Printer-friendly version

The Sfinks Polska group, the owner of restaurant chains Sphinx, WOOK and Chłopskie Jadło, increased its sales revenues during the first half-year of 2013 to PLN 85.96 million, or by PLN 2.32 million compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. In the last half-year, the group also generated an operating profit of PLN 608 thousand, compared to its previous year’s operating loss of PLN 5.56 million. Sfinks also improved its net result by over 73% - the loss for the first half-year of 2013 amounted to PLN (-)2.19 million compared to PLN (-)8.18 million as at the end of June 2012.

During the first half-year, we increased the revenues despite the fact that we were operating with fewer restaurants compared to last year. So far, while we continue to open new restaurants, we have also closed down the outlets that generated results below expectations. Such activities, supported by further optimization of the internal processes, yield excellent results in terms of increasing profitability. During the first half of this year, we reduced the cost of sales by 2% and improved the operating result by PLN 6.17 million despite the expenses related to three large Sphinx chain marketing campaigns (TV included) launched in that same period. Consequently, similarly to the latter half of last year, we generated operating profit also during the first six months of this year. This shows that the changes we introduce at Sfinks make it possible for our group to consistently improve the results, says Sylwester Cacek, President of the Management Board of Sfinks Polska.


During the first half-year of 2013, Sfinks opened 4 restaurants, followed by further three that were opened during the summer holidays. All restaurants have attractive shopping gallery or downtown locations. Four were opened in Warsaw, and one each in Poznań, Kraków and Świnoujście.
