Distribution. We operate a distribution center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina which supplies key supplies, including doughnut mixes, icings and fillings, other food ingredients, coffee, juices, uniforms and various other items to domestic stores in the Eastern United States and to certain international franchise stores. In May 2008, we subcontracted with an independent distributor to supply the domestic stores not supplied from Winston-Salem, which generally consist of stores west of the Mississippi River. These stores previously were supplied from a distribution center in Southern California, which we closed in August 2008.
 
We provide many of the beverages offered in our stores, substantially all of which are purchased from third parties. Our beverage program includes drip coffees, both coffee-based and noncoffee-based frozen drinks, packaged and fountain beverages and, in many of our shops, a complete line of espresso-based coffees including flavors. See “— Products — Beverages.”
 
Most of our domestic franchisees have agreed contractually through our Supply Chain Alliance Program to purchase all of their requirements for the critical areas of their business from KK Supply Chain. We believe that our ability to distribute supplies to our operators produces several advantages, including:
