Selling Mode… OSI Restaurant Partners (Tampa, FL) plans to sell its Cheeseburger in Paradise brand to an
       entity controlled by the chain’s president, Steve Oyerholt, for $2.0 million. The Company sold six-unit Roy’s

       Steakhouse brand. There are 36 Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurants located in the Midwest and Mid-
Atlantic region.

Home Cooking… The latest consumer price index (CPI) results from the federal government revealed that price
inflation in April rose faster for food away from home as compared with food at home, a trend that could push
consumers away from restaurants. Grocery store year-over-year changes in prices increased 2.3% in April.
Restaurant food prices rose 4.6% in April versus a year ago. Many restaurants have been forced to raise menu
prices to combat slowed guest traffic and rising operating cost. The last time the CPI for food at home declined on
a sequential basis to near current levels was in May 2002, which was followed by a months-long decline in
Wachovia’s restaurant stock index.

relationship with Nestle, which is developing ready-to-drink beverages under the Jamba brand for sale in grocery
and other retail stores.
In other news, the Company will start a refranchising initiative that is expected to involve up to 150 Jamba Juice
store locations primarily outside of California. The Company expects many of the refranchising transactions to
include a development agreement.

Refranchising… Jack in the Box (San Diego, CA) refranchised 46 restaurants in California and Texas as part of
    its plan to have 70% – 80% of its system franchised by fiscal 2013. Three existing franchisees purchased a
    total of 20 units in Los Angeles, CA, and the Company refranchised three restaurants in San Jose. In

What Could be Better… Haagen-Dazs (Minneapolis, MN) plans to grow its business by taking advantage of
           opportunities resulting from the recession. The chain now offers a $10,000 discount off its $30,000
           franchise fee to operators with at least two years of restaurant industry experience. Haagen-Dazs is also
           targeting locations in high-traffic, pedestrian-friendly areas like shopping malls and outdoor lifestyle
centers, transportation hubs and tourist attractions. Locations for expansion include Northern California and the
Bay Area, the corridor from Maryland to Virginia through Washington, DC, and Hawaii. The brand also wants to
