Last week the pub chain released positive results showing that like-for-like sales in the financial year to date were up by 1.2% and overall company sales had risen by 5.2%.
It attributed the results to lower costs than expected in areas such as energy, labour and marketing and anticipates reporting operating margins for the second half of the financial year of at least 10% higher than previous expectations.
This year, Wetherspoon has opened 33 pubs, closed two and expects six further pub launches by the end of the year.
"As a result of the performance of our pubs, and the full year effect of pubs opened this year, combined with lower costs in areas such as utilities, the board is optimistic about prospects for the next financial year," said the group's finance director Keith Down.
