"Our lunch offerings continue to expand in popularity. While Howard mentioned the enthusiastic response our La Boulange bakery items are receiving it is important to know that this quarter's comp growth contribution from food is not impacted by La Boulange due to this still early stage of the roll out."
"I am delighted to say in every market we have introduced La Boulange so far has been extremely well received. The product is fantastic and we are seeing really, really encouraging results. So, the strategy is being justified and we are now through 1,000 stores by the end of Q3 and every market we open we are seeing great reception, particularly around the pastries, the croissants which is the core product of the La Boulange and it gives every confidence that we are on the road to a fantastic food platform will start with breakfast, we will then enhance lunch and the opportunity to enhance the current experience for the customers and grow sales is really strong."
