Information for Stores outside of the 50 United States and Canada is not included in this Item 19.
  • The Gross Sales realized will vary from Store to Store and will be directly affected by many factors, such as the Store’s size, geographic location, competition in the marketplace, the presence of other Flip Flop Shops, and the quality of management and service at the Store.
  • This financial performance representation reflects only revenue of the Sample Stores and does not reflect any cost of sales, operating expenses, and other costs or expenses that you will incur in operating the Store, including the royalty fees and advertising contribution that you must pay under the terms of the Franchise Agreement.
  • The franchisor compiled these figures from the individual Stores’ actual reported Gross Sales for the Reporting Period. This information has not been audited or otherwise verified by the company.
  • Five of the Sample Stores are located in Canada, and the Gross Sales figures for those Stores were converted from Canadian Dollars to U.S. Dollars using the exchange rates in effect at the time of payment of royalties.
