Why so much all at once?

I do remember the four.

It is global doughnut day.

I must say, we have a great brand.

We're expanding around the world.

We're going to california.

We are moving california up.

That is exciting heard -- that is exciting.

Texas, germany.

We broke our own world record.

The thing is, you are expanding in a lot of places.

I know you are making a lot of money, you have been growing scales -- sales up to 20%. is there a point when you grow too fast?

A lot of investors do not think we are growing fast enough.

It is interesting to hear the other perspective.
