We attribute the continuation of our positive top-line trend to favorable product mix, expanded catering, and specialty beverage sales which we supported through our ongoing marketing investments. Our 2012 development plans are on target with our previously guided range, and we are excited to continue expanding our national brand presence through a combination of committed franchise and license partners and disciplined company unit growth.”
