Could you give us a little more color on the impact on the changes you made to the bonus system? Did it have the impact you were hoping for on the employee retention and satisfaction and customer impact? And was the cost about what you expected as well?
Well, we just started the program in January, Paul so its really early too early to tell from a retention standpoint and results standpoint. But essentially, we just did a small modification in the way some of our restaurants are charged their occupancy costs and sort of leveled the playing field with other restaurants in our system, and so that results in guys potentially earnings more money, depending upon if they continue to be as profitable as they were in the prior year, it would cost us about $1.5 million. But again, its only been out for really one complete reporting period.
