NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 29, 2005 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Quality Restaurant Ventures (OTC: QRVI), The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), Sears Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SHLD) and Gillette Co. (NYSE: G).

Quality Restaurant Ventures (OTC: QRVI) should be appearing on the radar screen of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing a significant system-wide sales increase for 2004!

News of the increased sales should be welcomed by investors, as the company attempts to move towards profitability! The financial review by the company shows that during 2004 QRVI had a 269%+ increase in system-wide sales compared to sales made in 2003. This report is the first announcement revealing the financial impact of investments QRVI made last year in two fast-growing regional fast-food chains, Westshore Pizza and Famous Uncle Al's Hot Dogs.

The report shows that in 2003 QRVI's system-wide sales were $4,677,502 compared with $12,599,913 for 2004. While the majority of the 2004 increase can be attributed to the company's new affiliations, Sobiks Sub Shops posted a sales increase of $207,803 which is 4%+ gain in system-wide sales for 2003.

Watch this company! According to the company's press release, significant increases in system-wide sales continue to enable QRVI to enhance its operational efficiency, and ultimately the company's profitability. QRVI now provides marketing, purchasing, real estate and infra-structure services for over 70 franchisee affiliates. Each QRVI restaurant concept also has a number of new franchises in construction or under contract.

Investors should continue to monitor the progress of Quality Restaurant Ventures for further developments! Late last week, the company announced that system-wide sales for the first quarter of 2005 have increased 22+% over the same period of 2004. If the trend is continued, QRVI's annualized system-wide sales should be on track to exceed $17 million.
