Fair enough. Also booked my (multiple speakers).

And I guess the whole weather factor of Q4 is always one of those things that we are worried a little bit about. If weather hit at the bad time we're expecting to be a great week, we're just more subject to weather impact in Q4 than most of the time.

Analyst
Sharon Zackfia

Okay. And then maybe this ties back to the revenue question for next year. Do you have any color on the cadence of new unit openings? I know you were front-end weighted this year, just kind of unusual. And then any update on international? I thought international was supposed to open this year. Maybe that was pushed to 2019 just anything there?

Executive
Brian Jenkins

Yeah, we'll try to give some cadence guidance. We have quite a few of the stores that are under construction right now. I would think about it even right now, but we can try to give you a little more cadence on the Q4 -- on our Q4 call in April. We've got quite a few under construction right now. So we feel very confident in the guide overall for the year and think we have a good pipeline for 2019 and actually well into the 2020 actually as well. International, that's an excellent question. We still believe international is a good long-term opportunity for the brand. Candidly, heavily focused here on igniting the core business as a top priority, that's getting a lot of attention as it should as a team here. But we do believe international represents an opportunity and we are still progressing on our first Middle East store, although much slower than we had hoped, but we have a lot of sites to be liked and we -- that have targeted and we hope to have more that we could talk to you about on our fiscal year-end call.
