COMPANY HISTORY Desert de Oro Foods, Inc., was formed in March 1982, when the brother/sister team of Mark Peterson and Krystal (Peterson) Burge left college to pursue their entrepreneurial dream of building a chain of quick serve restaurants. With the support of their parents, Dean and Sonja Peterson, the pair purchased and personally operated their first location, Taco Bell #2083 in Kingman, Arizona, for three years before expanding to Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City in 1985. Vista Foods, Inc. was created in 1987 with the purchase of a single unit in Prescott and has since grown to five locations, including a multi-brand KFC/TB. In 1988, Mark and Krystals mother and fellow franchisee, Sonja Zee Peterson, left the family law practice to actively participate in the thriving company. The company continued to expand and another company, DDO-Cal, Inc., was added to include restaurants in Blythe and Needles, California. In 1997, the growing company tripled in size with the addition of 26 restaurants in the Phoenix area under the umbrella of Hot Tacos, Inc. A northern Arizona district was added in 1999 with the acquisition of seven restaurants in the White Mountain area. DDO-Utah, LLC, was created in 2008 with the addition of 14 restaurants. With a cadre of loyal employees in place, continued successful growth and expansion is the company goal. Another growth spurt in 2009added five additional restaurants to our southern border regions, stretching from El Centro and Calexico to Yuma under the umbrella of Zee Tacos, LLC. In October 2010, Hot Pizzas, LLC, was formed and the company added 40 Pizza Hut restaurants in the Phoenix metro area. This addition created a new partnership with Pizza Hut Inc and followed true to the companys successful goal of expansion and growth. Both brother and sister hold fast to the belief that business has an obligation to provide a return to the community, thus all locations are encouraged to be active members of the local chamber of commerce. The pair also takes an active role in the community within the Taco Bell Franchise Owners Association. The company is actively involved in supporting the Boys & Girls Club of America, as well as local B&G clubs and numerous other youth and civic activities. Continued growth is the companys ambition, but one thing that remains constant is the franchisees focus on the customer and their belief in the How We Work Together principles, and in putting people first. Today Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, along with Kentucky Fried Chicken and Long John Silvers, are owned and operated by YUM! Brands, Inc. We know you share in that same sense of pride as an employee of the Company.

THE SECRET TO OUR SUCCESS: C.H.A.M.P.S. At each of our restaurants, you will hear six letters repeated over and over again: C.H.A.M.P.S. (Cleanliness, Hospitality, Accuracy, Maintenance, Product Quality, and Speed of Service). These are the principles Pizza Hut was built on, and these are the standards for our daily operation. When we provide our guests with 100% C.H.A.M.P.S. with a YES! attitude, we can keep their loyalty and they will come back. We want to provide our guests with an atmosphere that is fun, casual and comfortable. Each of our restaurants has been designed with the guest in mind; for efficient service and pleasant surroundings, but it takes our Team Members to make our guests stay a truly enjoyable one. C.H.A.M.P.S. begins and ends with you! Cleanliness: Guests like to eat in clean, comfortable surroundings. Examples of cleanliness standards include: un-bussed tables are cleaned within 3 minutes, there is no trash or food on the counter, and there is no debris on the floor or windowsills. Restrooms are clean and fully stocked, trashcans are no more than 2/3 full and the parking lot is free of litter. We really never have spare time at our restaurants because whenever business slows down, we are cleaning. We constantly clean and maintain the entire restaurant, including-the exterior, the dining area, the counter area, the restrooms and the kitchen. Hospitality: At Pizza Hut we treat our guests as if they were guests in our own home. We go that extra step to make guests feel welcome. Guests are our first priority. We strive to provide hospitality because it makes our job more pleasant and also drives our business. The attentiveness, courtesy and friendliness you display toward your guests is our most important form of marketing. Accuracy: Our guests want to receive exactly what they ordered, and they want it prepared and packaged correctly. Pizza Hut s accuracy standards are: correctly enter the guests order into the register, use the right ingredients and portion them accurately, use the correct packaging for each item and complete all orders with all items. Maintenance: Guests expect a safe and well-maintained environment. Product Quality: Guests want hot food served hot, cold food served cold, and all food portioned correctly and presented neatly. Our menu items are the product of a great deal of research and development, but we rely on you to make sure that every one of our guests enjoys a hot, tasty and perfectly prepared meal every time they visit one of our restaurants. We are famous for the quality of our food, so we insist that you follow specific food preparation procedures that are both efficient and sanitary. Speed with Service: Guests expect to receive their food quickly, whether they dine in, carry out, visit the drive-thru or order for delivery. Fast service means meeting or exceeding our Speed with Service goals. Serving each guest quickly is our first priority. We expect you to be efficient, attentive, courteous and respectful at all times.

CUSTOMER MANIA Guests are among our company's most valuable assets. Every employee represents Pizza Hut to our guests. The way we do our jobs presents an image of our entire company. Guests judge all of us by how they are treated with each employee contact. Therefore, one of our first business priorities is to assist any guest or potential guest. Nothing is more important than being courteous, friendly, helpful, and prompt in the attention you give to guests. Our personal contact with the public, our manners on the telephone, and the communications we send to guests are a reflection not only of ourselves, but also of the professionalism of our company. Positive guest relations not only enhance the public's perception or image of our Company, but also pay off in greater guest loyalty and increased sales.

Payment of Travel Certain prepaid expenses such as transportation tickets and conference fees may be billed directly to the Company. Travelers are required to submit requests for travel to their supervisor for pre-approved travel expenses. The approved request for travel will be submitted to the RSC for registration, scheduling and processing.

Transportation tickets should be procured in advance in order to obtain any discounts offered by the carrier or negotiated by the Company.

Air Travel Coach class or any discounted class airfare shall be used in the interest of economy. It is the travelers responsibility to submit airline flight requests to the designated RSC personnel at the Restaurant Support Center (RSC) for booking.

Effective: October 1, 2011

Surface Transportation Used in Lieu of Air Travel If advance approval has been obtained by DO and/or HR, a traveler may use surface transportation for personal reasons even though air travel may be the most cost effective mode of transportation. The cost of meals and lodging, parking, fuel, and taxis incurred while in transit by surface transportation may be reimbursed. Such costs shall not exceed the cost of airfare, based on the lower of the regular coach fare available for the location of travel from a standard commercial air carrier plus transportation costs to and from the terminals. The traveler must obtain the cost of the most effective mode of transportation prior to the travel occurring so that the traveler is aware of any cost limitations for reimbursement. Rental Cars A vehicle may be rented when renting would be more advantageous to the Company than other means of commercial transportation, such as using a taxi. Advanced DO and/or HR approval and reservations should be made whenever possible and a compact or economy model requested. The traveler is responsible for obtaining the best available rate commensurate with the requirements of the trip. The discount negotiated with car rental agencies by the Company should be requested when available. The Company will not accept any vehicle rental charges billed directly to the Company.

It is the travelers responsibility to review all hotel policies prior to check-in. In the event that the traveler cannot agree to a hotel policy, (such as no smoking on hotel property), it is the travelers responsibility to locate alternative lodging and make his/her own reservations and later submit the expense for payment. Reimbursement for such lodging will not exceed the direct bill rate negotiated with the hotel by the Company. The Company pays for room and tax only, and the traveler should be prepared to put a personal credit card or cash deposit on file at the hotel to cover any incidental expenses. Any damage to or theft of hotel property by the traveler that is direct-billed to the Company will be charged back to the traveler as an expense and deducted from his/her next pay check. All employees traveling as representatives of the Company are responsible for conducting themselves in a professional manner at all times.

A vacation day does not alter the managers responsibility for the operation of the restaurant. Vacations shall be scheduled so as to provide adequate coverage of jobs and staffing requirements. Your supervisor will make the final determination in this regard. Temporary employees do not earn paid vacation. Employees on unpaid leave do not accrue vacation time. (Note: typically employees on paid or unpaid leave of absence do not accrue vacation time. If a holiday occurs during your vacation period, you will receive an additional vacation day. The goal of this policy is to allow time for employees to rest and recuperate. Any employee who has tendered his/her resignation or has left our employ for any reason forfeits all claims to and eligibility for vacation benefits. In Arizona and Utah, the Company will NOT pay unused accrued vacation time, even upon resignation (with or without notice) or termination of employment. In California, as required by state law, all employees will be paid for any unused accrued vacation time after leaving the Companys employ.

Planned time off includes any situation that you know might prevent attendance at work or needs to be scheduled, i.e., vacation reservations, doctors appointments, moving day, etc. If you are aware of any situation that might prevent your attendance at work, submit an Employee Status Change form to your supervisor who will review your request and give approval if: 1. workload allows 2. another staff member has not put in a previous request for the same time 3. you have not had excessive absences Hourly employees do not accrue vacation time but you will be asked to complete a Status Change Form and request time off without pay.

If this happens, you are to call in as soon as possible, but no later than two hours before being scheduled to work as per the Companys call-in procedures. The Company will attempt to approve all reasonable requests.

Any person who engages in a threat of violent action on Company property may be removed from the premises as quickly as safety permits and may be required, at the Companys discretion, to remain off Company premises at least pending the outcome of an investigation into the incident. Violation of this policy will result in discipline up to and including termination of employment. The Company will make the sole determination of whether, and to what extent, threats or acts of violence will be acted upon by the Company. In making this determination, the Company may undertake a case-by-case analysis in order to ascertain whether there is a reasonable basis to believe that violation of this policy has occurred. No provision of this policy shall alter the atwill nature of employment at the Company.

DRUG TESTING POLICY The Company has a responsibility to all of its employees to provide a safe workplace and a responsibility to the public to ensure that their safety and trust in the Company are protected.

Employees who fail to complete such a rehabilitation program or who test positive for drugs/alcohol a second time will be discharged.

A medical review officer (MRO) will verify the test results and communicate them to the Company. Test results of the designated MRO are considered final. 7. Drug tests may screen for the following substances or their metabolites: alcohol, amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cannabinoids, cocaine, methadone, opiates, propoxyphene, phencyclidine, and methaqualone. Employees tested should notify laboratory personnel of information that could affect test results, including identification of currently or recently used prescription or nonprescription drugs.

Effective: October 1, 2011

Use of Results The Company will take action on a confirmed positive test result only after receiving a report from its designated MRO (medical review officer) or testing laboratory.

Safety Policy- continued The policies cover information on restaurant equipment, knives, electricity, chemical handling and storage, employee health sanitation, building exterior, fires, robbery, vehicles, and driving and employee DUIs (driving under the influence). The safety policy applies to all employees. All employees are required to observe all safety rules and procedures, properly use the safety equipment provided as required, practice safety at all times, not create any safety hazards and report all safety hazards to the supervisor immediately. You are to observe the safety rules contained in the safety program in every phase of your work. You are required to participate in the safety effort of the Company by working safely and attending and participating in safety sessions when offered. Incidents involving personnel are reviewed on a regular basis to identify any possible safety hazards. If you should have an accident or injury, report it to the Manager in Charge immediately no matter how insignificant it may seem. Your particular job requirements may include additional specific safety guidelines that you are required to observe and practice with no exceptions. Employees are encouraged to identify present and potential health and safety problems without fear of retaliation or reprisal. Employees who fail to observe safety rules and practices may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

FOOD SAFETY POLICY Providing safe food to our guests is our first responsibility. Each employee is expected to learn and follow all of the Companys food safety policies and procedures. Each year every restaurant undergoes an extensive Food Quality and Safety Audit, conducted by an independent firm. Every employee is expected to prepare for that audit by continually following food safety procedures. Any willful violation of these policies or procedures could result in civil action against the employee and/or disciplinary action up to and including termination for the first offense.

OUTSIDE EMPLOYMENT Employees may hold outside jobs as long as they meet the performance standards of their job with the Company. All employees will be judged by the same performance standards and will be subject to the Companys scheduling demands, regardless of any outside work requirements. The Company requires that you report any other job you have or may consider taking. We retain the right to determine if this outside job interferes with performance, or is in conflict with your position, scheduling, or ability to give us your best effort. If the Company determines that an employees outside work interferes with performance or the ability to meet the requirements of the Company, the employee may be asked to terminate the outside employment if he/she wishes to remain employed by Pizza Hut. Outside employment that constitutes a conflict of interest is prohibited.

CONFLICT OF INTEREST Employees are required to avoid situations which give rise to actual or potential conflict of interest, or the appearance of a conflict of interest. The following guidelines provide general direction which will allow employees to seek further clarification on issues related to acceptable standards of behavior. An actual or potential conflict of interest may occur when an employee is in a position to influence a decision that may result in a personal gain for that employee or for a relative of that employee as a result of the Companys business dealings. It is also a conflict of interest for an employee or a relative of an employee to accept any kickback, bribe, substantial gift or special consideration as a result of any transaction or business dealings involving the Company. For the purposes of this policy, any person who is related by blood and marriage to an employee, or who lives with the employee, may be considered a relative. An actual or potential conflict of interest may also occur when current employees engage in close personal relationships where one employee is in a position to affect the terms or conditions of employment of the other employee. It is an actual conflict of interest for employees to use Company facilities, equipment, time or funds for personal affairs and such actions are strictly prohibited. When circumstances or conditions exist which may create a potential conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest, the employee must report those circumstances to the Human Resources department so that action may be taken to protect the interests of the Company. Employees who engage in an actual conflict of interest or who fail to report potential conflicts of interest are subject to immediate termination.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO ARIZONA EMPLOYEES All employees are encouraged to communicate to the Company whenever the employee believes working conditions may become intolerable to the employee and may cause the employee to resign. Under 23-1502, Arizona Revised Statutes, an employee may be required to notify an appropriate representative of the employer in writing that a working condition exists that the employee believes is intolerable, that will compel the employee to resign or that constitutes a constructive discharge, if the employee wants to preserve the right to bring a claim against the employer alleging that the working condition forced the employee to resign. Under the law, an employee may be required to wait for fifteen calendar days after providing written notice before the employee may resign if the employee desires to preserve the right to bring a constructive discharge claim against the employer. An employee may be entitled to paid or unpaid leave of absence of up to fifteen calendar days while waiting for the employer to respond to the employees written communication about the employees working condition.
