EXPANSION IN 1964
Capable management, financial
strength, and sound diversification
provide the foundation for the coming year.
Two units, a public cafeteria in
the Newmarket Shopping Center,
Newport News, Virginia, and a
drive-in service restaurant in Salt
Lake City, Utah, are already open
in fiscal 1964. Others are under lease
in Cleveland, Ohio; Dallas, Texas;
Haverford, Pennsylvania; Mt. Lebanon, Pennsylvania; Moorestown,
New Jersey; Washington, D. C.;
Delaware Turnpike; and 4 new units
on an extension of the Sunshine
Parkway in Florida.
Site work has begun on our 500-
room Atlanta, Georgia, Marriott
Motor Hotel which will be located
on a superb 5-acre tract two blocks
east of Peaehtree Street. This magnificent motor hotel will feature
free parking for 500 cars, complete
banquet and convention facilities,
three beautiful restaurants, and an
exclusive Windjammer Club.
The Philadelphia Marriott Motor
Hotel currently is being expanded
with 150 additional rooms and convention facilities.
New flight kitchens are being constructed in Newark and at Chicago's
O'Hare Field to replace presently
inadequate facilities, and a 36-acre
tract near Washington, D. C, has
been acquired for the construction
of a new multi-million dollar food
processing and manufacturing facility. This new commissary will
serve all units in the Washington,
Philadelphia, and Richmond areas.
Efficient, attractive, prototype
designs are available for all units
contemplated in each division, which
will contribute much to the effective
realization of our expansion plans.
Several new institutional feeding
contracts have been signed, and operations have already begun for
General Electric in Johnson City,
New York, and Holton Arms School,
Washington, D. C.
Early in September, 1963 we undertook an extensive advertising
campaign promoting our new Pappy Parker Smoky Mountain Fried
Chicken. Early indications are most
encouraging, and we believe that
this and other intensified merchandising and sales efforts in all divisions will contribute significantly
to 1964 earnings.
We regret the recent passing of
Mr. Eric Johnston, President of the
Motion Picture Association of America, and a Director of Hot Shoppes,
Inc. for the past 9 years. Mr. Johnston's wisdom and judgment contributed much to our Company during this period.
We have been fortunate to fill Mr.
Johnston's vacancy on our Board
with Mr. Don G. Mitchell, an outstanding authority on professional
management and a successful businessman. Mr. Mitchell is presently
Chairman of the Board of Directors
of the American Management Association and a director of many
Our past achievements and future success rest on the support
and loyalty of our customers, our
stockholders, and our 9,100 employees. We very much appreciate the
gratifying response we have received from each group during the
Our annual stockholders' meeting
will take place at 10:00 A.M. Tuesday, November 12,1963, in the Chesapeake Room of the Twin Bridges
Marriott Motor Hotel, Arlington,
Virginia (U. S. 1). I hope that you
will be able to join us on this significant occasion.
