Its A vs B.
B uses simple tense for the increase in its sale. This is incorrect, since the event is continuing into the present. We need perfect tense.
Hence A.

E. recently adding many new restaurants across the country and having its sales increase dramatically, the restaurant companyâ€™s

The correct answer to this question has to be A.
C D and E can be just ruled out. reason…..whenever you have "Although" you need the full independent sentence and C D and E are lacking there.

Now B is faulty because it has used 2 different verbs unnecessarily. We need past perfect because the affect of sales increase is still there. So B is out.
