“Our first month of fiscal 2018 allowed us the opportunity to grow the franchise network conservatively based on upcoming production efforts and schedules. We continue securing premiere locations for franchisees with limited resources available to us in the form of actual units in the field. We anticipate even better results once we begin installations during the second quarter of fiscal 2018,” stated Nicholas Yates, Chairman and Founder. “Our ability to promote the product with actual case studies in the form of location testimonials and media coverage opens up opportunity on so many levels. We are also pleased with our efforts to raise a total of approximately $3 million in the form of equity and will decide if this is to continue on the same set of terms in the coming weeks. We are extremely excited about the prospects that lay ahead and look forward to executing in this transition year.”
