975 Marriott took its cafeteria concept overseas for the first time, in a test of foreign markets. Two units were opened, near Paris and in Nantes, France. Start-up costs were high but customer acceptance has been encouraging. Further expansion is awaiting evaluation of current operating experience. ROY ROGERS FAMILY RESTAURANTS increased sales with extensive expansion and conversions. Profits were up only moderately due mostly to the short-term costs of opening new units in the highly competitive fast foods field. Rising beef and utility costs also limited profit improvement. The division expanded by 50%, ending the year with 97 company-owned units. In the Washington, D.C. area, 27 units were converted from Jr. Hot Shoppes in response to the public's enthusiasm for the Roy Rogers menu concept of roast beef sandwiches, chicken, and hamburgers. There are now 13 Jr. Hot Shoppes remaining in the Washington-Baltimore area. Twelve units were opened in new markets for Roy Rogers, primarily in the New Jersey- Long Island, N.Y. region where expansion will continue next year. FAIRFIELD FARM KITCHENS had an excellent year. Aided by new operating efficiencies and continually increasing volume from Marriott operations in the Eastern half of the United States, "FFK" recorded excellent gains in both sales and profits. The fledgling venture to market Marriott products to the retail and food service industries also made considerable developmental strides in fiscal 1975, and this should have a favorable effect on profitability in '76. In the Washington, D.C. area Marriott-brand refrigerated salad dressings, FFK's "Home- Style Turkey with Fixin's" (picture opposite) and a Marriott birthday cake are available at many supermarkets and department stores. Some of these products also are moving into Midwest, New York and Florida markets.
