Rising stars lead the way
Illegal Burger is a quick casual restaurant chain owned and operated by West Coast Ventures Group Corp (OTCMKTS:WCVC). The Illegal Burger chain is based in the Denver area and is in early growth mode with plans for national expansion. Illegal Burger has already established an approach that attracts customers focused on mindful sourcing as well as those simply looking for a fun night out.
The core of Illegal Burger's approach is to offer burgers made with fresh, all-natural beef that is never frozen. In addition, the beef is sourced from suppliers who use no antibiotics or growth hormones. Each burger is prepared to order and the menu includes such healthy options as chicken dishes and salads. Those seeking plant-based options are also well-served given that Illegal Burger's Vegan Burger won a Denver Top Ten Vegan Burger award.
Theoretically, any Bloomin' Brands operation could achieve similar goals, but Illegal Burger is now taking things to the next level with the addition of cannabidiol (CBD)-infused menu items. CBD is widely recognized for its healing and soothing properties and many consumers prefer it in edible form. Having introduced its first CBD menu item, the Illegal CBD Infused Burger Bowl, for the recent 420 celebrations, Illegal Burger has much more in store as it seeks to meet its customers' desires for healthy eating.

Market Comparisons indicate WCVC is highly undervalued
Sales and share price of 7 fast food companies were analyzed and compared to West Coast Ventures Group. Results indicate that West Coast Ventures Group should be trading at over $.20 rather than the current $.04. The reason for the undervaluation is clearly a problem of lack of investor awareness. Once investors become more familiar with WCVC, the price and trading volume are subject to rapid valuation increases that are more in line with current market valuations.
It should also be noted that the indicated $.20 market comp price, could be revalued substantially higher than conventional restaurant comps because WCVC growth from CBD edibles has the potential to be several orders of magnitude higher than simply being a fast food enterprise. West Coast Ventures Group owns the fast-growing “Illegal Burger” franchise chain and the Mexican Restaurant chain, “El Senor Sol” that are pioneers in the cannabis edibles industry and is positioned to garner a substantial market share in a booming industry. WCVC is also planning on offering popular Illegal Pizza franchises.
Comparable Market Cap to Sales Ratios
Shake Shack (SHAK) $492,000,000 $2,370,000,000
FAT Brands (FAT) $19,000,000 $48,000,000
Jack in the Box (JACK) $872,000,000 $2,230,000,000
Wendy’s (WEN) $1,300,000,000 $4,600,000,000
Rave Restaurant Group $12,000,000 $44,000,000
Dunkin’Brands (DNKN) $1,340,000,000 $6,500,000,000
Chipotle (CMG) $5,000,000,000 $19,600,000,000
TOTAL $9,035,000,000 $35,392,000,000
The average share price ratio to sales for this group is 3.91 to 1.
WCVC reported 2018 sales of $3,054,623. The current ratio of 3.91 times $3,054,623 equals a fair market comp price for WCVC of slightly over $.20 and does not give any weight to the fact that they are a new venture with an unsaturated high-growth market. We will save forecasting price projections for those better suited to the task, but for now it is clear that WCVC shares are an exceptional bargain at anything under $.20 with a strong potential to see prices approaching $.50 in 12 months as franchise sales are expected to be reported. Q1 2019 reported sales increased over 21% from Q1 2018 from $690,759 to $839,615. Potentially explosive franchise sales could ignite shares to record highs.
