• I appreciate your information, my paper is due on Monday.

Thanks Again,

Paul

• Breakfast accounts for about 33% of dollar sales and 37% of customer counts. Check average is about \$5.05 per person for breakfast and \$5.71 overall. Stewart O.

• I am working on a project for my MBA and need to know
the percentage of sales that comes from breakfast. Also,
what is the average purchase per person.

Thanks,

• In a word, YES. A \$5 fee can have a staggering effect on small regular investments. Imagine, for example, that this fee had been adopted 10 years ago by Coca-Cola, and an investor sent in \$50 a
month...for a total investment of \$6,000. Rather than ending up with 480 shares worth \$32,017, the investor would have ended
up with a bit less than 432 shares worth \$28,815. So, while the agent would have "grabbed" \$5 from each investment...for a
total of \$600, the investor would also have lost out on 10% of the capital gains. The \$600 "bite" would have cost him or her
\$3,202--more than half of the \$6,000 invested. This calculation is based on the \$5 fee. Some plans charge a per-share commission too,
which would further diminish the investor�s return.

• thanks for the info drps are a poor persons way of creating wealth abeit the expensive way but it is a step in the right direction i think ive never done it because of the expense involved and the paper work --paper work has to be a nite mare!! right? esp on and inv basis where not protected in a ira accto etc.

• Historically, most DRP's have been pretty much without fees. Those with fees even had relatively modest albeit irritating
fees. More recently, a good number of DRP's have changed from no-fee to fee programs. The MAC used to have a good investor
friendly program and made people feel very good when they initially enrolled. About 2 years ago they revamped their program so that
every single transaction with them involves a fee and the fees are either the highest or amongst the highest that I have seen in
various DRPs.

What really made it irritating is that they simultaneously launched a PR campaign touting how this new program was so good for investors and a good chunk of the financial media bought it. Pissed off a number of small investors.

On the kharma end of things, the stock has been pretty flat ever since.

• Mac Donald's screwed the small investors by tacking on fees out the Ying-Yang. For small investors it is nearly as cheap to just go through a broker now. You can request infomation from MacDonald's for free.

• how did the big MAC screw people in the drp program ?? thanks

• Lived in Ohio most of my life. Ate in Bob Evan's restraunts fairly regularly. Never thought of investing in the company until I came across the DSP/DRIP in Netstockdirect. Now I own a small stake and plan to keep accumulating.
