CHECKERS DRIVE-IN RESTAURANTS REPORTS ON EFFECTS OF TORNADOES

 CHECKERS DRIVE-IN RESTAURANTS REPORTS ON EFFECTS OF TORNADOES
 CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHKR) today announced the tornadoes that devastated parts of Pinellas County on Oct. 3, 1992, did in fact destroy part of the steel overhead canopy roof which covers the Checkers restaurant manufacturing facility. The damages that were incurred are fully covered by insurance. The plant's ability to produce restaurant buildings remains intact and therefore, production and shipping will proceed as scheduled. There were approximately 25 Checkers buildings in various stages of completion. Although some had slight damage, none were seriously damaged. This demonstrates, once again, the Checkers restaurant modular buildings are solidly built and can withstand not only the Category 4 winds of Hurricane Andrew but powerful tornadoes as well. All buildings scheduled for delivery this week and forthcoming weeks will be shipped on schedule. A full assembly crew is working at this time on the Checkers production line.
 None of the operating Checkers restaurants in Pinellas County were damaged by the tornadoes.
