MINNEAPOLIS-Despite a recent slump in business, Buca Inc., the locally-based Italian restaurant chain, still hopes to expand to 450 Buca di Beppo restaurants or more. “While its near-term financial performance has suffered as a result of the terrorist attacks, we are firmly convinced of the long-term growth opportunities for our company to grow to at least 450 Buca di Beppo restaurants domestically,” says Chairman, President and CEO Joseph P. Micatrotto.

The company says it expects to report third-quarter earnings of $0.09 per share before special one-time, non-cash charges, a reduction from the previous estimate of $0.17 per share. Buca operates 68 restaurants in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.
