Columbus, Ohio-based Bob Evans Farms’ first-quarter net income fell nearly 40 percent as slightly negative sales at its namesake casual-dining chain combined with asset write-down charges totaling $10 million. However, the brand said it was on pace to complete its reimaging program for all its restaurants by the end of the fiscal year, and it announced a deal with AVI Food Systems Inc. to develop and license a “Bob Evans Express” variant for nontraditional and onsite locations like hospitals, schools, airports and malls.
