Miami, FL, April 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Grand Havana, Inc. (OTC Pink: GHAV), the parent company of Grand Havana Cafe, Grand Havana Coffee and Grand Havana Food Service and Coffee-Equipment Sales - today announced the posting of its fiscal year 2021 financial results for the full year ending December 31, 2021.

• Purchase of Panini Schmini in Q2
• SYSCO coffee invoices increases
• Miami International Airport collaboration agreement with Halfmoon Empanadas

“We are pleased with the sales performance for 2021 which continues its growth pattern into the beginning of 2022. Sales in the fourth quarter 2021 increased by 131% compared to 2020. We are enjoying a strong 2022 start with impressive growth and remain optimistic as we refine and implement our new growth initiatives,” said Ms. Tanya Bredemeier, CEO.
Ms. Bredemeier continued, “Our focus in Grand Havana is to continue to make progress on growth initiatives, enhancing our menu and adding new cafes all along while selling more coffee. As part of our efforts to continue triple-digit revenue growth, we are successfully working on new menu offerings that are more efficient. The new menu is expected to significantly reduce costs while increasing sales. Industry-wide staff availability challenges continued in the fourth and first quarter of 2022. Our proactive action plans included hiring incentives and benefit enhancements.”
Hugo Gutiérrez, President of Grand Havana further commented, “We are also continuing our plan to opportunistically improve margins in an increasingly inflationary environment based on price increases of 7% in March 2022, as well as through labor optimization that includes significant reduction of extra hours. We are also further reducing general and administrative expenses to a target range. A large part of the increases in labor costs are expected to be only short-term. We are encouraged by our accelerated sales and margin momentum so far in 2022, which we expect to continue, barring any unforeseen changes to our cost structure and operating environment.”
