This information is not intended as an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, a franchise. It is for informational purposes only. In the United States and in certain other jurisdictions, an offer or solicitation can only be made by a franchise disclosure document. This communication is not directed to residents of any jurisdiction that requires registration of a franchise prior to offering and selling a franchise in such jurisdiction. No franchises will be sold to any resident of any such jurisdiction until the offering has been registered and declared effective by such jurisdiction and the required offering circular has been delivered to the prospective franchisee in compliance with applicable law. At the present time, we are not registered in any of the following U.S. states, and therefore, do not and cannot solicit franchise sales in or direct offers to these states: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
