ITEM 19. EARNINGS CLAIMS Introduction One question you are probably asking yourself is, "How much money can I expect to earn as a Dunkin' Donuts,Baskin-Robbins and/or Togo’s Franchisee?" There is no simple, definitive answer to that question. There are many variables that make it impossible to predict future results with any certainty. For these reasons, ADQSR does not project sales, costs or profits of stores or networks it may offer you. No employee or representative of ADQSR is authorized to make such projections. ADQSR cannot predictwhether or to what extent you may succeed at any particular location. We do provide, however, certain sales and costs statistics as described below. You and your accountant should make an independent evaluation and build a business plan for the opportunity you are pursuing, taking into account such independent information as may be available at the time. While we are not able to review or comment onyour plan, the plan should help you in making your investment decision, and in getting underway if you enter the ADQSR system. The average new franchisee generally finds the first 12 months of operation of each store to be the most challenging. There are numerous factors that may affect a store’s sales and costs. Below are notes regarding some of those factors. There may be some factors not listedbelow. We encourage you to discuss our business with existing franchisees and to retain a competent attorney and accountant to assist you in evaluating our franchise(s). If you are considering purchasing an existing unit from ADQSR, we may provide historical financial statements for the unit, if they are available. A NEW FRANCHISEE’S FINANCIAL RESULTS ARE LIKELY TO DIFFER FROM THE RESULTS STATEDHEREIN. THE SALES AND COST INFORMATION PROVIDED HEREIN IS NOT INTENDED AS A REPRESENTATION OF THE LEVEL WHICH YOU ARE LIKELY TO ACHIEVE IN THE FUTURE. THE FIGURES STATED HEREIN RELATE TO SALES AND CERTAIN COSTS ONLY AND NOT PROFITS. SALES AND THE COSTS PROVIDED ARE NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF PROFITS.
SUBSTANTIATION OF THE DATA USED IN PREPARING THESE SALESAND COST CLAIMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION BY YOU AT OUR HEADQUARTERS IN RANDOLPH, MA, UPON REASONABLE REQUEST AND NOTICE. CAUTION: SOME STORES HAVE HAD SALES AND COSTS IN THESE AMOUNTS. THERE IS NO ASSURANCE YOU WILL DO AS WELL. IF YOU RELY UPON OUR FIGURES, YOU MUST ACCEPT THE RISK OF NOT DOING AS WELL.
