"Given the sales labor-related supply shortfall coming out of the second quarter and the shift in consumer demand more reflective of our pre-COVID mix, we are reducing our full year 2022 guidance," Chief Financial Officer Robert Julian said in a release. "However, we are confident about our long-term strategy and prospects."
