Franchise Capital Corporation Announces Recent New Dealer Signups for Aero Exhaust Products

Over 100 New Dealers Across the United States Are Signed to Aero Products

MURRIETA, CA--(Marketwire - January 3, 2008) - Franchise Capital Corporation (PINKSHEETS: FCCN), which recently closed its acquisition of Aero Exhaust, Inc., a world leader in performance exhaust airflow technology and NASCAR Performance Partner, today reported the recent signups of over 100 new dealers to carry Aero products. These dealers, which are located in 20 states across the U.S., range from muffler and exhaust system specialty shops to general automotive repair and supply locations.

The new dealers are locations that, for a variety of potential reasons, are not supplied by Aero's regional warehouse distributors. Some are outside of the geographic areas covered by the existing distributors and others prefer to deal directly with the product supplier. The majority of new dealers have made their initial orders, have been supplied with product and have achieved sales.

"Adding new distributors that carry Aero products is a critical aspect of the company's strategy to increase sales, and as a result, revenues," commented Bryan Hunsaker, chief executive officer of Franchise Capital and Aero Exhaust. "While we will continue to encourage the greater part of our distribution through our regional distributors, Aero will concurrently market its products to additional individual shops and garages outside of these distributors. As the profile of the Aero name has grown, we have seen an increased interest from these types of locations, and we look forward to even a larger number of new signups in 2008.

"Selling Aero products continues to be the major focus of the company at this time, since it is directly related to revenue growth and increased value for shareholders," added Mr. Hunsaker.
