As you know I have been involved in several acquisitions in the restaurant industry. No acquisition is easy. I would like to thank you for your professionalism and diligence in completing the purchase of the Hooters restaurants and territory rights for Long Island. Without your assistance and ability to keep your focus on completing the transaction, this acquisition would not have come to fruition.
You were able to accommodate the needs of both parties and help us structure the purchase so that it met the changing parameters of the deal. During this rather long process, we were able to rely on your integrity, business acumen, and understanding of the many personalities involved in this acquisition.
Once again, I appreciate your help in making this a success. As I mentioned, the restaurants are doing extremely well and the future looks bright.
