Developer agrees that Franchisor will incur no liability to Developer for site selection assistance provided by Franchisor, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct. 4.03. Site Selection. -------------- A. Franchisor establishes, from time to time, site selection criteria for demographic characteristics, traffic patterns, parking, character of the neighborhood, competition from other businesses in the area, the proximity to other businesses (including other Cinnabon Bakeries), the nature of other businesses in proximity to the site and other commercial characteristics (including the purchase price, rental obligations and other lease terms for the proposed site) and the size, appearance, other physical characteristics, and a site plan of the premises.

B. Franchisor's approval of a site for a Franchised Location is not a representation or a promise by Franchisor that a Franchised Bakery at that Franchised Location will achieve any particular sales volume or that it will be profitable. Similarly, Franchisor's approval of a site and its refusal to approve other sites is not a representation or a promise that the Franchised Location will have a higher sales volume or be more profitable than a site which Franchisor did not approve.

Developer shall, at Franchisor's option and request, execute a written guarantee of the transferee's obligations under the Agreement, which such guarantee shall not exceed a period of three (3) years from the date of transfer; and K. The Developer or the transferee shall have paid to Franchisor a transfer fee of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000), to cover Franchisor's administrative expenses in connection with the transfer, but no development fees shall be charged by Franchisor for a transfer. If the transferee is a corporation formed by Developer for the convenience of ownership and in which the Developer is the sole shareholder, no transfer fee shall be required. 6.04. Grant of Security Interest. Developer shall grant no security -------------------------- interest in this Agreement unless the secured party agrees that, in the event of any default by Developer under any documents related to the security interest, (i) Franchisor shall be provided with notice of default and be given a reasonable time within which to cure said default, (ii) Franchisor shall have the right and option to be substituted as obligor to the secured party and to cure any default of Developer or to purchase the rights of the secured party upon payment of all sums then due to such secured party, 14 <PAGE> except such amounts which may have become due as a result of any acceleration of the payment dates based upon the Developer's default, and (iii) such other requirements as Franchisor, in its sole discretion, deems reasonable and necessary to protect the integrity of the Proprietary Marks and the CINNABON System. 6.05. Death or Mental Incapacity. Upon the death or mental incapacity of -------------------------- any person with an interest in this Agreement or in Developer, the executor, administrator, or personal representative of such person shall transfer his interest to a third party approved by Franchisor within twelve (12) months after such death or mental incapacity. Such transfer, including, without limitation, transfer by devise or inheritance, shall be subject to the same conditions as any inter vivos transfer. However, in the case of transfer by devise or ----- ----- inheritance, if the heirs or beneficiaries of any such person are unable to meet the conditions in this Section VI, the personal representative of the deceased Developer shall have a reasonable time, but no more than eighteen (18) months after the death of the Developer, to dispose of the deceased's interest in this Agreement and the business conducted pursuant hereto, which disposition shall be subject to all the terms and conditions for assignments and transfers contained in this Agreement. If the interest is not disposed of within twelve (12) or eighteen (18) months, whichever is applicable, Franchisor may terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 5.03. hereof. 6.06. Right of First Refusal. Any party holding any interest in this ---------------------- Agreement or in Developer, and who desires to accept any bona fide offer from a ---- ---- third party to purchase such interest, shall notify Franchisor in writing of such offer within ten (10) days of receipt of such offer, and shall provide such information and documentation relating to the offer as Franchisor may require. Franchisor shall have the right and option, exercisable within thirty (30) days after receipt of such written notification, to send written notice to the seller that Franchisor intends to purchase the seller's interest on the same terms and conditions offered by the third party. In the event that Franchisor elects to purchase the seller's interest, closing on such purchase must occur within sixty (60) days from the date of notice to the seller of the election to purchase by Franchisor. Any material change in the terms of any offer prior to closing shall constitute a new offer subject to the same rights of first refusal by Franchisor as in the case of an initial offer. Failure of Franchisor to exercise the option afforded by this Section 6.06. shall not constitute a waiver of any other provisions of this Agreement, including all of the requirements of this Section VI, with respect to a proposed transfer. In the event the consideration, terms, and/or conditions offered by a third party are such that Franchisor may not reasonably be required to furnish the same consideration, terms, and/or conditions, then Franchisor may purchase the interest in this Agreement, Developer, or Developer's business proposed to be sold for the reasonable equivalent in cash. If the parties cannot agree within a reasonable time as to the reasonable equivalent in cash of the consideration, terms, and/or conditions offered by the third party, an independent appraiser shall be designated by Franchisor, and his determination shall be binding upon the parties. 6.07. Offerings by Developer. Securities or partnership interests in ---------------------- Developer may be offered to the public, by private offering or otherwise, only with the prior written consent of Franchisor, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. All materials required for such offering by federal or state law shall be submitted to Franchisor for review prior to their being filed 15 <PAGE> with any governmental agency; and any materials to be used in any exempt offering shall be submitted to Franchisor for review prior to their use. No offering of such securities shall imply (by use of the Proprietary Marks or otherwise) that Franchisor is participating in the underwriting, issuance, or offering of securities by Developer or Franchisor; and Franchisor's review of any offering shall be limited solely to the subject of the relationship between Developer and Franchisor. Developer and the other participants in the offering must fully indemnify Franchisor in connection with the offering. For each proposed offering, Developer shall pay to Franchisor a non-refundable fee of Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000), or such greater amount as is necessary to reimburse Franchisor for its reasonable costs and expenses associated with reviewing the proposed offering, including, without limitation, legal and accounting fees. Developer shall give Franchisor written notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of commencement any offering or other transaction covered by this Section 6.07. VII. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION 7.01. Developer shall not, during the term of this Agreement or thereafter, communicate, divulge, or use for the benefit of any other person, persons, partnership, association, or corporation, any confidential information, knowledge, or know-how concerning the construction and methods of operation of any Franchised Unit which may be communicated to Developer, or of which Developer may be apprised, by virtue of Developer's operation under the terms of this Agreement. Developer shall divulge such confidential information only to such employees of Developer as must have access to it in order to exercise the development rights granted hereunder and to establish and operate the Franchised Units pursuant to the Franchise Agreement and as Developer may be required by law, provided, Developer shall give Franchisor prior written notice of any such required disclosure immediately upon receipt of notice by Developer in order for Franchisor to have the opportunity to seek a protective order or take such other actions as it deems appropriate under the circumstances. 7.02. Any and all information, knowledge, and know-how, including, without limitation, drawings, materials, equipment, recipes, prepared mixtures or blends of spices or other food products, and other data, which Franchisor designates as confidential, and any information, knowledge, or know-how which may be derived by analysis thereof, shall be deemed confidential for purposes of this Development Agreement, except information which Developer can demonstrate came to Developer's attention prior to disclosure thereof by Franchisor or which, at the time of disclosure thereof by Franchisor to Developer, had become a part of the public domain, through publication or communication by others or which, after disclosure to Developer by Franchisor, becomes a part of the public domain, through publication or communication by others. 7.03. Developer shall require all of Developer's employees, as a condition of their employment, to execute an employment agreement, as provided in writing by Franchisor, prohibiting them during the term of their employment, or thereafter, from communicating, divulging, or using for the benefit of any person, persons, partnership, association, or corporation any confidential information, knowledge, or know-how concerning the methods of operation of the franchised business which may be acquired during the term of their employment with Developer. A duplicate original of each such agreement shall be provided to Franchisor upon execution. 16 <PAGE> VIII. COVENANTS 8.01. Developer specifically acknowledges that, pursuant to this Agreement, Developer will receive valuable specialized training and confidential information, including, without limitation, information regarding the operational, sales, promotional, and marketing methods and techniques of Franchisor and the System. Developer covenants that, during the term of this Agreement, except as otherwise approved in writing by Franchisor, Developer (who, unless otherwise specified, shall include for purposes of this Section VIII, collectively and individually, all officers, directors and holders of a beneficial interest of five percent (5%) or more of the securities with voting rights of Developer, and of any corporation directly or indirectly controlling Developer, if Developer is a corporation, and the general partners and any limited partners, including any corporation and the officers, directors and holders of beneficial interests of five percent (5%) or more of the securities with voting rights, of a corporation which controls, directly or indirectly, any general or limited partner, if Developer is a partnership) shall not, either directly or indirectly, for Developer or through or on behalf of, or in conjunction with, any person, persons, partnership, or corporation: A. Divert or attempt to divert any business or customer of the Franchised Units to be developed hereunder to any competitor by direct or indirect inducements or otherwise, or to do or perform, directly or indirectly, any other act injurious or prejudicial to the goodwill associated with Franchisor's Proprietary Marks and the System; B. Employ or seek to employ any person who is at the time employed by Franchisor or by any other CINNABON franchisees or otherwise, or directly or indirectly induce such person to leave his or her employment; or C. Own, maintain, operate, engage in, or have any interest in any fast food (either takeout, on premises consumption, or a combination thereof) restaurant that specializes in the preparation and/or sale of cinnamon rolls, bakery products, specialty coffee and coffee products, and other food products substantially similar to those sold within the CINNABON System (a "Bakery"); provided, however, that the term "Bakery" shall not apply to any business operated by Franchisee under a franchise agreement with Franchisor or an affiliate of Franchisor. During the term of this Agreement, there is no geographical limitation on this restriction. 8.02. Developer covenants that, except as otherwise approved in writing by the Franchisor, Developer shall not, either directly or indirectly, for itself or through or on behalf of, or in conjunction with, any person, persons, partnership or corporation, during the term hereof or for two (2) years following expiration or termination of this Agreement, regardless of the cause for termination, own, maintain, engage in, or have an interest in any Bakery which is located within a radius of ten (10) miles of the location of any other CINNABON Bakery under the System, whether owned by Franchisor or any other CINNABON franchisee, which is in existence as of the date of expiration or termination of this Agreement. 17 <PAGE> 8.03. At Franchisor's request, Developer shall require and obtain execution of covenants similar to those set forth in this Section VIII (including covenants applicable upon the termination of a person's relationship with Developer) from all officers, directors, and holders of a direct or indirect beneficial ownership interest of five percent (5%) or more in Developer. Every covenant required by this Section 8.03. shall be in a form satisfactory to Franchisor, including, without limitation, specific identification of Franchisor as a third party beneficiary of such covenants with the independent right to enforce them. Failure by Developer to obtain execution of a covenant required by this Section 8.03. shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement. IX. NOTICES Any and all notices required or permitted under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered by any means which will provide evidence of the date received to the respective parties at the following addresses unless and until a different address has been designated by written notice to the other party: Notices to Franchisor: CINNABON, INC. Atlanta, Georgia 30328-5352 cc: Legal Department Notices to Developer: _______________________ Attention:_____________ All written notices and reports permitted or required to be delivered by the provisions of this Agreement shall be addressed to the party to be notified at its most current principal business address of which the notifying party has been notified and shall be deemed so delivered (i) at the time delivered by hand; (ii) one (1) business day after sending by telegraph, facsimile or comparable electronic system; or (iii) if sent by registered or certified mail or by other means which affords the sender evidence of delivery, on the date and time of receipt or attempted delivery if delivery has been refused or rendered impossible by the party being notified. 18 <PAGE> X. NON-WAIVER No failure of Franchisor to exercise any power reserved to it in this Agreement, or to insist upon compliance by Developer with any obligation or condition in this Agreement, and no custom or practice of the parties at variance with the terms hereof, shall constitute a waiver of Franchisor's right to demand exact compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Waiver by Franchisor of any particular default shall not affect or impair Franchisor's right with respect to any subsequent default of the same or of a different nature, nor shall any delay, forbearance, or omission of Franchisor to exercise any power or rights arising out of any breach or default by Developer of any of the terms, provisions, or covenants of this Agreement, affect or impair Franchisor's rights, nor shall such constitute a waiver by Franchisor of any rights hereunder or right to declare any subsequent breach or default. Subsequent acceptance by Franchisor of any payments due to it shall not be deemed to be a waiver by Franchisor of any preceding breach by Developer of any terms, covenants, or conditions of this Agreement. XI. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR AND INDEMNIFICATION 11.01. It is understood and agreed by the parties hereto that this Agreement does not create a fiduciary relationship between them, that Developer is an independent contractor, and that nothing in this Agreement is intended to constitute either party an agent, legal representative, subsidiary, joint venturer, partner, employee, or servant of the other for any purpose whatsoever. 11.02. Developer shall hold itself out to the public to be an independent contractor operating pursuant to this Agreement. Developer agrees to take such actions as shall be necessary to that end. 11.03. Developer understands and agrees that nothing in this Agreement authorizes the Developer to make any contract, agreement, warranty, or representation on Franchisor's behalf, or to incur any debt or any other obligation in Franchisor's name, and that Franchisor shall in no event assume liability for, or be deemed liable hereunder as a result of, any such action or by reason of any act or omission of Developer, or any claim or judgement arising therefrom. Developer shall indemnify and hold Franchisor and Franchisor's officers, directors, shareholders, and employees, harmless against any and all such claims arising directly or indirectly from, as a result of, or in connection with Developer's activities, as well as the cost, including attorney's fees, of defending against such claims. 11.04. Developer shall indemnify and hold Franchisor harmless for all costs, expenses, or losses incurred by Franchisor in enforcing the provisions hereof or in upholding the propriety of any action or determination by Franchisor pursuant to this Agreement, or arising in any manner from Developer's breach of or failure to perform any covenant or obligation hereunder, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees incurred by Franchisor in connection with any litigation relating to any aspect of this Agreement, unless Developer shall be found, after due legal proceedings, to have complied with all of the terms, provisions, conditions and covenants hereof. XII. APPROVALS 19 <PAGE> 12.01. Whenever this Agreement requires the prior approval of Franchisor, Developer shall make a timely written request to Franchisor therefor, and, except as may otherwise be expressly provided herein, any approval or consent granted shall be in writing. 12.02. Franchisor makes no warranties or guaranties upon which Developer may rely, and assumes no liability or obligation to Developer or any third party to which Franchisor would not otherwise be subject, by providing any waiver, approval, advice, consent, or services to Developer in connection with this Agreement, or by reason of any neglect, delay, or denial of any request therefor. XIII. ACKNOWLEDGMENT 13.01. Developer acknowledges that the success of the business venture contemplated by this Agreement involves substantial business risks and will be largely dependent upon the ability of Developer as an independent businessman. Franchisor expressly disclaims the making of, and Developer acknowledges not having received, any warranty or guaranty, expressed or implied, as to the potential volume, profits, or success of the business venture contemplated by this Agreement. 13.02. Developer acknowledges that Developer has received, read, and understands this Agreement, the exhibits hereto, and agreements relating hereto, if any; and the Franchisor has accorded Developer ample time and opportunity to consult with advisors of Developer's own choosing about the potential benefits and risks of entering into this Agreement. 13.03.

XIV. SEVERABILITY AND CONSTRUCTION 14.01. Except as expressly provided to the contrary herein, each portion, section, part, term, and/or provision of this Agreement shall be considered severable; and if, for any reason, any section, part, term, and/or provision herein is determined to be invalid and contrary to, or in conflict with, any existing or future law or regulation by a court or agency having valid jurisdiction, such shall not impair the operation, or have any other effect upon, such other portions, sections, parts, terms, and/or provisions of this Agreement as may remain otherwise intelligible, and the latter shall continue to be given full force and effect to bind the parties; and said invalid portions, sections, parts, terms, and/or provisions shall be deemed not to be part of this Agreement. 14.02. Except as has been expressly provided to the contrary herein, nothing in this Agreement is intended, nor shall be deemed, to confer upon any person or legal entity other than 20 <PAGE> Developer, Franchisor, Franchisor's officers, directors, and employees, and Developer's and Franchisor's respective successors and assigns as may be contemplated (and, as to Developer, permitted) by Section VI hereof, any rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement. 14.03. Developer expressly agrees to be bound by any covenant or promise imposing the maximum duty permitted by law which is subsumed within the terms of any provision hereof, as though it were separately articulated in and made a part of this Agreement, that may result from striking from any of the provisions hereof any portion or portions which a court will hold to be unreasonable and unenforceable in a final decision to which Franchisor is a party, or from reducing the scope of any promise or covenant to the extent required to comply with such court order. 14.04. All captions in this Agreement are intended solely for the convenience of the parties, and none shall be deemed to affect the meaning or construction of the provisions hereof. 14.05. All provisions of this Agreement which, by their terms or intent, are designed to survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement, shall so survive the expiration and/or termination of this Agreement. 14.06. This Agreement may be executed in multiple originals and each copy so executed deemed an original. XV. ENTIRE AGREEMENT AND APPLICABLE LAW 15.01. This Agreement, the documents referred to herein, and the exhibits hereto, constitute the entire, full, and complete agreement between Franchisor and Developer concerning the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all prior agreements. Except for those permitted to be made unilaterally by Franchisor hereunder, no amendment, change, or variance from this Agreement shall be binding on either party unless mutually agreed to by the parties and executed by their authorized officers or agents in writing. 15.02. Applicable Law. This Agreement takes effect upon its acceptance -------------- and execution by Franchisor and shall be interpreted and construed under the laws of the State of Georgia which laws shall prevail in the event of any conflict of law (without regard to, and without giving effect to, the application of Georgia choice of law or conflict of law rules); provided, however, that if the covenants in Article VIII of this Agreement would not be enforceable under the laws of Georgia, then such covenants shall be interpreted and construed under the laws of the State in which the Developer operates the Franchised Units developed hereunder, or in the State where Developer is domiciled if Developer, at such time, is not operating any Franchised Units. Nothing in this Section XV is intended by the parties to subject this Agreement to any franchise or similar law, rule, or regulation of the State of Georgia to which this Agreement would not otherwise be subject. 15.03. The parties agree that any action brought by Developer against Franchisor in any court, whether federal or state, shall be brought within such state and in the judicial district in which Franchisor has its principal place of business. Any action brought by Franchisor against Developer in any court, whether federal or state, may be brought within the state and in the judicial district in 21 <PAGE> which Franchisor has its principal place of business. Developer hereby waives all questions of personal jurisdiction or venue for the purpose of carrying out this provision. 15.04. No right or remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to Franchisor is exclusive of any other right or remedy herein, or by law or equity provided or permitted; but each shall be cumulative of any other right or remedy provided in this Agreement. 15.05. Nothing herein contained shall bar Franchisor's right to obtain injunctive relief against threatened conduct that will cause it loss or damages, under the usual equity rules, including the applicable rules for obtaining restraining orders and preliminary injunctions. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound hereby, have duly executed, sealed, and delivered this Agreement in multiple originals as of the day and year first above-written.
