Certain states in the United States regulate the offer and sale of franchises within their respective states. Registration states include California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin (“Registration States”). We will not offer or sell any franchises to any residents of any Registration State until we have filed and received approval for our franchise disclosure document from that specific Registration State.

For New York residents: No franchise is sold in New York by or on behalf of us until the offering has been registered and declared effective and our FDD has been delivered to the offeree before the sale in compliance with Article 33 of the General Business Law, the New York Franchise Act.

If you are a resident of a country outside of the United States that regulates the offer and sale of franchises, then we will not offer you a franchise unless and until we have complied with any applicable pre-sale registration and/or disclosure requirements in your applicable jurisdiction.
