The company's name will now be Sobik's International Franchising Inc.

"The company believes that by giving Sobik's the flexibility to aggressively grow on its own while continuing to have the access of Ultimate Franchise Systems Inc.'s purchasing power and infrastructure of management, [it] will strengthen both Ultimate Franchise Systems Inc. and Sobik's International Franchising Inc.," said Christopher M.
