TUBBY'S AND SEARS SIGN AGREEMENT FOR SPECIALTY SANDWICH SHOPS

 FRASER, Mich., June 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Tubby's, Inc. (NASDAQ: TUBY) has signed a license agreement to open "Cafe Express" specialty sandwich shops in four Sears stores in Michigan and Ohio, Alex Bardy, Tubby's president and CEO, announced.
 The Cafe Express shops are planned for Sears retail stores in Oakland Mall in Troy, Mich.; Livonia Mall in Livonia, Mich.; Woodland Mall in Grand Rapids, Mich.; and the new BeaverCreek Mall in Dayton, Ohio.
 The four shops will be corporate owned and managed. Openings are slated for August, September and October.
 Menu items will include Tubby's famous fresh-prepared specialty sandwiches, ice cream and other desserts and hot and cold beverages.
 The new shops follow a prototype Cafe Express which Tubby's opened at the upscale Sears store in fashionable Fairlane Town Center in Dearborn, Mich., in February. That shop is performing ahead of expectations and is popular among Sears customers and employees, Bardy said.
 Bardy noted that the round of Sears openings marks the company's entry into new markets in Grand Rapids and Dayton. The company operates a Tubby's SubShop, Stuff Yer Face Restaurant and Angotti's Ice Cream Shoppe on the campus of Ohio State University, Columbus.
 Founded in Michigan, Tubby's, Inc. is the franchisor for Tubby's SubShops and Stuff Yer Face Restaurants with 58 stores in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and New Jersey.
