BOB EVANS FARMS REPORTS RESULTS

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 1 ~PRNewswire~ -- Bob Evans Farms' (NASDAQ: BOBE) net sales for the second quarter ended Oct. 23, 1992, were $163.7 million, an increase of 15 percent over $142.2 million a year ago. Net income for the third quarter was $11.0 million or $.26 per share, compared with net income of $10.2 million or $.25 per share a year ago.
 The increase in net sales for the second quarter was due to more restaurants in operation and the addition of sales from Hickory Specialties and Mrs. Giles Country Kitchens in the food products segments.
 Second quarter activities include:
 -- Bob Evans Farms and Owens Country Lite Sausage was introduced in limited markets during the second quarter. Country Lite Sausage is 90 percent fat-free and made of pure pork with no fillers, additives or meat substitutes. Country Lite is a pre-cooked convenience item in the form of links or biscuit sandwiches and is currently available in Chicago, St. Louis and Buffalo with the Bob Evans label, as well as throughout the Owens Country Sausage marketing territory.
 -- In addition, Border Breaks flour tortillas filled with ranchero seasoning, cheese, chiles, refried beans and sausage, chicken or beef, were introduced in Houston.
 -- In September, a new menu was introduced in Bob Evans Restaurants. The menu, which features an easy-to-read format, four-color photography and highlighted new items, is designed to expand the company's dinner business.
 -- During the second quarter, one Bob Evans Restaurant & General Store opened in Orlando, Fla. A total of 275 restaurants were operating at quarter's end, compared with 258 a year ago. This includes 266 Bob Evans and Owens Family Restaurants, eight Bob Evans Restaurant & General Stores and one Cantina del Rio.
