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.

B. the restaurant company has recently added many new restaurants across the country and its sales increased dramatically,its
-Although New store sales Increase, old store sales Decrease"

C. many new restaurants have recently been opened across the country and its sales increased dramatically, the restaurant company’s

-Passive
E. recently adding many new restaurants across the country and having its sales increase dramatically, the restaurant company’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.

A is the correct answer.
