    DavCo's sales and earnings fell last year as the company battled the deep discounts that competitors, including McDonald's, offered to consumers in an effort to grab market share in the slow-growth fast-food industry. Sales at outlets open at least a year declined in the southern, midwestern and mid-Atlantic markets. Last year's bad weather and the federal government shutdowns caused the company to lose $2.9 million in sales, it estimated. Results also were affected by implementation of a new accounting standard.

    Last year the company opened 10 restaurants in the mid-Atlantic region, two in St. Louis and two in the Nashville area. It closed one unprofitable unit.
