SIZZLER ANNOUNCES REOPENING OF NORTHGATE RESTAURANT

 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Sizzler International, Inc. (NYSE: SZ) President Richard Bermingham announced today that the Northgate Sizzler restaurant at 550 Northgate Way in Seattle will reopen today.
 An inspection was completed this morning by the Seattle-King County Department of Health. The Sizzler restaurant was approved to reopen.
 In conjunction with the reopening, Mr. Bermingham released the following statement:
 When we closed this restaurant, we committed all of our resources to complete cooperation with local, state and federal health authorities. In addition, we announced that we would be doing our own, independent investigation of this incident.
 The decision to reopen the restaurant was made only after a complete inspection by and approval of our investigation team.
 Beyond this, our team has carefully studied every element of the restaurant's operation. Our own team, as well as local, state and federal authorities, have determined that this was an isolated incident and that the standards and procedures in place at the time of the incident were and continue to correct and appropriate.
 Still, we are continuing our investigation. Our investigation team is comprised of outside, independent experts in microbiology, food handling, preparation and sanitation procedures and public health. This team has an ongoing charge to review every element of our operations (food sourcing, distribution, preparation, handling, etc.), ensuring that every aspect of the Sizzler system has received intense scrutiny from experts at the top of their respective fields.
 The health and safety of our customers is our number one concern. There is nothing more important to us than to make sure that our guests enjoy a healthy, wholesome experience at Sizzler.
 We are thankful that everyone who was ill is recovering well. And, we appreciate the support of our many suppliers, franchisees, restaurant operators and, most of all, our guests.
