Dalman: That was a great meeting Lei.

Lei: Thanks Dalman. By the way, I wanted to ask you something. Have you noticed the two new franchise operations that offer food and beverages similar to that of Sandwich Blitz? These companies may not have entered the market yet, but, I am sure it is only a matter of time.

Lei: You know we have the resources to open two additional locations if good places can be found. The recent economic downturn has adversely affected the occupancy rates in the larger office parks that have historically been good locations for their shops. We could always look at other cities but we have never considered this.

Dalman: Lei, do you really think we should expand again? If we do, should it be a small expansion or should they try something on a larger scale.
