    TSX-V Trading Symbol: FSN

    CALGARY, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - Franchise Services of North America Inc. ("FSNA"
or the "Company") announced today its third quarter results for the period
ending June 30, 2007. Revenue for the nine months ending June 30, 2007 was USD
$9.8 Million and net income was USD $307,821, after consideration of
approximately USD $200,000 of one-time expenses related to the acquisition and
development of revenue from the newly acquired insurance agency. Both were in
line with management's expectations, and compare to revenue of CDN $473,029
and a net loss of CDN ($90,717) for the comparable period in the prior year.
    These numbers include only seven months of U-Save's results due to the
November 2006 Reverse Take-Over (RTO) between U-Save Auto Rental of America,
Inc. and the predecessor company, Rent-A-Wreck Capital Inc. Reference is
hereby made to the company's filings on Sedar, at www.sedar.com, for a
detailed description of the RTO and the related financial information. The
Company also announced that unique visitors to the company's website
(www.usave.com) continued to experience exponential growth in the quarter,
resulting in triple-digit booking growth.
    "The newly acquired insurance agency, and the insurance platform in
general, incurred a non-recurring investment of approximately USD $200,000 to
build the infrastructure for its anticipated MGA designation and the expansion
of its menu of insurance products. The insurance division currently represents
a significant percentage of the companies' revenue, and with this investment
we anticipate realization of the revenue stream to begin its increase in the
fourth quarter and into the 2008 fiscal year. The addition of this revenue
stream will enable us to continue our efforts to expand our franchise network
in North America for the U-Save brand and in Canada for the Rent-A-Wreck
brand. In addition, we continue to identify strong interest in new franchises
and currently have several quality candidates under consideration," said
Robert M. Barton, Chief Operating Officer of the Company.
