    If the subject  report  could not be filed  without  unreasonable  effort or
expense  and  the  registrant  seeks  relief  pursuant  to Rule  12b-25(b),  the
following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)

    (a)  The reasons  described  in  reasonable  detail in Part III of this form
         could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

[X] (b)  The subject annual report, semi-annual report, or transition report
         or portion  thereof will be filed on or before the  fifteenth  calendar
         day following the prescribed due date; or the subject  quarterly report

Part III - Narrative
- ------------------------------------

    State below in reasonable  detail the reasons why the Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K,
10-Q, or N-SAR,  or the transition  report or portion thereof could not be filed
within the prescribed time period.

    Effective  August  31,  1999 the  Company  acquired  all of the  issued  and
outstanding shares of East Coast Beverage Corp. ("ECBC"), a Florida Corporation,
in exchange for shares of the Company's common stock. Following this transaction
the  management  of the Company  resigned and was replaced by the  management of
ECBC.  Since  August 31, 1999 the  business of the Company is that  conducted by
ECBC,  which is the  development,  production and  distribution  of Coffee House
USA(TM),  a  proprietary  line of all  natural,  ready to drink  bottled  coffee
drinks.  Since this is the first annual  report which will reflect the Company's
new business, additional time is needed to complete the report.

         (or for such shorter period that
         the registrant was required to file
         such reports) been filed?  If answer
         is no, identify report(s).                       [X] Yes  [  ] No

    (3)  Is it anticipated that any significant
         change in results of operations from
         the  corresponding  period for the last
         fiscal  year  will be reflected by the
         earnings statements to be included in the
         subject report or portion thereof?               [  ] Yes  [X] No
