Franchise Capital Corporation Announces Aero Exhaust Filming for "Two Guys Garage" and Upcoming Airing Schedule on SPEED Channel

TEMECULA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 5, 2007 -- Franchise Capital Corporation (PINKSHEETS: FCCN) today announced that Aero Exhaust, Inc., with which it has executed an acquisition agreement, has completed filming for an in-program full Product Expo feature on its performance exhaust product for "Two Guys Garage" on SPEED Channel and the feature has been scheduled for airing on February 18, 2007. The Product Expo features NASCAR legend Rusty Wallace, the official spokesperson for Aero Exhaust products.

Aero Exhaust mufflers are an exclusive National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) Performance product and carry the prestigious NASCAR brand on product, packaging and related media.

In addition to the full Product Expo features, the filming also included material for a 30-second commercial using the "Two Guys Garage" set and production equipment. A six-week Product Expo campaign has been scheduled to air on SPEED from April 1-May 11, 2007. All of the segments and commercials were produced by Brenton Productions, which produces "Two Guys Garage."

"The exposure for Aero's products through 'Two Guys Garage' is an important element in the growth strategy for the company," stated Bryan Hunsaker, CEO of Aero Exhaust, Inc. "'Two Guys Garage' attracts a large target audience for Aero Exhaust products -- racing fans and automotive enthusiasts. The tremendous following that SPEED has with this demographic will allow Aero to expand the awareness of its products to a large number of potential customers as more of these in-program features and commercials are aired.

"We want to make the stockholders of both Aero Exhaust and Franchise Capital Corporation aware of the airing, so they can gain an even better understanding of Aero's products as well as the type of media exposure that we are seeking," Mr. Hunsaker added.

In December 2006, Aero Exhaust signed a contract with Brenton Productions to have its performance exhaust product featured on episodes of "Two Guys Garage" on SPEED Channel. SPEED is available in over 71 million homes in North America and is considered among the fastest growing sports cable networks in the country. The agreement includes featuring the Aero Exhaust product in 54 separate airings of the show, including two separate runs in the "Two Guys Garage" "Parts Room" feature, a six-week Product Expo campaign and the 30-second commercials. As part of its association with the show, the Aero Exhaust product will also be included on the "Two Guys Garage" website at www.twoguysgarage.com.

"Two Guys Garage" is entering its fifth season on SPEED, and twenty-six original episodes are being produced for the current season. From pistons to painting, welding to wheel balancing, dyno and track testing, "Two Guys Garage" covers virtually every aspect of vehicle repairing, customizing and restoring. Hosts Sam Memmolo and Dave McBride perform product demonstrations and installations on a wide variety of import and domestic cars and light trucks, and they show viewers the right way to execute modifications with hands-on projects throughout the season.
