Noble Roman's Signs 60 Unit Area Development Agreement For Counties Surrounding Cleveland, Ohio
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Indianapolis based Noble Roman's, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NROM) today announced the signing of another Area Development Agreement for 60 units, along with receipt of the development fees, for its dual-branded concepts, Noble Roman's Pizza and Tuscano's Italian Style Subs. This newest development territory is for ten counties surrounding Cleveland, Ohio, and includes a development schedule requiring 60 new franchise locations within the territory over the next eight years. Area Developers pay a development fee of $.05 per capita in their development area, and receive 30% of the initial franchise fee and 2/7ths of the royalty from the locations developed pursuant to their agreements. Noble Roman's, Inc. retains all training and supervision responsibilities, and must approve all franchisees and all locations. In order to maintain the right to develop the territories, each Area Developer has to meet the minimum development schedule as stipulated in their Area Development Agreement. The territory covered by this development schedule has a population of approximately 3.2 million people. With the signing of this most recent Area Development Agreement, the company has now entered in to 24 Area Development Agreements for various regions of the country, which together call for the development of 868 franchised locations over the next three to eight years. Additionally, the company has entered in to 98 dual branded franchise agreements for traditional locations, 45 of which were sold through Area Developers. There can be no assurance that all the Area Developers will meet their required schedules. If an Area Developer does not meet the required schedule, the Developer loses their rights to the development area and their share of the franchise fee income on any of the units that were developed. The 24 Area Development Agreements call for the development of franchise locations as follows: Year: 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 Units: 46 117 147 161 155 109 87 36 10 The company has franchises in 45 states from coast-to-coast within the United States. In addition, it has sold franchise agreements for military bases in Puerto Rico, Guam and Italy, and for entertainment facilities and convenience stores in Canada. In past years the company's growth strategy was to expand primarily through franchising in non-traditional locations. The company is continuing its growth by franchising non-traditional locations and, in addition, it is also part of the company's strategy to sell dual-branded Franchise Agreements for traditional locations. The company is selling development territories to Area Developers to spur its growth in stand-alone traditional locations.
