MaggieMoo's Treateries Part of Concessionaire's World-Class Brand Portfolio

COLUMBIA, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2006 -- Jon Jameson, President and CEO of MaggieMoo's International LLC, America's Best Ice Cream, and HMSHost Senior Vice President Vince Modica announced a mutual licensing agreement to develop airport and travel plaza locations, and the addition of MaggieMoo's to the HMSHost portfolio of world-class brands. The first site is open at the Ft. Myers International Airport and two more locations are in the development phase for Jacksonville and Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Jameson noted, "MaggieMoo's doesn't graze with the rest of the herd in the ice cream industry. We are the only national ice cream retail concept to win five Blue Ribbons for our ice cream flavors from the National Ice Cream Retailer's Association. Our ice cream is made fresh daily, preserving the best flavor possible. Freshness is essential in creating the best tasting ice cream."

Jameson added, "We are excited to be working with HMSHost because they, like us, have a commitment to delivering the highest quality products to customers each and every day."

MaggieMoo's not only provides delicious ice cream, but the Treateries also create custom-made ice cream cakes, hand-dipped waffle cones, real fruit smoothies, creamy milkshakes and malts and other delicious treats.

Modica commented, "HMSHost only offers the highest quality products and brands in our airport and travel locations, and we are proud to add MaggieMoo's to our brand portfolio. Their commitment to high quality and freshness complements our world-class concessions programs, and we look forward to a productive relationship as we continue to bring the best brands to our customers."
