* Reflects average annual gross sales during 2017 for 8 affiliate-owned NAF NAF restaurants that were operational during all of 2015, 2016, and 2017, as published in Item 19 of our July 2018 Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Of these 8 restaurants, 4 (50%) had higher annual gross sales. The financial performance representation appearing in our July 2018 FDD also includes the median gross sales and highest and lowest gross sales for these 8 affiliate-owned NAF NAF restaurants during 2017 as well as their average and median cost of goods sold, personnel expenses, advertising expenses, operating expenses, general and administrative expenses, and EBITDAR during 2017 and the number and percentage of the 8 restaurants exceeding the averages. A new franchisee’s results may differ from the represented performance. There is no assurance that you will do as well, and you must accept that risk. This offering is made by prospectus only.
