Thank you for your inquiry and interest. This is not a franchise offering. A franchise offering can be
made by us only in a state if we are first registered, excluded, exempted, or otherwise qualified to
offer franchises in that state, and only if we provide you with an appropriate franchise disclosure document.
Follow-up or individualized responses to you that involve either effecting or attempting to effect the sale
of a franchise will be made only if we are first in compliance with state registration requirements, or are covered
by an applicable state exclusion or exemption. Please allow a minimum of 5-7 business days after we receive
your application for us to respond to you.
