Greenfield Farms Food Provides Corporate Update on Subsidiary Carmela's Pizzeria Co's Implementation of Its National Franchising Program and Current Operations                                           


Progress on the National Franchising Program

The Company said today that it has completed arrangements for financing to fund the first phase in the development of its national franchising program for the Carmela's Pizzeria concept. This financing is scheduled to close on February 15, 2014, subject to the negotiation and completion of the definitive loan documents; and is being provided by a Minneapolis-area private equity fund with a philosophy more aligned with Company goals and the preservation and enhancement of shareholder value. The initial phase of the national franchising program is development of the Franchise Disclosure Document ("FDD"). The FDD is the legal document presented to prospective franchise buyers in the presale process. Additionally, the Company is in the candidate review and screening process for selection of a national franchising director. The candidate review and screening process has been narrowed down and the company expects to have an announcement in the short term. In addition, the Company is presently developing the franchising operating system, collateral marketing materials and supporting legal documentation.

Current Company-owned Operating Units

As previously reported, there are now four Carmela's Pizzeria units in operation and all of these units exemplify the various franchising concepts to be offered by the Company. In addition, the Company has developed plans to add additional Company-owned operating units during this year's term and into the next. Plans are also underway to develop a prototype Carmela's Pizzeria unit in the southern US, and newly-risen opportunities have made us focus on the state of Florida. We look forward to updating you as we are about to put our plans into action.

Ron Heineman, Chairman and CEO of the Company and Carmela's Pizzeria, said, "We are more than excited about our national franchising program as this is the area where more rapid company growth will be evidenced through the addition of nationwide franchised units. Carmela's Pizzeria restaurants in every State of the country. This is a vision we are committed to and have every intention to implement."

Our national franchise marketing program is quickly taking shape and we look forward to providing regular updates in the coming weeks ahead.

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2013) -  Greenfield Farms Food, Inc. ("Greenfield" or the "Company") (OTCQB: GRAS) announced today details from its planned national franchisee program. The Company is currently going through an arduous selection process to bring on board a national franchising director. The Carmela's franchising concept involves three separate business elements including:

  • A full-service dining room menu comprising a Carmela's Pizzeria and including a limited pizza buffet and alcohol and a Sports Grill. 
  • A smaller Carmela's Pizzeria with full menu dining room including limited pizza buffet, delivery and carry-out. 
  • A Carmela's Pizzeria delivery and carry-out model similar to those of the leading pizza delivery chains.

In addition, there is a Carmela's catering division as a separate business unit that prospective franchisees may add to build sales and profits. A Carmela's Treats walk-up window concept may also be added providing a separate profit center offering ice cream desserts.

The Carmela's Pizzeria management has considerable experience in the food industry including franchised pizza and other fast-food operations. Darren Dulsky, President and COO of Carmela's Pizzeria, has been in the restaurant industry since 1976 and worked for Friendly Ice Cream for 15 years as manager, training coordinator and district manager. He also worked for 8 years in the Sbarro pizza chain as a Senior VP of Operations where he held management oversight for over 130 units covering 17 States. Mr. Dulsky developed the Carmela's concept and opened the first location in 2004. 

Ron Heineman, Chairman and CEO of Carmela's Pizzeria, has investments in several service-sector companies including restaurant concepts such as Wendy's and Frisch's Big Boy Restaurants. Mr. Heineman was previously employed for 23 years as VP of HR and Training with Frisch's Restaurants, Inc. operating Big Boy, Golden Corral and other specialty restaurants including company owned and franchised restaurants in the Midwest.

Mr. Heineman commented, "We are excited about rolling out this national franchise concept building on the success we have built with the current Carmela's Pizzeria brand. We have tremendous confidence in our management team to execute the program given our extensive experience in both the franchise pizza and fast-food spaces."

Mr. Henry Fong, Chief Financial Officer, added, "We are going full speed ahead with our plans to make Carmela's a super successful national pizza franchise. The company looks forward to providing regular updates in the coming weeks ahead ."
