Revolution Bars has said sales were up 3.5% for the 26 weeks ending 28 December 2019. When adjusted for exceptional items, pre-tax profits were up 20.5%.

“We have continued to make significant progress revitalising the Revolution brand and further improving the performance of Revolución de Cuba,” said CEO Rob Pitcher.

“Having stabilised the business in FY19, FY20 is about consolidation and the benefits of the many actions that we have taken are beginning to be realised.

“H2 FY20 has started encouragingly and should we continue on our current trajectory then the Board is confident the business will be well-positioned to resume site expansion in FY21.”
