  3. 3. Golden Krust has survived 2010 and now stands at the threshold of 2011 though not unscathed by the crisis created by an unstable economy. The challenges of the current era have prompted us to think innovatively. We are resolved more than ever, to maintain a strong brand image, utilizing the resources at our disposal, to ensure that Golden Krust con- tinues to be the brand of choice when it comes to Caribbean cuisine. The popular English proverb “when the going gets tough, the tough gets going" summarizes the past year very well which was characterized by both growth and decline. However the challenges taught us to do more with less – we managed to realize higher productivity even with a smaller work force by increasing manufacturing efficiencies. Re-training employees in the art of multi-tasking, cutting back on waste, utiliz- ing the newest technologies in inventory management and implement- ing a stringent quality assurance system helped us to remain afloat. The addition of several new products also increased institutional sales, and provided an impetus for future growth. Our franchisees were empowered to develop local store marketing initia- tives geared at improving sales performance under the careful guidance of our Marketing & Operations team who have been finding creative ways to build brand awareness and increase customer loyalty with the imple- mentation of several local store marketing initiatives. For the year ahead, we intend to continue this drive and encourage more of our franchisees to buy-in to this very cost efficient but effective means of increasing sales. Giving back to the community has always been our philosophy. I want to especially thank the many franchisees who jumped on board and per- formed unselfish acts of kindness, many times on their own initiative, to meet needs in their community. This was demonstrated in large part over Thanksgiving when several of our franchisees prepared and served over 1000 meals across the five boroughs of New York. Many of our franchsees are also actively involved with educational thrusts within their neighborhoods, providing incentives to motivate chil- dren to excel at school. With the help of our customers and franchisees we were also able to provide scholarships to twelve students with the funds collected in our Pennies for Change drive.I believe this kind of philanthropic spirit is not only good for business today, but will reap invaluable returns in the years to come. In addition to our unrelenting marketing and public relations efforts, our Research & Development Department continuously strives to create new products to add to our breakfast menu line-up. This day-part is generally underserved in most restaurants and the pressure is now on to find an affordable yet nutritious product that will fall into the grab-n-go concept. I believe very soon we will be able to roll out a more extensive breakfast patty line-up within our franchise division. I am very excited about the recent developments taking place with our newly expanded sauce product line. Our research has shown that the wet condiment category in the United States is an explosive and growing cat- egory just waiting to be tapped. Golden Krust intends to launch a new Hot Pepper Sauce, a Jerk Sauce, Island-Flavored Ketchup and Honey Jerk Barbecue Sauce. We are confident that we have all the right ele- ments in place to make a serious dent in that category. The sauces will be launched in mid- January and will be available for purchase within our franchise locations and on-line from the company’s website. On the retail front, our frozen patties continue to gain footholds in major supermarkets - the latest of which has been our entrance into the Shop-Rite chain which has 220 locations across the North East USA. Serious attention is being paid to the development of this arm of the company, driven by our vision of “taking the taste of the Caribbean to the world.” We anticipate that 2011 will be a significant year with easier accessibility to the “world’s best tasting” Golden Krust patties all over the United States. “Bye-bye burgers, pass on the pizza, forget the franks….anytime is patty time!” has been our marketing theme which can be seen in newly designed television commercials, print ads and collateral pieces. "While 2010 had its challenges, there were many upsides which motivat- ed us to keep forging ahead. There are several new stores to be opened in the first quarter of 2011, primarily in the South Florida region and we are exploring expansion to Chicago and Canada in the near future. We will not give up and we will not give in. We have a "tough" bunch of entrepreneurs and employees who we can count on to take Golden Krust to greater heights of success. On behalf of the GK Founders - Lloyd, Lauris, Jacqueline, Milton, Velma and my wife Lorna I wish to thank our customers, franchisees and the dedicated staff who make the Golden Krust organization a great place to work, partner and a home away from home" Meeting the challenges ahead!

  4. 4. "They work hard to provide GK's gold standard in service, food quality and ambiance to South Florida residents and have done an outstanding job at representing the brand…." says President & CEO - Lowell Hawthorne. The Claybornes believe in the GK brand and have invest- ed the time, effort and resources needed to make their restaurants comparable to any of the leading international franchise chains. Armed with expertise in the customer service, financial and media industries the Clayborne's bring a professional approach to their restaurants which is helping to attract the diverse mainstream clientele. Golden Krust now operates a total of seventeen stores and counting in Florida with nine of those locations resid- ing in the South Florida region. As the home to the world's best tasting patties, Golden Krust customers can't get enough of the flaky golden crust patties with eight deli- cious fillings. The restaurant's exquisite menu caters to a variety of tastes and nutritional requirements. In addition to its baked products - patties, breads and pastries - cus- tomers can choose from a full line of dishes including cur- ried goat, escoveitched fish, the chain's signature jerk chick- en and oxtail plus several vegetarian options. Golden Krust has a commitment to excellence that you can taste in every succulent bite. As one customer puts it "for those longing for a taste of the islands Golden Krust offers the real thing." As the nation's largest Caribbean franchise chain, Golden Krust has been aggressively developing the Florida market. It's brightly decorated yellow and red restaurants extend as far as Clermont, St. Petersburg, Port Charlotte, Orlando, Kissimmee, Tampa and in the south you will find Golden Krust stores located in Coral Springs, Sunrise, Lauderhill, North Lauderdale, Miami, Pembroke Pines and now in Miramar. GoldenTouch! The Clayborne's bring a professional approach to their restaurants which is helping to attract the diverse mainstream clientele. . Golden Krust opened yet another restaurant in South Florida in the Fall of 2010. This time the chain put down roots at 12316 Miramar Parkway in Miramar, FL in the Miramar Shopping Center. This latest addition to the chain is owned and operated by franchisees Keith & Bernadette Clayborne who along with their sons Kishon, Kendrick & Kendall own and operate four other Golden Krust restaurants in the South Florida region. The Clayborne's obviously have the midas touch….any Golden Krust restaurant they touch turns to gold. They now hold the distinction of owning the most restaurants within the system.

  5. 5. YES!Golden Krust Continues to Support Education. In spite of economic conditions... In the face of a difficult global business environment, which has resulted in many companies being forced to cut spending on philanthropic activities, Golden Krust has remained committed to investing in education" so said President and CEO of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill - Lowell Hawthorne. He further added that "cutting back on education is equal to ripping hope and opportunity from our nation's youths which has never been and will never be an option for his franchise chain." The Golden Krust President & CEO addressed an audience at the Bronx Bethany Church of the Nazarene last Thursday August 26th as he made presentations to seven col- lege bound students. Each of the awardees was presented with a purse of $2,000 along with a gift basket filled with baked Golden Krust products and school supplies. The 2010 Mavis & Ephraim Hawthorne Golden Krust Foundation Scholarship Awardees included Oladoyin Oladapo of Brooklyn, Otega Esegine of Brooklyn, Shantel Beckford of White Plains, Kristian Aspinall of Rockland, Audrey Morris of Bronx, Shabraj Miller of Bronx and Tatiana Flowers of White Plains, NY.

  6. 6. This marks the fifth year since the nation's largest Caribbean franchise chain has granted scholarships to aspiring young persons who hail from the communities in which Golden Krust operates. In 2005, the company established the Mavis & Ephraim Hawthorne Golden Krust Scholarship Foundation to carry out its philan- thropic mission of putting people before profit. Named in honor of the parents of the founders of Golden Krust, the Foundation since its inception has assisted over 100 students both here in the United States and Jamaica to achieve a firm educational foundation. In January of this year Golden Krust also pledged $100,000 to the University of the West Indies in Jamaica to cover the cost of tuition for five students for the dura- tion of their tenure at the university. S In 2006 the com- pany also established an endowment fund at Bronx Community College to assist needy students at that institution. Hawthorne said that a "mind is a terrible thing to waste and a positive community is everybody's business." He believes that education is the key to unlocking many doors of opportunity.

The Mavis & Ephraim Hawthorne Golden Krust Foundation Scholarship Award Program Golden Krust proudly contributes to multiple programs and charities throughout the United States. A paramount example of our commit- ment is The Mavis and Ephraim Hawthorne Golden Krust Foundation estab lished in 2005 to develop a constituency to support the well being and betterment of the community at large, through scholarships, internships, social services and wellness programs.

"I am honoured to be considered for the Golden Krust scholarship and even more honoured to be a recipient. My most heartfelt appreciation to the donor, GoldenKrust for providing students like myself with the opportunity to pursue higher education without having to agonize over finances." Alicia Raymond (Mona Campus) Alicia Raymond, a Jamaican, is pursuing her tertiary education in the Faculty of Social Sciences. "I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as one of the recipients of the Golden Krust scholarship. I am extremely grateful for the generosity and thoughtfulness of the American Foundation for the UWI in regards to this award in pursuing my career goals." Sovia Brown (Mona Campus) Sovia Brown, a Jamaican, is pursuing her career in the Faculty of Medical Sciences. "I have never received anything of such magnitude. Growing up I have always admired my classmates who had achieved great honour hoping that one day I could be gliding on a stage to receive a scholarship or some award for my academic performance. Receiving this Golden Krust scholarship has really done a lot for my self esteem, as I never thought it possible." Kenzil King (Mona Campus) Kenzil King, a Jamaican, is pursuing his tertiary studies in the Faculty of Social Sciences. "I can hardly find words to express how grateful and excited I was having heard that I was the recipient of the Golden Krust scholarship for this academic year. Without a scholarship or any financial aid, it is more than likely that I would have been a drop out from university. I am most appreciative of this benevolent gesture from the American Foundation for the UWI." Shion Betty (Mona Campus) Shion Betty, a Jamaican, is pursuing his undergraduate degree in the Faculty of Medical Sciences. "It is indeed a great honour to be a beneficiary of the prestigious Golden Krust scholarship. Even though the scholarship does not cover my full tuition it goes a far way in assisting me to significantly reduce the amount I will have to repay the Student Loan. On many occasions I have had to attend classes without the basic resources needed for my courses and have used perseverance, hard work, dedication and prayer as the tools to get through each semester at the University."

  8. 8. Bronx, NY- On Monday November 22, Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill (GK), the largest Caribbean franchise chain in the United States fed over 1000 persons at different shelters across the five NYC boroughs for the thanksgiving holiday. Meals consisting of turkey and of course, the chains signature jerk chicken, oxtail, rice and peas, patties and cake were served up in fine fare to several disadvantaged groups over a two day period. The chains thanksgiving outreach began on Sunday (Nov. 21) when GK fran- chisee Sandra Bryan of 67 South 4th Ave in Mt. Vernon, NY fed a total of 500 homeless and needy persons in her community, a project she has undertaken for the past three years. The festivities carried over to Monday November 22nd when Golden Krust's Corporate Office in conjunction with several Bronx franchisees put on a huge spread for 200 senior citizens at the Castle Hill Senior Center located at 625 Castle Hill Ave in the Bronx. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz was also on hand to share in the fes- tivities and had high praises for Golden Krust. Drinks were donated by Grace Kennedy & Co in partnership with Golden Krust. Later that evening, Golden Krust's executive management team along with several other franchisees provided meals for residents of THANKSGIVING GIVING! four Providence House shelters in Brooklyn and Queens. In addi- tion, over 80 children were treated to a meal along with cake and ice-cream donated by the Ice Cream Factory at the Saratoga Family Inn located on Rockaway Blvd, Queens. Food was in abundance at every location and so were the thank you's from all those who ben- efitted from the chain's generosity. Over one hundred and fifty residents at the West-Help Center in Westchester county were also treated to a bountiful thanksgiving meal courtesy of GK franchisee Charmaine Golding of 178 Fulton Street in White Plains, an endeavor that she has single-handedly taken on for the past three years. "Giving back to the community for Thanksgiving has become an annual outreach for Golden Krust," said Candice Richards, GK's Marketing & PR Manager."The company's philosophy is to put people before profit and we demonstrate our commitment to the communities in which we operate by meeting tangible needs" she added. Donating food to charitable organizations is not just a once a year event for Golden Krust. The company rarely says no to donation requests. In any given year, the chain donates over 2000 cases of patties as well as meals to various community events organized by churches, schools and non-profit organizations. "It's just our way of showing we care", she further added.

  9. 9. G K M A G A Z I N E V O L U M E 7 • W I N T E R 2 0 1 1 8 "Weare particularly honored to be involved in the fight against breast cancer which affects almost every household in America." Says Lowell Hawthorne, President & CEO. According to the statis- tics, one woman in eight who lives to age 85 will devel- op breast cancer during her lifetime and every two min- utes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. The harsh reality is that women in the United States develop breast cancer more than any other type of cancer except for skin cancer. For the entire month of October, Golden Krust embarked upon a Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign within its entire fran- chise chain under the banner "Eat for the Cause". For every Golden Krust chicken patty purchased within the month of October, three percent (3%) of that sale will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The color of the Golden Krust chicken patty bags have also been changed to pink to help bring added excitement and exposure to the campaign. Company executives and customers also joined the throng of survivors and well-wishers in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that was held on October 17 at Orchard Beach in the Bronx. Free Golden Krust t-shirts were given to persons who had registered to walk with the Golden Krust Pink Team on the day. Over 8000 persons turned up to show solidarity with the cause at Orchard Beach which was the perfect setting for a beautiful and crisp autumn morning. Golden Krust Joins The Fight Against Breast CancerGolden Krust joined forces with the American Cancer Society during the month of October to raise the level of awareness among the Caribbean & African American communities about the dreaded disease - breast cancer. This marks the third year that the company has deliberately sought to align itself with this cause. "Eat for the Cause". For every Golden Krust chicken patty purchased within the month of October, three percent (3%) of that sale will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Pictured Above: The GK Pink Team including members of staff, customers and survivors made strides against breast cancer…
  10. 10. With the help of all its customers the company hopes to raise a substantial amount of money which will be used to spread knowledge and foster hope in the fight against breast cancer. Every dollar donated will be used by the American Cancer Society to fund research programs aimed at discovering treatments to improve breast cancer survival and reduce recurrence. Golden Krust is com- mitted to continuing its support of the American Cancer Society as they work assiduously to create a world with more birthdays - where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life. Here are answers to a list of frequently asked questions adapted from the National Breast Cancer Foundation's website: Can physical activity reduce the risk of breast cancer? Exercise pumps up the immune system and lowers estrogen levels.With as little as four hours of exercise per week, a woman can begin to lower her risk of breast cancer. Can a healthy diet help prevent breast cancer? A nutritious, low-fat diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. A high-fat diet increases the risk because fat triggers estrogen production that can fuel tumor growth. Does smoking cause breast cancer? At this point in time there is no conclusive link between smoking and breast cancer. However, due to the number of health risks associated with smoking, quitting can significantly increase survival rates. Can drinking alcohol increase the risk of breast cancer? One or two drinks a day has been shown to slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. The greater the levels consumed, the higher the risk. Is there a link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer? There is an increased risk of breast cancer for women under 35 who have been using birth control pills for more than ten years. How often should I do a breast self-exam (BSE)? Give yourself a breast self-exam at least once a month. Look for any changes in breast tissue, such as changes in size, a lump, dimpling or puckering of the breast, or a discharge from the nipple. If you discover a persistent lump in your breast or any changes in breast tissue, it is very important that you see a physician immediately. However, 8 out of 10 lumps are benign, or not cancerous. Does a family history of breast cancer put someone at a higher risk? If you have a grandmother, mother, sister, or daughter who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, this does put you in a higher risk group. Have a baseline mammogram at least five years before the age of breast cancer onset in any close relatives, or starting at age 35. See your physician at any sign of unusual symptoms. FAQ’S Are Mammograms Painful? Mammography does compress the breasts and can sometimes cause slight discomfort for a very brief period of time. Patients who are sensitive should schedule their mammograms a week after their menstrual cycle so that the breasts are less tender. How does menstrual and reproductive history affect breast cancer risks? Women who began their menstrual cycles before age 12, have no children, or had their first child at 30 or older, or began menopause after 55 are at a higher risk. How Often Should I Go To My Doctor For A Checkup? You should have a physical every year. If any unusual symptoms or changes in your breasts occur before your scheduled visit, do not hesitate to see the doctor immediately. What Kind of Impact Does Stress Have On Breast Cancer? Although some studies have shown that factors such as traumatic events and losses can alter immune system functions, these studies have not pro- vided any evidence of a direct cause-and-effect relationship between stress and breast cancer. An area currently being studied is whether or not stress reduction can improve immune response and slow progression in women diagnosed with breast cancer.

  11. 11. The company has also developed 2 new additions to the condiment line as part of its go-to-market strategy. The wet condi- ment line that will soon be available in GK restaurants and eventually every major supermarket and chain stores include the tried and proven hot pepper sauce and jerk sauce coupled with the new Island Flavored Ketchup and a Honey Barbecue Jerk Sauce. Taste tests have confirmed that these new prod- ucts are superior in taste and are poised to steal significant market share away from the competi- tion. Sales of GK's micro-waveable 2 and 10 pack Beef Patties have also increased tremendously over the past year with more growth anticipated as the product gains entrance into many major retail outlets nationwide. Golden Krust packaged delights are now proudly displayed in several frozen food isles in chains stores such as Costco, Pathmark, Shoprite, Shoppers, Jewel Osco, Acme, Food 4Less, Price Chopper, Woodmans and a host of independent supermarkets, covering a wide range of states. For 2011 we are expecting that GK's retail division will expand explosively as a result of the overwhelming amount of new distribution outlets projected to come on board. There is no stopping the retail segment as the company intends to aggres- sively market its products to institutions, supermarket chains and will eventually be venturing outside the national market. The company's vision is to take the taste of the Caribbean to the world. How does the company plan to do this? "Through research and development of new products" says President Lowell Hawthorne. Over the years in addition to its famous patties and baked goods, the company has quietly but qualitatively manufac- tured its own branded recipe of jerk sauces, hot pepper sauce and jerk seasonings, sold within its 120 franchise locations. The wet condiment category in the United States is estimated as a $158 million dollar industry with projections for further growth. Golden Krust is determined to carve out a significant piece of that pie. The trend towards convenience foods, higher demand for exotic cuisine and innovative packaging continue to drive demand for food accompani- ments and ingredients such as condiments and sauces. Added to the exposure caused by the changing ethnic mix of national populations, people are journeying abroad in ever-increas- ing numbers and broadening their food hori- zons. In addition, consumers have become more thrifty in their spending which is good news for the condiment and cooking sauce category as the sting of tough economic times have forced the market to cut back on spending. With customers eating out less and trying their hands at restaurant quality, home-cooked meals, condiment and sauce vendors will attract new customers and retain existing cus- tomers by introducing tasty and diverse flavor profiles in one multi-use product. Golden Krust intends to capitalize on this growing trend by launching it's sauces in the mainstream retail arena. Something Exciting & Newis Always Cookingin GK's Retail Division. Leveraging its strong brand equity and the success of its frozen retail packages in supermarkets and chain stores along the north-east and mid-west regions of the United Sates, Golden Krust is committed to establishing a firm footing in the retail market over the coming years.

  12. 12. As National Caribbean American Heritage Month marked its 5th Anniversary, Golden Krust -the nation's largest Caribbean franchise chain made history It celebrated the month in its own unique way with the staging of a musical float parade throughout the streets of Brooklyn on June 26, 2010. The festivities kicked off at 10am at 7 Flatbush Ave at the chain's first ever Brooklyn loca- tion and ended at 9pm with the last stop at 998 Flatbush Ave. The brightly decorated Golden Krust float captured the attention of customers, well-wishers, commuters and pedestrians as the truck drove through the neighborhoods and commercial districts of the busy borough making brief stops at each of its locations. Live music was provided by K.C. - "the Caribbean James Brown of Soca" Band. Customers were also treated to free cocktail beef patties, branded key- rings and t-shirts on the day as part of the celebration. Golden Krust's musical treat was a welcome diversion for Brooklyn residents as they went about their usual business on the busy weekend. One customer remarked that the float reminded him of the popular West Indian Day parade held in Brooklyn each year. At each stop "Brooklynites" stopped to gawk, take pictures of the float, or dance to the pulsating rhythms while they interacted with the contingent from GK's Corporate headquarters who came out in full support of the festivities. Diane Johnson - Ms. Jamaica USA also joined in on the festivities as she rode the float, much to the delight of her adoring fans.

  13. 13. GK's Marketing & PR Manager - Candice Richards said that the company thought it fitting to stage this celebration to mark the significance of Caribbean American Heritage Month and also to say thanks to all its valued customers in Brooklyn - which is home to the majority of Golden Krust locations. The implementation of Caribbean American Heritage Month in our nation's history was initiated by Congresswoman Barbara Lee who wanted to formally recognize the significance of Caribbean people and their descendants in the history and cul- ture of the United States. Since the resolution's passage in the House of Representatives, the White House has issued an annual proclamation recognizing June as Caribbean-American Heritage Month, beginning in 2006 with President George W. Bush. President Barack Obama in his offical address issued on May 28, 2010 said “ we celebrate the triumph of Caribbean Americans, a diverse community that encompasses many nationalities and languages. They have become leaders in every sector of American life while maintaining the varied traditions of their countries of origin. Caribbean Americans enrich our national character and strength- en the fabric of our culture, and we are proud they are part of the American family." Golden Krust intends to renew its celebration of Caribbean American Heritage Month by staging similar parades throughout the different regions in which it is located. Stay tuned for more details. President Barack Obama in his official address issued on May 28, 2010 said "we celebrate the triumph of Caribbean Americans, a diverse community that encompasses many nationalities and languages.

  15. 15. G K M A G A Z I N E V O L U M E 7 • W I N T E R 2 0 1 1 Control your thermostat: Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter and a few degrees higher in the summer to save on heating and cooling costs. Install compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) when your older incandescent bulbs burn out. Unplug appli- ances when you're not using them. Or, use a "smart" power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts energy use. Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water. Save water to save money. Take shorter showers to reduce water use and lower your water and heating bills. Install a low-flow showerhead. Make sure you have a faucet aerator on each faucet. These inexpen- sive appliances conserve heat and water, while keeping water pressure high. Conserve energy: Walk or bike to work. This Saves on gas and improve your cardiovascular health. Consider telecommuting if you live far from your work. Or move closer. Even if this means paying more rent, it could save you money in the long term. Lobby your local government to increase spending on sidewalks and bike lanes. With little cost, these improvements can pay huge dividends in bettering your health and reducing traffic. Eat smart. If you eat meat, add one meatless meal a week. Try a Golden Krust vegetable, spinach or soy patty or even a large serving of our steamed vegetables as a flavorful substitute to meat Meat costs a lot at the store - and it's even more expensive when you consider the related environmental and health costs. Buy locally raised, humane, and organic meat, eggs, and dairy whenever you can. Purchasing from local farmers keeps money in the local economy. Skip the bottled water: Use a water filter to purify tap water instead of buying bot- tled water. Bottled water expensive and it generates large amounts of container waste. Bring a reusable water bottle, with you when traveling or at work. Think before you buy: Go online to find new or gently used secondhand products. Consider a service like craigslist or FreeSharing to track down furniture, appliances, and other items cheaply or for free. Check out garage sales, thrift stores, and consignment shops for clothing and other everyday items. When making purchas- es, make sure you know what's "Good Stuff" and what isn't. Borrow instead of buying: Borrow from libraries instead of buying personal books and movies. This saves money, not to mention the ink and paper that goes into printing new books. Share power tools and other appliances. Get to know your neighbors while cutting down on the number of things cluttering your closet or garage. Keep electronics out of the trash: Keep your cell phones, computers, and other electronics as long as possible. Donate or recycle them responsibly when the time comes. E-waste contains mercury and other toxics and is a growing environmental problem. Recycle your cell phone. Ask your local government to set up an electronics recycling and hazardous waste collection event. Make your own cleaning supplies: You can make very effective, non-toxic cleaning products whenever you need them. All you need are a few simple ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap. Making your own cleaning products saves money, time, and packaging-not to mention your indoor air quality. A greener, more sustainable earth is everyone’s responsibility! GK is dedicated to sustainability and eco-friendly practices and we offer you these simple guidelines to help you reduce your carbon footprint. 15

  18. 18. HelloWorld! Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specif- ic groups.The internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-hand informa- tion and experiences about golfing, gar- dening, developing friendships or pro- fessional alliances, finding employment, business-to-business marketing and even groups sharing information.The topics and interests are as varied and rich as the story of our world. Social networking websites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members share common interests in hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them. The internet gives individuals from all around the world access to social networking sites. This means that although you are in the United States, you could develop an online friendship with someone in Denmark or India. Not only will you make new friends, but you just might learn a thing or two about new cultures or new languages and learning is always a good thing. While there are a number of social networking websites that focus on particular interests, there are others that do not. The websites without a main focus are often referred to as "traditional" social net- working websites and usually have open memberships. This means that anyone can become a member, no matter what their hobbies, beliefs, or views are. However, once you are inside this online com- munity, you can begin to create your own network of friends and eliminate members that do not share common interests or goals. There are dangers associated with social networking including data theft and viruses, which are on the rise. The most prevalent danger though often involves online predators or individuals who claim to be someone that they are not. Although danger does exist with networking online, it also exists in the real world, You are advised to proceed with caution online. By being aware of your cyber-surround- ings and who you are talking to, you should be able to safely enjoy social net- working online. It will take many phone conversations to get to know someone, but you really won't be able to make a clear judgement until you can meet each other in person. Use common sense and listen to your inner voice. Golden Krust has entered the social network by establishing its very own Facebook account. We invite you to find us on facebook or follow us on twitter @goldenkrustbkry. Customers and fans can be kept abreast of special offers and happenings within the chain and discuss their experiences at our different stores nation- wide. Golden Krust facebook and twitter followers have the power to influence decision making at the company by providing valuable feedback. So next time you are online check us out and make a friend request. We want to be your Caribbean restaurant of choice off-line and on-line as well.
