16:37 EDTDRIDarden announces restructuring, strategic actions
Darden Restaurants announced several leadership changes and strategic actions in order to increase the focus on restaurant operations and improve the guest experience. These changes will better position Darden to win the battle for market share across all of its concepts. In addition to improving focus and providing better support for the company's restaurants, the announcement will lead to approximately $20M in annualized cost savings through a reduction in General and Administrative expenses. The company expects savings of approximately $10M this fiscal year which will mitigate anticipated near-term cost increases in dairy, beef and other commodities. Darden Interim CEO Gene Lee stated, "Winning market share, improving same-restaurant-sales and achieving best-in-class profitability are our key operational objectives going forward, so we need to fine-tune our approach to the business to make sure we are laser-focused on these initiatives. The actions announced today are critically important steps in becoming more efficient in how we support the restaurants. This includes limiting the number of distractions that divert our attention from what matters most – continually working to improve the food and service we offer our guests."
