Concept Overview Prepared by: Don Lewandowski – V.P. of Development
Company History Cafe Rio was started in 1997 in St. George, Utah by Steve and Tricia Stanley. Steve Stanley, a master chef of 30 years, created recipes that were inspired from traditional cooking of the Rio Grande Region of Northern Mexico, Southern Texas and New Mexico. In December 2004; Bob and Kathleen Nilsen, with SKM/APEX Partners, purchased the six-unit Cafe Rio chain, and today Cafe Rio has 26 units operating in four states, Utah, Nevada, Idaho and Arizona; with the bulk of the new units opening over the past three years. Cafe Rio Opened its first out-of-state location in Gilbert, AZ in July 2006, and in June 2007, Cafe Rio entered the Las Vegas market, and now have four units opened with a fifth one scheduled to open the first quarter of FY 2010. In December of 2009; Cafe Rio will be entering the Southern California market with the first location to open in Lake Forest, and then will follow with new unit openings in Manhattan Beach, Costa Mesa, Tustin and Oxnard.

Product Quality We prepare all of our food FRESH each day, from scratch using traditional recipes and techniques inspired from the Rio Grande Valley regions of Northern Mexico, Texas and New Mexico. Our hand shredded chicken is 100% fresh chicken breast. Our shredded beef and pork are all USDA Choice cuts. Our chilies are shipped in from the growers; our green chilies come from Hatch, New Mexico and red chilies are from Mexico. We hand make all of our tortillas each day and bake all of our wonderful desserts on site. Since nothing is pre-made, and every order is made fresh to the customers request, it is no problem for us to create something special for them that is not on the menu. Cafe Rio Sauces, salad dressings, salsas and guacamole are prepared fresh through out the day and include no artificial ingredients. The average Cafe Rio restaurant squeeze over 1,000 limes every morning – fresh lime juice is one of our key ingredients.
