Eric Langan, President and CEO of RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc., said, "We had a strong first quarter as we benefited from legacy as well as new locations, namely our 11th Bombshells in Arlington, TX, which opened December 6, and the 12 clubs we acquired mid-October and early November. We didn't experience any noticeable impact from Omicron until late 1Q22 and hope it will cycle through our markets quickly. We look forward to our first Bombshells franchisee opening its San Antonio location in our March quarter. Full financial results for 1Q22 are expected to be reported by February 9th."
