Monthly Charge that Includes Royalty
and Marketing Fees


PARSIPPANY, N.J. (June 23, 2004) – Knights Franchise Systems today introduced an incentive program to encourage development by first-time franchisees and current Knights Inn owners.

The program offers a $20.80 per room, fixed, flat monthly charge that includes royalty and marketing fees.  The agreement, offered to first-time franchisees and current Knights Inn owners who sign a franchise agreement for another Knights Inn property features a three-year renewable term for up to four renewal terms.  The contract sets a fixed $1 fee for each voice booking made through the Cendant central reservations system.
