Strategy Primary elements of the company’s strategy include operational excellence, and human resources and training/development. Trademarks Dave’s and the Famous Dave’s logo are registered trademarks of the company. Seasonality The company’s restaurants generate higher revenue in the second and third quarters of its fiscal year (year ending December 2012) as a result of seasonal traffic increases and high catering sales experienced during the summer months, and lower revenue in the first and fourth quarters of its fiscal year, due to possible adverse weather, which could disrupt guest and team member transportation to its restaurants.
