FT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 26, 2012) - The Dry Fried Wing Company (OTCQB: EEDG) has announced the signing of a Retainer Agreement with nationally recognized New York Franchise Attorney, Harold Kestenbaum. Kestenbaum is a partner in the Franchise, Hospitality, and Business Transactions practice groups in the Long Island and New York offices of Gordon & Rees. He has specialized in franchise law and matters relating to franchising for more than 35 years.
Kestenbaum has been deeply involved with some of the biggest names in the food industry including Sbarro, Inc., the national franchisor of over 1,000 family style Italian pizza restaurants, where he served as franchise and general counsel, as well as on their Board of Directors for more than 22 years. He has been franchise counsel to 5 Guys Burgers & Fries since 2002.
"There is no one in this game better than Harold," said Dr. Benjamin Chavis, co-founder of the Dry Fried Wing Company. "We will be relying on him and his seemingly endless list of top-shelf connections to not only manage our Sports Bar franchising efforts, but to also help bring the most qualified and appropriate players to the table in all of our business endeavors. The resources and referrals he has just made available to us at Gordon & Rees alone are already helping us build a world class management team in many crucial areas."
"There's nothing I like more than getting involved in a great new food concept in its infancy," said Kestenbaum. "Dr. Ben has put together a truly special and timely product with a business model that has unlimited potential. Now it's up to the team to execute and take it to the highest level and I'm confident that's exactly what we're about to do."
The Dry Fried Wing Company is the licensor and franchisor of "Dry Fried Wings, The San Francisco Sensation". Licensed co-branded units have opened and will soon be opening within Quick Service food establishments and Sports Bars in several key states. The Company is about to launch its Sports Bar franchising program that will employ a rapid growth strategy largely focused on conversions and acquisitions.
