 "Our Company enters fiscal 1993 in its strongest financial position ever," said Sid Craig, Jenny Craig, Inc. chairman and chief executive officer.

 "In less than a decade, Jenny Craig, Inc. has grown from its first Centre in Australia to approximately 700 Centres in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico," he said. "We believe that these markets have the potential for double that number or 1,400 Jenny Craig Centres. Our plan is to grow to that number as economic and market conditions permit."
 According to Jenny Craig, Inc. president and chief operating officer Ron Gerevas, "the consistently strong performance of this company, I believe, demonstrates the correctness of our reliance on certain fundamental disciplines, such as our commitment to providing the best training possible for all our employees and our uncompromising dedication to quality in every aspect of our business from customer service to the food products we offer.
