This website and the franchise sales information on this site do not constitute an offer to sell a franchise. The offer of a franchise can only be made through the delivery of a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Currently, the following states regulate the offer and sale of franchises:  Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.  If you are a resident of one of these states, or if you wish to operate a franchise in one of these states,  we will not offer you a franchise unless and until we have registered the franchise (or obtained an applicable exemption from registration) and compiled with the pre-sale disclosure requirements that apply in your jurisdiction.
