Published / by thehillsadmin / Leave a Comment

Steve Ritchie is the current CEO of Papa John’s. Lately, he’s been traveling the country meeting with team members and managers to understand what Papa John’s can do to make the company better.

Ritchie visited stores all over the U.S. to speak with individuals who make the business run — the employees. “Without them, there would be no Papa John’s,” said Ritchie.

Ritchie says it was a tremendous opportunity to reach out to teams, whom he considers part of the Papa John’s extended family. “We’ve lost a lot of trust, and some of our workers have paid a hefty price with some pretty testy customer interactions.”

As per CNBC, he says he is very proud of the fact that his managers have supported the community by visiting schools and supporting charities they care about.

Ritchie says that although many of the conversations were difficult, they had to be shared if Papa John’s ever has a prayer of starting over new. “The most important thing is our staff has a full commitment to helping Papa John’s ( move forward.”

Steve Ritchie Papa John’s says he is interested in bringing Papa John’s back to its former glory. Over the past few years, the pizza company has held a pretty sold rating among similar restaurants.

It’s great to get feedback to help us understand where we are. We want to understand what areas we are doing good in and what areas we are lagging.”

Ritchie says the company has to understand that everyone — the managers, pizza makers and drivers are all part of making the company successful. “We just want to be a reflection of the communities we serve.”

Ritchie says as the company continues to move in the right direction, he will continue to reach out and listen to the needs of both the customers and his workers.

The son of a doctor, he was exposed to the industry at an early age and he knew that he wanted to be able to make a difference as an adult.

While Dr. Mark McKenna was interested in the medical field, he didn’t feel secure with just how the industry was structured and knew that he wanted to branch out from the norm. He had always considered himself something of a maverick and spent years trying to figure out how to carve out a place in the industry that would suit his style and skills. Despite his worries, he realized that he was completely wrong and that the medical field was a space that was constantly innovating and changing.

After graduating from Tulane University Medical School, he spent a short time in the medical field before getting into real estate. Dr. Mark McKenna knew that while he had a passion for medicine, he was an entrepreneur at heart.

He knew that he wanted to advocate for patients and help them achieve their goals aesthetically to contribute to their overall wellness. To do this, he decided that it was time to overturn the current aesthetic medicine business model and he proceeded to do just that.

Every Cup of Coffee is Beneficial to Your Health

Published / by thehillsadmin / 1 Comment on Every Cup of Coffee is Beneficial to Your Health

Organo Gold is the newest beverage to take hold of the morning cup of coffee, adding health benefits to every cup. This brand of coffee introduced to the world by Bernardo Chua a few short years ago has added new meaning and flavor to the morning cup of coffee.

Bernardo Chua is revolutionizing the blend of coffee beans by infusing an herb Ganoderma Lucidum with the beans to enhance coffee drinkers health. This King of Herbs, Ganoderma has been used by ancient herbalists since the Ming Dynasty for medicinal purposes. This ancient herb is labeled ‘The King of Herbs.’ Ganoderma Lucidum is a Chinese herb dating back 4200 years. This herb is known to increase oxygen delivery into the system, enhance the immune system, slow weight gain, and provides “good” bacteria into the intestines. This beneficial herb also improves and facilitates detoxification and add other healing elements that can enhance a coffee drinker’s health and well-being.

The herb Ganoderma Lucidum originally grew on living trees, but over the years, the growers have found that this herb also grows on cut logs and stumps of trees providing the same beneficial health ingredients as the crops grown on living trees. The herb Ganoderma grows in the form of an orange-brown mushroom with flared edges. Once it is time to harvest the mushrooms, they are carefully removed from the trees, logs or stumps and dried before ground into a fine powder, then measured to specification, and infused with the roasted beans. It is this combination of herb and coffee bean that creates this “healthy” cup of coffee being served around the world in restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, business offices, and homes.

Organo Gold coffee blends are Café Latte and Black Coffee, along with several beverage products, infused with the “King Of Herbs” are Mocha, Hot Chocolate, Green Tea, Red Tea and Black Tea.

Bernardo Chua had a dream, and that was to infuse the herb Ganoderma Lucidum with coffee beans and other healthy teas and beverages sharing the benefits of this herb with everyone. Bernardo Chua, CEO and a handful of workers opened the first office. With a tremendous amount of work, the business has grown and now has distributors of Organo Gold worldwide.

Organo Gold, distributed in over 40 countries worldwide, has taken people by surprise with its fragrant aromatic flavor-packed taste, enhanced with the Ganoderma Lucidum “The King of Herbs.  Check out Bernardo Chua’s Facebook where there’s more information.

Give The Man an Award

Published / by thehillsadmin / 1 Comment on Give The Man an Award

I use Talk Fusion for my children and I to communicate with their father overseas and to be honest, it has been a life saver for us. The day he left I thought we were going to be stuck communicating with the awful computer video chats that went in and out every time you logged on. Thankfully for Talk Fusion, we did not have this problem. Not even once. The first week of my husband being overseas with the military, I had absolutely no idea about Talk Fusion what so ever. It was my sister in law who came across it and got a hold of me immediately. She did an online search to find it because she has well was sick and tired of glitch in her screen every time she tried calling him over the computer. When someone you love is fighting for your country, you want the best video program possible.

After the first week of using Talk Fusion, my mind was completely at ease knowing that every night before bed we could all talk with Matthew online without the worry of losing signal with him. It is because of Bob Reina that this is even a possibility for us. I actually got a little emotional after the first few times of using Talk Fusion because of the clear view of my husband, and I wrote Bob an email. I was shocked at how quickly he replied. He was extremely grateful for my email and very enthused to hear that my husband was serving in the military at that moment in time. What shocked me the most was when he offered me a free month of Talk Fusion to talk with my husband. I was extremely grateful of his offer and the gratitude he expressed towards my husband. I have yet to run into someone to contribute towards anything that has to do wit my husband serving overseas. It was absolutely amazing.

Even after my email conversation with Bob, I ended up doing some research on him and his career. Not only was he a great individual personally, but he was also a great man in the community and at his business. From what I read from reviews and recommendations, Bob Reina is an all around great CEO of talk Fusion. This probably has something to do with his 20 some odd years experience in relationship marketing. Alongside of his relationship marketing skills, he also is a huge contributor to many of animal causes as he has apparently always had a soft spot in his heart for furry friends. A man like this surely deserves some sort award, or two, or even three!

US Money Reserve Wonders why the Penny is Still in Use

Published / by thehillsadmin / 1 Comment on US Money Reserve Wonders why the Penny is Still in Use

Philip Diehl, the president of US Money Reserve, gave his opinion on the continued circulation the penny to PR Newswire on January 26.

While some people may enjoy picking up spare change it can not be denied that the value of the penny has gone down significantly over the years. If a person was to take the time to bend over and scoop one of these coins off the ground today they would be getting paid less for their time than working at a minimum wage job. What makes these infinitesimally small valued coins seem like an even worse idea is the fact that they cost much more to produce than they are worth. In fact, production of pennies costs American taxpayers $105 million each year.

Those who wish to keep the penny in circulation likely have their own best interests in mind as the largest proponents are members of zinc lobbies and those who assist in the production of the coin. One of their most popular arguments is stating that if the penny were no longer in use then companies would be forced to raise prices on consumer goods. In turn this would result in inflation. In a completely cash-based economy this statement may have been true, however in today’s world over three quarters of transactions take place thanks to technology and cash is rarely used. This could allow prices to remain the same when paying with cards. Furthermore, Diehl asserts that many companies would likely round their prices down a couple of pennies in order to try and gain a competitive advantage.

Others still propose that if the penny is to be taken out of circulation, why not the nickel which costs 9.4 cents to produce. The counter argument here is that the nickel could still be reformatted in order to cost less and eventually become profitable, but the penny is already made of 97.5 percent zinc making this impossible.

The US Money Reserve prides itself on expert knowledge and guide while giving superior customer service. These qualities help to make the process of purchasing precious metals as easy as possible. The US Money Reserve is the largest distributor of United States issued gold, silver, and platinum coins. Get coupons for US Money Reserve on RetailMeNot.
