The change in the executive suite came as Second Cup reported a profit of $750,000 or four cents per share in its first quarter compared with a loss of $138,000 or a penny per share a year earlier.
On an adjusted basis, Second Cup says it lost $295,000 or a penny per share for the most recent quarter compared with an adjusted loss of $138,000 or a penny per share in the first quarter of 2018.
Revenue totalled $6.2-million, up from $5.6-million a year ago, while system sales slipped to $34.3-million compared with $35.9-million.
Same cafe sales fell 0.9 per cent.
