MIAMI, April 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GRILLiT, Inc. (the "Company" or "GRILLiT") (OTC: GRLT) today announced that the Company has executed an option agreement granting the exclusive right to a master franchise agreement for the State of California. The agreement calls for the total purchase price of $125,000 cash, plus the right to receive a 4% royalty commitment on all gross revenues, and a $12,500 up front fee for each franchised location established in California.
The Company has already received $75,000 cash for the purchase of the exclusive option, with the remaining balance of $50,000 due upon the Company completing the final franchise eligibility requirements for the State of California, which it expects to conclude within the second quarter of 2014. The option purchase agreement was executed on April 1, 2014. The company will recognize the $75,000 payment as revenue in the second quarter of this year.
"California is another critical State for building the GRILLiT brand, especially given California's health-conscious nature," said Ghazi Hajj, the Company's CEO.
"This comes on the heels of signing master franchise agreements for the States of Texas and Arizona. The master franchise agreements provide the master franchisee the exclusive right to sell franchise licenses to potential GRILLiT owner/operators in that State, who in turn pay a license fee and royalties to the Company and the master franchisee. We have signed on a good, experienced team of master franchisees who are working aggressively to establish franchise owner/operators in their respective territories."
As announced on March 18, 2014, the Company changed its name from Grillit, Inc. to Healthy & Tasty Brands Corporation, and is in the process of effectuating the name change with FINRA.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
