NEW YORK Ruby Tuesday Inc (RT.N) said it expects same-restaurant sales at company-owned locations to fall 0.8 percent to 1 percent in the third quarter, mainly due to bad weather.
It estimated severe weather to hurt same-restaurant sales by 1.5 percent to 2 percent.
The decline was even more acute at its franchised U.S. locations, with same-restaurant sales down 5.3 percent to 5.5 percent.
The company will report third quarter results on April 7.
