This information may involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by any forward-looking statements.

 

Factors that may cause or contribute actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, for example:

 

  · adverse economic conditions;

All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this Report. Except to the extent required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements or other information contained herein. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

KISSES FROM ITALY INC.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Kisses From Italy Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in Florida on March 7, 2013. The Company’s main focus is to develop a fast, casual food dining chain restaurant business of corporate-owned restaurants and expanding through a nationwide/international franchise and territory sales program. The Company commenced operations in May 2015 by opening its first location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Three additional restaurants, located in various Wyndham Hotel properties in the Pompano Beach, Florida area, were then opened within the following ten months. All locations, which are in leased facilities, were fully operational by April 2016. In December 2017, the Company vacated one of its restaurants due to a hurricane and has not re-opened that location. In June 2021, the Company consolidated its two Wyndham stores into one location to become more efficient. The Company opened its inaugural European location in Ceglie del Campo, Bari, Italy, in October 2019. The Bari location closed in April 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, briefly re-opened and has not re-opened as of the date of this Report. Such location was intended to serve as the distribution center for products for European locations, as well as to be used as a training facility for European franchises. However, this initiative has been severely curtailed due to the onset and lingering impact of Covid -19 in Europe.

 

In June 2021 and November 2021 the Company opened its first two franchise locations in Chino, California and Montreal, Canada, respectively. Due to the onset of Covid-19 the Company has temporarily waived any franchise fees at both locations so that the franchisees could establish operations at each of those locations.

 

The Company’s accounting year-end is December 31.

 

COVID-19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 outbreak to be a global pandemic. In addition to the devastating effects on human life, the pandemic has had a negative ripple effect on the global economy, leading to disruptions and volatility in the global financial markets. Most US states and many countries have issued policies intended to stop or slow the further spread of the disease.

 

Covid-19 and we believe, the US’s response to the pandemic has significantly affected the economy. There are no comparable events that provide guidance as to the effect the Covid-19 pandemic may have, and, as a result, the ultimate effect of the pandemic is highly uncertain and subject to change. We do not yet know the full extent of the effects on the economy, the markets we serve, our business, or our operations.

 

Except for our Bari location which remains closed, our US locations are now open and are operating at near pre-Covid revenue levels.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

  

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). This basis of accounting involves the application of accrual accounting and consequently, revenues and gains are recognized when earned, and expenses and losses or recognized when incurred. The consolidated financials include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries; Kisses From Italy 9th LLC, Kisses From Italy-Franchising LLC, Kisses From Italy, Inc. (Canada) (a company incorporated under the laws of Canada and registered in Quebec on December 23, 2020), and Kisses From Italy Italia SRLS (a limited liability company incorporated in Italy), and its 70% owned subsidiary, Kisses-Palm Sea Royal LLC.

All intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.

 

Management’s Representation of Interim Financial Statements

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as allowed by such rules and regulations, and management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These consolidated financial statements include all of the adjustments, which in the opinion of management are necessary to a fair presentation of financial position and results of operations. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements at and as of December 31, 2021, filed as part of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K with the SEC on April 15, 2022.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business for the twelve months following the date of these financial statements. On a consolidated basis, the Company has incurred significant operating losses since inception.

 

Because the Company does not expect that existing operational cash flow will be sufficient to fund presently anticipated operations, this raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Therefore, the Company will need to raise additional funds and is currently exploring alternative sources of financing. Historically, the Company has raised capital through private placements of equity and convertible debt as interim measures to finance working capital needs and may continue its efforts to raise additional capital through the sale of common stock or other securities and obtain short-term loans. The Company will be required to continue to do so until its consolidated operations become profitable. Also, the Company has, in the past, paid for consulting services with its common stock to maximize working capital, and intends to continue this practice where feasible.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The most significant estimates relate to revenue recognition, valuation of accounts receivable and the allowance for doubtful accounts, inventories, purchase price allocation of acquired businesses, impairment of long-lived assets and goodwill, valuation of financial instruments, income taxes, and contingencies. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known or expected trends and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable given the quality of information available as of the date of these financial statements. The results of these assumptions provide the basis for making estimates about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from these estimates.  

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

 

Accounts receivables are recorded at the net value of face amount less any allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts is the Company’s best estimate of the amount of probable credit losses in its existing accounts receivable. The Company reviews the allowance for doubtful accounts on a regular basis, and all past due balances are reviewed individually for collectability. Account balances are charged against the allowance when placed for collection. Recoveries of receivables previously written off are recorded when received. Interest is not charged on past due accounts. These receivables are related to the sale of our private label branded products sold in retail and grocery stores in Canada.

 

As of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, our trade receivable amounted to $14,691 and $12,900 respectively, with an allowance for doubtful accounts of $-0- for both periods.

Other Receivables

 

Other receivables are comprised of two components, a receivable from the government for Employee Retention Credits (“ERC”) and Value Added Tax at the Company’s Bari location in Italy.

 

The purpose of the ERC is to encourage employers to keep employees on the payroll, even if they are not working during the covered period due to the effects of the coronavirus outbreak. The updated ERC provides a refundable credit of up to $5,000 for each full-time equivalent employee a company retained from March 13, 2020, to December 31, 2020, and up to $14,000 for each retained employee from January 1, 2021, to June 30, 2021. The Company qualifies as an employer if it was ordered to fully or partially shut down or if the Company’s gross receipts fell below 50% for the same quarter in 2019 (for 2020) and below 80% (for 2021). As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2021 the Company had ERC credits receivable of $27,190 and $41,717 credits receivable, respectively.

 

Valued Added Tax (“VAT”)

 

The Valued Added Tax (“VAT”) VAT is a broadly-based consumption tax which is assessed to the value that is added to goods and services. The Value Added Tax (“VAT”), applies to nearly all goods and services that are bought and sold within the European Union. In Italy where the Company operates, the VAT tax ranges between 4% and 10% for food products and alcohol. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively, the Company had a VAT net receivable from its Bari location amounting to $4,839

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The functional and reporting currency of the Company’s Bari location in Italy is the Euro. Management has adopted ASC 830 “Foreign Currency Matters” for transactions that occur in foreign currencies. Monetary assets denominated in foreign currencies are translated using the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date. Average monthly rates are used to translate revenues and expenses. To date, this difference has been immaterial for the Bari location.

  

Transactions denominated in currencies other than the functional currency, such as the Company’s current retails sales in Canada for Kisses From Italy branded products, are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transaction. Exchange gains or losses arising from foreign currency transactions are included in the determination of net income for the respective periods.

 

Assets and liabilities of the Company’s operations are translated into the reporting currency, United States dollars, at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet dates. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates in effect during the reporting periods. Equity transactions are recorded at the historical rate when the transaction occurred.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue under the guidelines of ASC 606. Sales, as presented in the Company’s consolidated statement of earnings, represent franchise revenue; and food and beverage product sold which is presented net of discounts, coupons, employee meals and complimentary meals. Revenue is recognized using the five step approach required under the guidelines of ASC 606.

 

Non-controlling interest

 

Non-controlling interest represents third-party ownership in the net assets of one of our consolidated subsidiaries. For financial reporting purposes, the assets and liabilities of our majority-owned subsidiary consolidated with those of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, with any third-party investor’s interest shown as non-controlling interest.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid temporary cash investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. On March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company cash equivalents totaled $25,095 and $139,485, respectively.

 

Property and equipment

 

Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method and is charged to operations over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. The carrying amount and accumulated depreciation of assets sold or retired are removed from the accounts in the year of disposal and any resulting gain or loss is included in results of operations. The estimated useful lives of property and equipment are as follows:

 
Computers, software, and office equipment 1 – 6 years
Machinery and equipment 3 – 5 years
Leasehold improvements Lesser of lease term or estimated useful life

  

Income taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes under the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes”. Under FASB ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under FASB ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. FASB ASC 740-10-05,“Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities.

 

The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. The Company assesses the validity of its conclusions regarding uncertain tax positions on a quarterly basis to determine if facts or circumstances have arisen that might cause it to change its judgment regarding the likelihood of a tax position’s sustainability under audit.

 

On Dec. 18, 2019, FASB released Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, which affects general principles within Topic 740, Income Taxes. The amendments of ASU 2019-12 are meant to simplify and reduce the cost of accounting for income taxes. The FASB has stated that the ASU is being issued as part of its Simplification Initiative, which is meant to reduce complexity in accounting standards by improving certain areas of GAAP without compromising information provided to users of financial statements. The Company adopted this guidance on January 1, 2021 which had no impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation using the fair method following the guidance set forth in Section 718-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosure about Stock-Based Compensation. This section requires a public entity to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award (with limited exceptions). That cost will be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award- the requisite service period (usually the vesting period). No compensation cost is recognized for equity instruments for which employees do not render the requisite service.

Leases

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which establishes a new lease accounting model for lessees. The updated guidance requires an entity to recognize assets and liabilities arising from financing and operating leases, along with additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures. The amended guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. In March 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-01, Codification Improvements, which clarifies certain aspects of the new lease standard. The FASB issued ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases in July 2018. Also in 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842) Targeted Improvements, which provides an optional transition method whereby the new lease standard is applied at the adoption date and recognized as an adjustment to retained earnings. The amendments have the same effective date and transition requirements as the new lease standard. On November 15, 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10, which amends the effective dates for three major accounting standards. The ASU defers the effective dates for the credit losses, derivatives, and lease standards for certain companies. Since the Company is classified as a small reporting company and emerging growth company and has a calendar-year end, the Company was eligible for deferring the adoption of ASC 842 to January 1, 2022.

 

In the first quarter of fiscal 2022, we adopted ASU 2016-02. The most significant impact of adoption was the recognition of right of use operating lease assets and right of use operating lease liabilities of approximately $562,000 each, respectively. We expect the impact of adoption to be immaterial to our consolidated statements of operations and consolidated statements of cash flows on an ongoing basis. See Note 9. Leases, for additional information regarding additional lease disclosures.

 

Inventory

 

Inventory is comprised of wholesale food inventory at our retail operations in Canada and alcoholic beverages at our Bari location in Italy. Our US locations do not have liquor licenses. During the three months ended March 31, 2022 we wrote off $1,951 alcoholic beverage inventory since the Bari location had been closed since the onset of Covid in March 2020. The balance of inventory at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 was $10,849 and $5,270, respectively.

 

Net Loss per Share

 

Net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during the period as defined by Financial Accounting Standards, ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share.” Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per common share calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

There are no new accounting pronouncements that will have a material effect on Company operations

 

NOTE 3 – GOING CONCERN AND LIQUIDITY

 

As of March 31, 2022 the Company had cash on hand of $25,095 and an accumulated deficit of $14,009,211.

 

Management has concluded that these financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

 

It is the Company’s current intention to raise debt and/or equity financing to fund ongoing operating expenses. The Company believes it will be successful in raising sufficient capital to operate for the next 12 months, however, there is no assurance that financing, whether debt or equity, will be available to the Company, satisfactorily completed or on terms favorable to the Company. Any issuance of equity securities, if accomplished, could cause substantial dilution to existing stockholders and any debt financing may contain covenants limiting certain corporate actions. Any failure by the Company to successfully raise additional financing would have a material adverse effect on its business, including the possible inability to continue operations.

A summary of the material provisions of the Certificate of Designation governing the Series A Stock, the Series B Stock and the Series C Stock is as follows:

 

Series A Stock

 

The Series A Stock is not convertible. Each share of Series A Stock shall entitle the holder to three hundred votes for each share of Series A Stock.

The holders of Series A Stock are not entitled to dividends until and unless determined by the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

Liquidation Preference

 

No distribution shall be made to holders of shares of capital stock ranking junior to the Series A Preferred Stock upon liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company. The Series A Stock ranks pari passu with the Series C Stock.

Series B Stock

 

The Series B Stock is convertible at any time by the holder into the number of shares of common stock of the Company based on two times the price paid by the holder for the shares. The Board has the authorization to establish a minimum price for the conversion price of the Series B Stock (so that if the market price of the common stock of the Company drops below the issuance price, the conversion rate will then be based on the minimum price established by the Board and not the price paid for the shares). The holders of the Series B Stock shall not be entitled to voting rights except as otherwise provided by applicable law. The holders of Series B Stock are not entitled to dividends until and unless determined by the Board.

 

Liquidation Preference

 

The holders of Series B Stock shall not be entitled to any distributions upon a liquidation of the Company.

The holders of Series C Stock are not entitled to dividends until and unless determined by the Board.

 

Liquidation Preference

 

Upon any liquidation of the Company, the holders of Series C Stock shall be entitled to the amount paid for the shares of Series C Stock prior to the holders of shares ranking junior to the Series C Stock.

Overview

 

Kisses From Italy Inc. (together with its subsidiaries), hereinafter referred to as “us,” “our,” “we,” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Florida on March 7, 2013, with a focus on developing a fast, casual food dining chain restaurant business.

 

The Company operates through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Kisses From Italy 9th LLC, Kisses From Italy-Franchising LLC, Kisses From Italy, Inc. (Canada) (a company incorporated under the laws of Canada and registered in Quebec on December 23, 2020), and Kisses From Italy Italia SRLS (a limited liability company incorporated in Italy), and its 70% owned subsidiary, Kisses-Palm Sea Royal LLC.

 

We commenced operations by opening our initial corporate-owned restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in May 2015. By April 2016, we opened three additional restaurants located in various Wyndham Hotel properties in the Pompano Beach, Florida area. In September 2017, Hurricane Irma caused significant damage to the area, which resulted in Wyndham halting operations at its hotel properties for repairs and renovations and the closure of our Wyndham hotel locations. In December 2017, we vacated one of our restaurants in the Wyndham Hotel properties due to damage from the hurricane and have not re-opened such restaurant. During the first half of 2021, we consolidated the remaining two Wyndham stores into one location.

 

While our Fort Lauderdale location was reopened in early November 2017, we were only able to reopen two of the hotel locations in Pompano Beach in late January 2018. We also elected not to reopen our fourth location, as the damages were too excessive. If we can raise additional capital, of which there is no assurance, we intend to own and operate up to 10 restaurants and utilize them as a showcase in the marketing of our proposed franchise operations.

 

In May 2017, we completed our National Franchise License which permits us to sell franchises in all of the states in the United States except for New York, Virginia, and Maryland, which licenses we hope to obtain if sufficient demand exists in the future.

 

We opened our first European location in Ceglie del Campo, Bari, Italy, in October 2019. The Bari location closed in April 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, briefly re-opened and has not re-opened as of the date of this Report. Such location was intended to serve as the distribution center for products for European locations, as well as to be used as a training facility for European franchises. However, this initiative has been severely curtailed due to the onset and lingering impact of Covid -19 in Europe.

Our two corporate-owned restaurants, one located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and one within the Wyndham location in Pompano Beach, Florida, have fully re-opened without limitation or any social distancing requirement.

 

In September 2019, the Company's common stock was approved for trading by FINRA and in October 2019 was approved for uplisting by the OTC Markets Group to the OTCQB under the symbol “KITL”.

 

In June of 2020, the Company entered into a multi-unit development agreement (the “Development Agreement”) pursuant to which it granted development rights to Demasar Management, Inc. (“Demasar”) to open and operate up to 100 restaurants in Canada. Under this Development Agreement, the developer is obligated to open a minimum of 20 restaurants by June 17, 2025. On November 20, 2021, we opened a franchise location under the Development Agreement in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

 

In September of 2020, we entered retail food and grocery stores with Kisses From Italy branded products in Canada. The product launch began in November of 2020 and Kisses From Italy branded products were in nine retail stores by the end of 2020. Currently, Kisses From Italy branded products are in 40 stores across Ontario and Quebec, Canada.

 

In April of 2021, we entered into a Consulting Agreement, as amended (the “Consulting Agreement”), with Fransmart, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Fransmart”), pursuant to which we engaged Fransmart as our exclusive global franchise developer and representative for a period of ten years.

 

In June of 2021, the Company’s first franchise location opened in Chino, California. In November of 2021, the Company opened its second franchise location in Montreal, Canada.

Covid-19 Pandemic

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Covid-19 outbreak to be a global pandemic. In addition to the devastating effects on human life, the pandemic is having a negative ripple effect on the global economy, leading to disruptions and volatility in the global financial markets. Most US states and many countries have issued policies intended to stop or slow the further spread of the disease.

Covid-19 and the U.S’s response to the pandemic are significantly affecting the economy. There are no comparable events that provide guidance as to the effect the Covid-19 pandemic may have, and, as a result, the ultimate effect of the pandemic is highly uncertain and subject to change. We do not yet know the full extent of the effects on the economy, the markets we serve, our business, or our operations.

 

The Company’s two corporate-owned restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the Wyndham location in Pompano Beach, Florida, have fully re-opened. The Company’s Bari location in Italy remains closed.

 

Going forward there can be no assurance that our restaurants will be allowed to remain open or if open, at full capacity, or that we can achieve historic sales levels.

 

Results of Operations

 

Comparison of Results of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and March 31, 2021

 

Revenue and Cost of Sales

 

Total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $97,287 compared to $114,679 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were comprised of $91,838 in food sales and $5,989 in retail sales, compared to food sales of $104,894 in food sales and $9,785 in sales of branded products to retail locations in Canada during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in revenue is primarily attributable to the consolidation of its two Wyndham stores into one location in June 2021 to become more efficient. The Company intends to open a new location summer to replace the closed Wyndham location. Same store sales were up 30.7%

 

Cost of goods sold during the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $45,176 compared to $52,668 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. This is attributable to lower sales volumes.

 

Operating expenses

 

Operating expenses were $203,450 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $480,593 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. Non-cash stock-based compensation was $5,170 and $300,000, for the periods ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021, respectively. Excluding the stock-based compensation in both periods, operating expenses were $203,450 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $180,593 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. This increase is primarily attributable to a one-time expenditure of $18,000 in franchise operations.

 

Other income and expense

 

Other expenses comprised of interest expense was $2,293 for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $2,096 during the three months ended March 31, 2021

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the foregoing during the three months ended March 31, 2022, we incurred a net loss of $153,094 and a net loss of $2,889 attributable to non-controlling interests, compared to a net loss of $421,862 and a net profit of $1,183 attributable to non-controlling interests for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in the net loss during the three months ended March 31, 2022 is primarily attributable to a decrease of $294,830 in stock based compensation in 2022 compared to 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

On March 31, 2022, we had $25,095 in cash and cash equivalents.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $119,390 during the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to net cash used of $125,979 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The slight decrease in net cash used in operating activities is primarily attributable to changes in operating assets and liabilities in the 2022 period.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $5,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $145,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in net cash provided by financing activities is primarily attributable to proceeds of $5,000 from the sale of Preferred C stock in the 2022 period, compared to the sale of common stock in a private offering for proceeds of $145,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

We estimate that we will need approximately $1,000,000 to fully effectuate our business development plans, including opening additional company-owned restaurants and continuing to develop and enhance the marketing of our franchise concept. Subject to the continued impact of Covid-19, we currently believe that we can open at least two additional restaurants for approximately $300,000.

 

There can be no assurances that additional financing, either through equity or debt, will be available on a timely basis, on favorable terms or at all. While we have had discussions with potential investors and investment bankers, we have no agreement with any third party to provide additional financing. Our inability to obtain additional financing may have a significant negative impact on our continued development and results of our operations.

 

Covid-19 has also caused significant disruptions to the global financial markets, which impacts our ability to raise additional capital. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital due to the continued spread of Covid-19, the Company may be required to reduce the scope, delay, or eliminate some or all of its planned operations.

 

Going Concern

 

Our consolidated financial statements were prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern and do not include adjustments for the recoverability and the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business for the twelve months following the date of these financial statements that may be necessary should we be unable to continue in operation. . In addition, the Company continues to experience negative cash flows from operations. Also, if the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital due to the continued spread of Covid-19, the Company may be required to further reduce the scope, delay, or eliminate some or all of its planned operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Subsequent to March 31, 2022, we raised $480,000 in gross proceeds as described in Subsequent Events, Note 10.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Our critical accounting policies are defined as those policies that we believe are the most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and that require management’s most difficult, subjective, or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. See notes to our financial statements, Note 2 – Summary Of Significant Accounting Policies.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

There were various accounting standards and interpretations issued recently, none of which are expected to have a material effect on the Company's operations, financial position, or cash flows.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

 

The Company is a smaller reporting company and is not required to provide this information.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures – Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) as of the end of the period covered by this Report.

 

These controls are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of March 31, 2022.

 

Inherent Limitations – Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well-conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdown can occur because of simple error or mistake. In particular, many of our current processes rely upon manual reviews and processes to ensure that neither human error nor system weakness has resulted in erroneous reporting of financial data.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting –. During the period covered by this report, there were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
