Message from Jordan

Seasons Greetings Team JNE.

President of Jordan Nicholas Elliott Inc.

Every year seems to go by faster and faster. That must be why its been said "the days go slow but the

years go fast." I want to thank all of the operating teams at Mojo’s, Genghis Grill, Fun Bike Center,

Tampa Triumph, and Papa John's for a truly special year. Your hard work these past 6.5 years* laid

the groundwork for a year where all operating entities will have a positive finish. This validates that

we have focused on the right priorities: the customer experience, quality products, and sincere

appreciation for the sales our customers provide to us.

The JNE family has experienced some new additions this year. Congratulations to Elliott Dorsch,

David Dorsch, Shawn Rodel, and Dave Zink for the opening of Tampa Triumph in late September.

Congratulations to Bruce Ogle, Marc Murray, and Michael Kolnicky for the opening of our

newest Papa John's Pizza in Brandenton, Fl - Lakewood Ranch in mid October. We look forward to

the new opportunities these businesses will provide to our team.

This year we also intensified our focus on developing, defining, and living our company values in

order to fulfill our mission statement.. These values guide the way we operate and influence our

culture for outstanding outcomes. I'd like to share those values with you in case you are not familiar

with them.

At JNE we believe in the following values:

• Integrity - "Do the right thing" even when no one is looking

• Initiative - Ready to take action and do what must be done to ensure a positive result

• Enthusiasm - Positive energy is contagious

• Accountability - Do what you say you will do in all aspects with no surprises

• Perseverance - The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of

strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.

In coming issues of The Works! Newsletter, I will be sharing stories of our values in action,

supporting the JNE mission statement with the people who make up our special team. For now, have

a safe and prosperous holiday season!

We appreciate your contributions to our collective successes!

– Jordan Dorsch

JNE Celebrates on the High Seas!

The 2015 JNE Incentive Cruise was an absolute blast!

JNE’s top achievers came together to celebrate the successes

we’ve all enjoyed over the past year! Like many cruises

we’ve enjoyed over the years, the agenda was action packed

with plenty of rest, relaxation, recreation, leadership training

sessions, and most importantly PAARRRRRTY TIME (Just

ask Nathan Gimmateo and Larese White…)!

Our group of 40 set sail on the Carnival Conquest with stops

in Grand Turk in the islands of Turks & Caicos, Half Moon

Cay a private island in the Bahamas, and finally Nassau, one of the largest cities in the Bahamas. In

between seeing the sights, trips to the casino, and pickup games of basketball, I most enjoyed getting

to know my fellow cruisers on a much deeper level in a fun and casual atmosphere.

The entire celebration culminated on the night of JNE’s Top Ten Awards ceremony, where we

celebrated and cheered each other on. The event kicked off with a special rendition of “The Whip

Nae Nae” featuring me, Rich Hessner, Marc Murray, Bruce Ogle, Perry Dimalanta, and Gary

Stout and let’s just say our dance was worth the price of admission! Jordan Dorsch was our emcee

and delivered an emotionally charged program filled with energy, drama, fun, excitement, celebration

and even some tears of joy. Thank you all for letting loose with us on the high seas and making this

such an awesome event and thank you to Grace Dimalanta for organizing such a memorable

agenda. See you all on the next one!

– Nicholas Dorsch,

VP Marketing, Business Development & Corporate Counsel

Papa John's store #4650 Opens in Lakewood Ranch

On September 13 th , I brought all of my GM’s to the

site of what would become Papa John’s store #4650

at Lakewood Ranch. We all witnessed a gutted

building without ceiling with only half of its floor

left. This did not worry me at all as I had the help of

our JNE team from the office staff, supervisors,

Johnie Lewis, Bruce Ogle, and especially from my

managers at #2753 and #4650.. We were all

committed to the project and wanted to ensure that

the store and team did what it took to overcome all

of the challenges we were facing with construction

delays and training our new team.

Opening a restaurant is not easy; it takes a person

with the right values and well-matched team to get it done. Assistant manager Shannon Herrington

told me that her involvement in this project has been challenging and rewarding. It was with a sense

of accomplishment and store excitement that we walked through the doors of the newly completed

Lakewood Ranch. I speak for Michael Kolnicky GM PJ #4650 and our entire team when I say that

we took on the challenge, and rose to the occasion.. Store #4650 is no longer just four walls but a

team working hard to achieve our goals. We are proud to be part of the JNE family and cannot wait

to see what 2016 has in store for us at store #4650!

Operations Director Bradenton/Sarasota

TAMPA TRIUMPH Opens its Doors

On September 29 th we opened Tampa Triumph, at

7000 N Dale Mabry Highway, the first and only

Triumph flagship store in Florida.

The Tampa Triumph project represents a significant

and major investment in the future by our company

and a strong belief in the continuing growth of Dorsch

Inc. Tampa Triumph features Triumph’s new premium

modern retail design and includes a full lineup of new

Triumph motorcycles, accessories, parts, and clothing,

as well as preowned motorcycles of all makes and

models. Additionally, the service department includes

state of the art equipment for all motorcycle makes and

models.

Our greatest strength at Tampa Triumph is the experienced team of high performers. Our lead

technician, Matt Brewer, is fully certified and experienced in Triumph motorcycle maintenance and

repairs, and holds certifications in Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Polaris, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Honda.

Parts and service manager, Dave Zink, brings over 19 years of industry experience to the store and

our sales manager, Shawn Rodel, has been selling and managing in this industry for over 25 years,

and is a true guru of all things Triumph. Rounding off our sales staff are the five-star Google-rated

Mark Consiglio and JNE ringholder Amber Dimalanta. Our goal at Tampa Triumph is simple, to

provide a premium sales and service retail experience that properly represents the unique heritage of

the Triumph Motorcycles brand while executing our mission statement at Dorsch Inc.

JNE Mongolian Visits Dallas

Bruce Ogle, Robert Delgof, and myself, Alex Ogle, had the opportunity to

go to the national Genghis Mongolian Grill Business Meeting in Dallas,

Texas. The two days were packed of activities ranging from training, to

discussing Genghis Grill's future. The meeting became an important tool for

everyone that attended as all of us started to bounce ideas back and forth, one

GM to another. It gave me some ideas that I will work on in the future!

The trip was in my opinion successful as we all learned a lot and became

more energized to go and shape the future of Genghis Mongolian Grill! I

truly enjoyed the event and I thought the best part of it was the casino night

as it gave everyone a chance to let loose, have fun, and get to know everyone

on a personal level. Lastly, I want to mention that I am extremely grateful for

the opportunity to attend the meeting!

The Triumph Motorcycles Global Dealer

Conference in London, England

Elliott Dorsch, Ana Dorsch and myself had the great opportunity to go

to London for the Triumph Global conference at the end of October.

Dealers from around the world came to London to see the unveiling of all

of the cool new models of the Triumph brand. We met the owners of

Triumph UK, spent time with the entire team of Triumph America, and

dealers from around the world. We experienced the Triumph brand

image because it is the same as the British lifestyle in London, the way

people dress and act.

After the Triumph convention, Ana and I took the train over to Paris. Our

hotel was located in the Saint Germain-des-pres area, it was very central

to many attractions. In the few days we were there we visited the Eiffel

Tower, Notre Dame, The Arc De Triomphe, and the Louvre, where we

saw the Mona Lisa painting and many other great collections of paintings

and sculptors dated back to the 13th century, we spent five hours at the Ana & David Dorsch

Louvre. While we were in Paris we dined at several of the famous Cafes, and

enjoyed great cuisines from the French chefs, paired with great French wines. On our last night in Paris,

Ana and I went to the Moulin Rouge Cabaret Show, it was amazing.

We had a great time in Europe, and have great memories.
