The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States has resulted in a significant impact throughout the hospitality industry. The impact has varied by state/geographical area within the United States at various intervals since the pandemic has been declared. Accordingly, the operating results and cash flows at the store level have varied significantly leading to an analysis of impairment at the store level for each quarter end beginning at the end of the first quarter of 2020 and continuing through March 31, 2021. Several stores were permanently or temporarily closed during 2020 and 2021 while others are operating at reduced capacity. Based on the assessment of recoverability, an impairment charge of approximately $255,000 was recorded for property and equipment during the three months ended March 31, 2021. No impairment was recorded during the three months ended March 31, 2020.


Depreciation expense was $277,563 and $324,872 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
