Chester’s Signs Multi-Restaurant Franchise Deal with Circle K
-Chester's solidifies its leadership in the convenience store space with recent agreement-

BIRMINGHAM, AL (April 24, 2006) –
Chester's International, LLC, a global fried chicken quick service restaurant chain, announces its first restaurant opening through a franchise agreement with Circle K Stores, Inc.

Circle K has signed two franchise agreements that include the opening of two franchised Chester's locations at Circle K corporate stores. The first restaurant opened in-line with a Circle K located in Star Valley, AZ on April 21. The restaurant features seating for 30 dine-in customers and offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu with drive-thru service. A second Chester's location is scheduled to open in May within a Circle K corporate store in Huachuca City near Tucson, AZ.

"This partnership is a starting point for two strong brands in the c-store industry - one of the largest operators of c-stores and one of the largest foodservice providers" said Russ Cooper, Chester's president. "It makes great business sense and we're happy to grow with Circle K through this franchising alliance."

Star Valley will be the starting point between Circle K Stores, Inc. owned by parent company Alimentation Couche-Tard, and Chester's International, LLC that involves company-owned Circle K locations.

Chester's is aggressively expanding its franchise program in c-stores, a category it dominates as the top chicken foodservice provider. Chester's has more than 1,500 locations worldwide, and more than 1,000 licensed and franchise locations in c-stores and travel plazas throughout the country. The company began offering franchises in late 2004 and has awarded 83 franchise stores to date. As part of Chester's Project 500, the company plans to secure 500 franchises by 2010.

Cooper adds: "We are looking to continue expansion in convenience stores and build upon our providing a great return on investment with flexible store designs, a great -tasting product and our compatibility with many other foodservice concepts."
