    They maybe right often, but it only takes one miscalculation to give all back and more. My guess that we will soon see the unwinding by the shorts. At Frost's age, the fun part maybe catching the shorts with their pants down. I wouldn't be surprised if Vit D news comes a few weeks early.

    Totally agree. I bet a lot of the franchise fee gets eaten up on the first store and by the third store P5 keeps 75% of it. I recall talking to some of the management at the Port orange store, they actually were trained in Texas. Smart young guys/gals willing to ride this train. I've been meaning to drop by the Port Orange store late on a Monday and see what sales look like. I still get reports from friends on their ticket numbers and sales have come back to reality. I no longer believe that store will do $1.3M in revenues, but should flirt with a $1M in revenues. No advertisement to speak off. In fact there's a MY Pie on the beach at the Ocean Walk that advertises.

    Maybe when they get two of our stores running the budget will be there for radio. The key here is advertisement. When we start to see national commercials, we will know we have a home run.

    Daytona beach new location taking shape. Building is up and hopefully the interior starts to take shape. This is a brand new building, so the piping and electric was rough in while it went up. That should shave some opening time off compared to their Port orange store.

    I like to see that Utah and Kansas and Florida owners are moving to multiple stores. They would procrastinate if they were not making money. Hope to see the owner again at the grand opening of this new location. P5 has to do a lot less baby sitting when these owners get to their second and third locations.

    Saturday night a friend of mine visited the Port Orange store. He got there at 8:28Pm and was ticket 10164. I thought this wasn't too bad, but store has leveled off. The second location on International drive in Daytona, is moving along. Heard they were advertising for management. This will be a brand new building, so plumbing will already be where it needs to be. I estimate by September this up and running.

    The walls are half up, this is a brand new building they will share with Starbucks. The sign is up. The store is 2 blocks from a university and hospital. The Daytona 500 race track is right up the street. The demographics here, is slightly different from the Port Orange store. However, this road gets all the traffic from all the special events that come to Daytona. The strip mall behind it has a whole new face lift. I estimate Sept/Oct for opening.

    Great news. That makes something like 180 on the books. I plan on visiting the PO store Monday night late. I want to see how the store compares to my last visit. This will be about 3 months from when they opened on a Monday. I got a free pie coming. My second one. Keep the faith. Once stores start coming on line, news will be every where. remember 99.9% of investors and customers don't even know this exists....yet. Growing pains are part of the process and breaking $10 needs some earnings. More stores mean more revenues from several things we do. Insiders bought recently, which maybe was a sign from management?

    I will update on ticket number late Monday and see how it compares from my last visit a few months back. That store was kicking butt, maybe I can get some feedback on how things have been going. I would not be surprised if a second store in Florida is leased and getting ready. I have no knowledge, here just thinking out loud.
