This presentation and the accompanying oral presentation contain forwardlooking statements, as defined by federal and state securities
laws. Forwardlooking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, expectations, intentions, projections,
developments, future events, performance or products, underlying assumptions and other statements which are other than statements of
historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forwardlooking statements by terminology such as may, will, should, hope, expects,
intends, plans, anticipates, contemplates, believes, estimates, predicts, projects, potential, continue, and other similar
terminology or the negative of these terms. Forwardlooking statements are only predictions that relate to future events or our future
performance and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions, and other factors, including those described under
Risk Factors in our annual report on Form 10K (Annual Report), many of which are beyond our control, that may cause actual results,
outcomes, levels of activity, performance, developments, or achievements expressed, anticipated or implied by these forwardlooking
statements. As a result, we cannot guarantee future results, outcomes, restaurant activity, performance, developments, or achievements,
and there can be no assurance that our expectations, intentions, anticipations, beliefs, or projections will result or be achieved or
accomplished. These forwardlooking statements are made as of the date hereof and are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts
and projections as well as the beliefs and assumptions of management. Our actual results could differ materially from those stated or
implied in forwardlooking statements. Neither we, nor any of our respective agents, employees or advisors intend or have any duty or
obligation to supplement, amend, or update these forwardlooking statements even though our situation may change in the future. Further,
we encourage you to review the risks that we face and other information about us discussed in the Annual Report and other filings, which
are available at www.sec.gov.
Throughout this presentation, we reference Adjusted EBITDA and restaurantlevel profit margin, which are both nonGAAP financial
measures. Please refer to the Appendix of this presentation as well as the our registration statement for a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA
and restaurantlevel profit margin, as well as a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable financial measure required
by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP.
