For the period the company reported revenues of $5.7 million, and net income, before an extraordinary item of $603,000, or $.04 per share. This compares to 2000 revenues of $5.5 million, and net income before an extraordinary item of $696,000, or $.06 per share.

The company cited the events of Sept. 11 as negatively impacting sales in its non-traditional hotel sites.
Since 1999, Noble Roman's has focused on franchising non-traditional and co-brand locations, many of which are in c-stores. In the same year the company franchised all remaining full-service restaurants.
As of December 31, 2001, the company had awarded more than 950 franchises in non-traditional and co-brand locations in 43 states, plus Puerto Rico, Guam, Italy and Canada.
