Meritage Hospitality Group, Inc., a Michigan corporation (“Issuer”), has filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder, to withdraw its Common Stock, $.01 par value (“Security”), from listing and registration on the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. (“CHX” or “Exchange”).
The Issuer states in its application that it has met the requirements of the CHX Article XXVIII, Rule 4, by complying with Exchange's rules governing an issuer's voluntary withdrawal of a security from listing and registration.

The Company also states that based on its most recent Form 10-Q filing, the total number of outstanding shares of its Security is 5,328,385.
The Issuer's application relates solely to the withdrawal of the Security from listing and registration on the CHX and shall have no affect upon the Security's continued listing and registration on the Amex under section 12(b) of the Act.
