The U.S. Federal Trade Commission, certain states within the U.S.A., and certain other countries have laws governing the offer and sale of franchises. If you reside in a jurisdiction where one of these laws is in effect, we may have an obligation to register our franchise offering, to provide you with specified information, and/or to meet other conditions before offering you a franchise. We intend to fulfill the applicable requirements wherever we offer franchises. The information presented here is not intended as the offer of a franchise; if nevertheless deemed to constitute an offer, we do not intend it to be made in any jurisdiction where it would be improper. Within the U.S.A., we offer franchises solely by means of our Franchise Disclosure Document.
