I'm 1986 -- -- store opened its Cherry Hill mall in New Jersey.
So then I feel like in 1986 you're ahead of it occurred it seems like in the past couple of years the salad market -- -- chopped salad this salad is salad bar concept has really taken off.
And I would imagine is Lotta competition in the space.
I agree I don't -- writer Tina are founder and CEO.
-- He's six he really thought that.
Salad didn't need to be an add on to a deal that they could move to the center of the plate and -- your entire meal there is that lunch or dinner.
I'm we have seen you seen any number of concept whether they eat local contact -- other franchises kind of come onto the market place.
But I feel they aren't afraid to back out there.

There's issues within the adults the chickens -- the feet in all those because of the drought last year.
Really increasing prices so that's something that you have to battle every day how to sell it works deal with that.
I'm there's two different ways to -- that issue for salad bar because they are franchise because we are.
-- market -- franchise in the country.
-- really have contract purchasing power so we negotiate directly.
-- -- -- I'm we have eight contract with the -- of our planet in this the Mina valley in California so.
We didn't really get around paying some of those street crisis because the current contact her entire year's record -- -- right.
-- I think health and there are certain acts like -- freezing in the in the valley and some of the other.
On the weather condition that we.
-- careful of their bottom line -- attitude I think that they charge the the.
All -- -- are locally grown domestically on Friday.
They're not we certainly have some ingredients that are locally -- and locally grown but the secondary front door to door.
