>Revenues were $94.0 million for the quarter ended December 27, 2009 as compared to revenues of $98.7 million for the quarter ended December 28, 2008. The decrease in revenues was due to a 4.6% decrease in Company-owned comparable-unit sales, lost sales from stores strategically closed and a decline in royalties on franchise sales, offset by sales generated by new Company-owned stores opened in 2009 and 2008. Domestic franchise comparable-unit sales declined 6.2%. The decrease in Company-owned and domestic franchise comparable-unit sales primarily reflects continued reduced mall traffic throughout the United States as a result of the current economic environment. Without consideration for foreign currency fluctuations, international franchise comparable-unit sales declined 4.4%. The strengthening of the U.S. Dollar relative to virtually all foreign currencies added an additional 2.7% decline in international franchise comparable unit sales.
