It probably does help earnings a bit, its some extra business, but it probably hurts margins. I don't think they take a loss on it (or at least will long run) but food is a competitive low margin business.

I suppose though you might be right on "doesn't help earnings" if your not comparing it to doing nothing, but considering the opportunity cost and comparing it to investing in creating or expanding some other business.
