OMEGA MVP Serves Stick-to-Your Ribs Breakfast and Lunch Selections
Nestled in a Scottsdale, Arizona, shopping center is a gem among diners. Known for their hearty, homemade breakfast and lunch items, Perk Eatery has become a popular destination in the Scottsdale and Phoenix restaurant scene since opening just 2 1/2 years ago. In fact, Perk is such a shining star that it recently made its national TV debut with a featured segment on Food Network’s popular show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
Perk serves breakfast and lunch daily and is known for using only the freshest, natural ingredients in their dishes, including organic fruits, vegetables and coffee and hormone-free, naturally raised beef, pork and chicken. Only local, cage-free eggs are used, and dairy products come from a local supplier. Dressings, sauces and marinades are always made fresh in Perk’s own kitchen.
“I won’t serve anything that I wouldn’t feed my own child,” says Pauline Thomas Martinez, who owns Perk along with her husband, Carmen.
A third-generation restaurant owner, Pauline grew up in the business and brings a lifetime of experience to Perk. She and Carmen work alongside each other daily, sharing all of the responsibilities of running Perk.
“It’s a team effort, and at the level we operate, it takes a village… literally,” Pauline comments.
Perk’s breakfast and lunch menu features a huge variety of egg and omelet dishes, griddle favorites and breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Lunch selections include unique sandwiches, burgers, homemade soup and salads, as well as classic choices. The menu has a definite southwestern theme, with some of Pauline’s Midwestern and Mediterranean influence evident throughout.
While everything on Perk’s menu is considered a specialty, Pauline admits that the pancakes are her favorite. They are light and fluffy and come both plain or with your choice of berries or caramelized banana toppings.
Perk is no stranger to winning awards — the restaurant was named “Best Neighborhood Breakfast – North Phoenix” and “Best Readers’ Choice Breakfast” in 2012. Being featured on the wildly popular “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” was an entirely new experience, however.
The Food Network show featuring host Guy Fieri originally contacted Perk in January regarding a possible taping. According to Pauline, the process starts with a brief phone interview. Perk then sent the show a list of their most popular dishes. If the show is interested, they contact you for another, much longer phone interview. Then the information is sent to Guy and the show’s producers who decide which restaurants to feature. Guy personally decides which dishes to feature on the show.
“From the first phone call to the actual filming, it was about three weeks,” says Pauline. “Filming took only three days. The whole process moves very fast.”
While they’re not sure how becoming a national restaurant star will affect Perk in the long run, Pauline and Carmen still adhere to the standards and strategies that led them to success — start with only the freshest most natural ingredients while working to preserve the surrounding community. Definitely a recipe for success.
Perk Eatery is located at 6501 E. Greenway Parkway in Scottsdale, Arizona. They are open from 6:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., 7 days a week. Contact them at 480.998.6026 or visit their website at http://perkeatery.com.
What do an Argentinean forest and the game of baseball have in common? The answer? Guayaibi wood, and our latest OMEGA MVP merchant Southbat is the link between the two.
In 2008, Southbat co-founder Luis Cabrera came across an Argentinean sawmill that was cutting a hardwood timber called Guayaibi. Used mainly for furniture, flooring and tool handles, the wood was dense, yet flexible. Further studies showed that Guayaibi had similar characteristics to that of maple and ash, the same woods that are typically used in the making of baseball bats. From there, the idea was born to start producing Guayaibi wooden baseball bats in the forests of Argentina.
Luis and his business partner in the U.S., Sebastian Naum, took a leap of faith in 2010 when they introduced their Southbat Guayaibi wood bats to the United States at the American Baseball Coaches’ Association convention in Dallas, Texas. The reception was lukewarm — feedback indicated that the bats were too heavy and didn’t have the correct balance and shape. So, the pair went back to the lab to discover how to decrease the bat’s weight and find the perfect feel.
After countless tests, Luis and Sebastian developed a unique drying method for Guayaibi wood, which resulted in a grain that was denser and stronger than maple or ash but still more flexible. Southbat returned to the United States in 2012 with a revolutionary wood bat that had improved safety, more durability and provided more “pop.” This time, their products received rave reviews.
Southbat’s one-piece solid wood bats are constructed from start-to-finish in the company’s Argentinean manufacturing facilities. The bats are approved by the South American Confederation and PanAm Confederation of Baseball and recently received approval from the International Baseball Federation. Southbat Guayaibi wood bats were used by some international players in the this spring’s World Baseball Classic, and their products are also used in countless amateur and collegiate wooden bat leagues across the United States.
While not yet approved for game-use by Major League Baseball, many MLB players use Southbat’s products for batting practice. In addition, coaches from the San Francisco Giants recently started using Southbat Fungos for fielding practice, drills and warm-ups. Full MLB approval for Guayaibi wood bats during games is not far off, believes Sebastian Naum. That approval, he predicts, will result in Southbat and Guayaibi wood bats becoming “the new big thing in baseball.”
Southbat, however, is much more than a baseball equipment company. The company supports communities and organizations in need — both in Argentina and the United States — with volunteerism and sports equipment donations.
“We started with a product that we believed in,” says Sebastian, but Southbat also wants to be a part of something much bigger.”
As environmental sustainability is also important to Southbat, the company has partnered with Argentinean authorities and experts to develop sustainability practices. Rather than clear cutting the forest, Southbat engages in selective logging, which has been shown to promote forest growth. In addition, the company has planted more than 2,000 Guayaibi tree seedlings since 2011. Southbat firmly believes that only way to grow the company is by contributing to enhance both our communities and environment.
Southbat products are available in different models, sizes, finishes and colors. Bats can be purchased directly from the company, as well as through their trusted distributorship network. You can reach Southbat by calling 949.851.4612 or visiting their website at www.southbat.com.
The OMEGA MVP program was organized to help recognize, celebrate and promote the merchants, vendors and partners of OMEGA Processing Solutions. Southbat has been an OMEGA merchant since 2012.
Associated Premium Corporation Is Leader in Crowded Promotional Products Market
When you have approximately 27,000 competitors, how do you separate yourself from the pack? If you’re Associated Premium Corporation, you draw upon your three decades of industry experience to provide top-level consultation and service that allows your customers to meet their promotional program goals.
“We offer over 500,000 promotional items,” says Randy Ficke, President and CEO of Cincinnati-based Associated Premium Corporation. “It doesn’t make sense for us to just promote a certain product for all of our customers.”
Whether the goal is to increase sales, reduce employee attrition, improve safety or boost attendance at sporting events, Associated Premium’s sales representatives work with clients to find products that are meaningful to their promotion. After interviewing the client to determine the promotion goals, timeline and budget, Associated Premium researches the demographics of the campaign’s target market. When the process is complete, the client is presented with various product ideas for their promotion.
“We want our clients to find items that will help them achieve the results they are looking for,” continues Randy. “We help them move that needle, then we’re both successful.”
Associated Premium Corporation started in 1982 by supplying banks and savings and loans with premium and incentive merchandise, such as gifts for opening a checking or savings account. As markets have evolved over the years, so has the company and its product offerings. With its own in-house art department, embroidery facility, warehousing and fulfillment programs, web store and both domestic and overseas factory partners, Associated Premium is among the top 2% of all promotional suppliers in the nation. The company has developed long-term relationships with its suppliers and never buys from a supplier that has not been personally visited by Associated Premium personnel.
“Our supply sources are a vital link in our chain of service,” says Randy. ” We are very careful with whom we do business.”
While 60% of their business remains with corporate partners, the company is also a major player in the professional and collegiate game day giveaways marketplace.
“We started in the sports business in the mid 1980s with an umbrella giveaway for the Cincinnati Reds and Klosterman Bakery,” says Randy.
In the years since that first foray into the giveaway market, Associated Premium has provided promotional concepts and merchandise for the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA, motor sports and thoroughbred horse racing industries. Recently, the company had the honor of being named one of only four Official Preferred Vendors for In-Stadium Promotions by Major League Baseball. Potential suppliers submitted RFPs and were evaluated on operational and financial stability, quality methods, price and their commitment to diversity.
Says Randy, “Major League Baseball selected us from a field of 35 vendors, a true endorsement to our clients that we are among the best in our industry for innovative and creative concepts, products, customer service, value and on-time delivery.”
In 2012, Associated Premium partnered with the Cincinnati Reds on many giveaway items, including a BBQ set, which was named “Best Weekender” giveaway item of 2012 by ESPN Magazine. Another notable giveaway program was last year’s Baltimore Orioles Legends Series of replica bronze statues. Each statue depicted one of the organization’s Hall of Fame members, and the program resulted in many sold-out Orioles games.
Associated Premium Corporation is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and has a nationwide sales force. Call them at 513.679.4444 or visit their website at www.associatedpremium.com.
The OMEGA MVP program was organized to help recognize, celebrate and promote the merchants, vendors and partners of OMEGA Processing Solutions. Associated Premium Corporation has been an OMEGA merchant since 2010.
A Celebration of History, Culture and Hope – OMEGA MVP National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library Rebuilds, Expands After Epic 2008 FloodMarch 25, 2013
Nestled in America’s heartland is a museum and library dedicated to the history and culture of the Czech and Slovak people. Located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) has grown from a three-room house to a sprawling learning and discovery campus in the city’s Czech Village. In 2012, the museum and library served 63,000 people from all 50 states and 23 different countries, with a goal of “inspiring people from every background to connect to Czech and Slovak history and culture.” Perhaps even more inspiring to the Cedar Rapids community, is the museum and library’s story of rebirth and rebuilding after a devastating 2008 flood.
The majority of early Czech and Slovak immigrants came to the United States from Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia between 1865 and 1914. Many of them settled in the Midwest, drawn by affordable land, job opportunities in factories and farming. Wishing to preserve their history and culture for future generations a group of Czech immigrant descendants started the Czech Fine Arts Foundation in the mid-1970s. Within four years, the group had gathered enough artifacts and documents to open a museum in a three-room house, and the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library was born. As the NCSML attracted more visitors and collections, a move to a commercial building on the current museum campus was soon made. By 1995, the NCSML celebrated the dedication of a new 16,000 square-foot building with Presidents Bill Clinton of the United States, Václav Havel of the Czech Republic and Michal Kováč of the Slovak Republic.
As the NCSML continued its growth, temporary exhibit facilities were added, and the library collections expanded. Then, in 2008, an epic flood of the Cedar River nearly destroyed the NCSML campus, causing more than $11 million in damage. Six structures owned by the organization were destroyed, and the water level in the museum and library reached a depth of eight feet.
Faced with overwhelming destruction, the NCSML did what the Czech and Slovak people have done throughout history – persevered. Library collections were repaired, and the museum was housed in a variety of temporary locations while renovations continued. In an effort to prevent a future disaster, the museum and library structure – all 1,500 tons of it – was moved 480 feet from its location near the Cedar River, raised 11 feet and pushed onto a new elevated foundation. Construction then began to triple the building’s size.
Between 10,000-12,000 people attended the renovated museum and library’s Grand Opening celebration in July 2012. The weekend’s festivities included a parade, opening ceremony, concerts, lectures, dancers and performances by the Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre from New York City
Today the museum and library houses both temporary and permanent exhibits, as well as the organization’s extensive library and artifact collections. Faces of Freedom: The Czech & Slovak Journey, the new permanent exhibit at the NCSML opening July 15, takes visitors through real people’s stories of the World Wars, life under Communism and the pursuit of a better life. Step back in time with the 1800s Immigrant Home that portrays the urban immigrant experience in 19th century Iowa. The NCSML also has an ongoing oral histories project that captures and preserves the stories of Czechs and Slovaks who left their homeland during the Cold War and settled in the United States.
Temporary exhibits provide fresh exposure to various aspects of Czech and Slovak history and culture. Current temporary exhibits include photographs of the 1968 Prague Spring uprising and a collection of contemporary paintings by Czechoslovak artists caught behind the Iron Curtain. An exhibit featuring 285 lapel pins made famous by former Secretary of State and United Nations Ambassador Madeleine Albright opens in May.
The NCSML is proud of its ability to take the Czech and Slovak culture and history and make it relevant to today’s visitors, no matter their ethnic background.
“We use the Czech and Slovak experience to reflect on the American experience,” Trisha continues. “You don’t have to be of Czech or Slovak descent to be able to relate.”
Located at 1400 Inspiration Pl. SW, the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library is open from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Mondays – Saturdays and from 12 noon – 4 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, visit their website at http://www.ncsml.org or call 319.362.8500.

In response to a national rise in data breaches and system compromises, OMEGA Processing is partnering with Compliance Solutions Resources (CSR), a national leader in PCI and PII security, to provide our merchants with a powerful data protection solution. The new program will have four components — PCI ToolKit, Breach Reporting ToolKit, Vulnerability Scanning and Breach Insurance. OMEGA Processing merchants will be enrolled in the data protection program starting in March 2013.
General Program Questions
Why do I need to be worried about data security and my business?
The simple answer is merchants are required to meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) in order to accept card-based payments. Beyond the regulatory requirements, however, there are additional factors for businesses to consider. The ramifications of data breaches can be substantial including costs and expenses, private lawsuits, criminal penalties, as well as lost consumer trust. Consumer surveys indicate that 79% of customers lose trust in a company that experiences a data breach. Additionally, 74% of consumers say they will not continue to patronize a business where they feel their personal information is vulnerable to exposure. Other studies have shown that a data breach costs companies, on average, $214 for each piece of compromised data.
How does OMEGA Processing’s Data Protection solution increase my data security?
The program’s PCI ToolKit guides you through the process involved in becoming PCI compliant. You will use the toolkit to complete your Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), develop security policies and complete employee security training. Our data protection program also features quarterly Vulnerability Scanning for merchants with IP terminals, virtual terminals and POS systems. Scanning detects any vulnerable points in a merchant’s IP systems so that they may be remedied BEFORE card/cardholder data theft occurs.
What happens in the event my business experiences a data breach?
Currently in 46 states, the law states a merchant MUST proactively report any actual or suspected data loss in order to avoid fines, penalties and even prosecution. In the event of an actual or suspected data breach, our data protection program’s Breach Reporting ToolKit reports such information to the correct authorities in the correct timeframe. And, OMEGA Processing also provides each of its merchants with $100,000 of Breach Insurance protection to cover potential costs in the event you do experience a breach of customer credit card and/or cardholder data.
Do all merchants need all four of the program components?
All OMEGA Processing merchants are enrolled in the PCI ToolKit, Breach Reporting ToolKit and Breach Insurance protection policy. Merchants with IP terminals, virtual terminals or POS systems are also enrolled in quarterly Vulnerability Scanning. Merchants who run only dial terminals, wireless terminals over a phone line or mobile-only processing do not require scanning.
What is the timing for implementing OMEGA’s data protection program?
In March 2013, all current OMEGA merchants will receive enrollment letters in the mail from OMEGA Processing/CSR. New merchants who are boarded after March 1, 2013, will be enrolled into the program at boarding and will receive their enrollment information in the mail shortly thereafter. After receiving enrollment information you will use the PCI ToolKit to complete your Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and become PCI compliant. You will receive regular reminders from CSR until the PCI ToolKit process is completed.
What if a merchant does not become PCI compliant after receiving several notifications to do so?
OMEGA Processing and all of our merchants are required to be PCI compliant. If, after multiple notifications, a merchant still has not completed their SAQ and achieved PCI compliance, OMEGA will institute a monthly PCI non-compliance fee. Merchants have until August 1, 2013, to achieve PCI compliance and avoid the non-compliance fee.
PCI Compliance and the PCI ToolKit
What are PCI Standards?
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a common set of industry tools and measurements that help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information such as debit or credit card number, expiration date and card security code. PCI DSS applies to all entities involved in payment card processing, including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers, as well as all other entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data. To be PCI compliant, you must meet the PCI DSS.
What is the PCI ToolKit?
The PCI ToolKit is an interactive security questionnaire system that guides you through completing your Self Assessment Questionnaire (see below for more information on SAQs) and achieving PCI compliance. The toolkit is customized, meaning the responses that you give to individual questions determines which path of questions the toolkit will follow.
What is the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ)?
The Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) is the actual set of questions that you must answer in order to satisfy the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI ToolKit will guide you through the process of completing your SAQ. There are currently five SAQs available to answer — A, B, C-VT, C and D. You will complete the SAQ that best fits how you process credit cards on a per-Merchant Identification Number (MID) basis. Many merchants have more than one MID. For example, you may have a MID for your retail store and a separate MID for an ecommerce store. A SAQ for each MID must be completed at least annually – or more often in the event of a data breach — in order to maintain your PCI compliance.
Which version of the SAQ is appropriate for which type of merchants?
In general, here are descriptions of the various SAQ types.
SAQ A – Card-not-present merchants, all cardholder data functions outsourced
SAQ B – Merchants with only imprint machines or only standalone, dial-out terminals. No electronic cardholder data storage
SAQ C-VT – Merchants with web-based virtual terminals, No electronic cardholder data storage
SAQ C – Merchants with payment application systems (for example, point-of-sale systems) that are connected to the Internet (for example, via DSL, cable modem, etc.), No electronic cardholder data storage
SAQ D – All other merchants and all service providers defined by a payment brand as eligible to complete an SAQ
What SAQ versions does the PCI ToolKit cover?
PCI ToolKit contains all of the material required to complete Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQs) A, B, C-VT, C and D.
How long does it take to complete the SAQ using the PCI ToolKit?
While it depends on which SAQ, the number of MIDs and the level of merchant knowledge, on average it requires 20 – 40 minutes to complete the SAQ the first time. After you initially complete your SAQ, that time will be significantly reduced. Normally, a business will only need to update their SAQ one time per year.
What type of customer support is offered?
OMEGA Processing Solutions customer service is available by calling 866.888.9724 Ext. 7. E-mail support from CSR can be launched from any page of PCI ToolKit. PCI experts respond in writing very quickly, usually in minutes, and no longer than one business day.
Will I receive reminders that I need to complete my SAQ?
PCI ToolKit sends out e-mail and U.S. postal mail reminders for merchants to complete their initial SAQ. When annual updates are due, periodic e-mail reminders are also sent. OMEGA Processing receives reports on which merchants still have to complete their SAQ or annual update and are non-PCI Compliant.
Data Breaches and the Breach Reporting ToolKit
What is the Breach Reporting ToolKit?
Currently in 46 states, the law states that a merchant MUST proactively report any actual or suspected data loss in order to avoid fines, penalties and even prosecution. The Breach Reporting ToolKit is a notification system that — in the event of a suspected or actual data breach — delivers the right information at the right time to the right regulating bodies. In such an instance, the merchant can call a certified risk and privacy expert who will evaluate the situation, determine the scope of required notifications and initiate the notification system. This system will provide proactive notification to over 300 regulatory bodies within mandated timelines and in the format(s) required by law. Information on how to initiate the Breach Reporting ToolKit System is included in your enrollment letter from CSR/OMEGA Processing.
What is the difference between PCI and PII?
PII, or Personally Identifiable Information, is a broad category of data that encompasses both payment card information and other pieces of information that uniquely identify, or can be used to identify, an individual. PCI relates to payment card information and is just one aspect of PII. The legal definition of PII varies by state. Most definitions, however, include some variation of a person’s name or initials IN COMBINATION WITH other pieces of information that can be used to identify the person, including social security numbers, driver’s license numbers and financial account numbers. The Breach Reporting ToolKit responds to any potential or actual PII data loss.
What if my business doesn’t record or maintain any PII data?
You might be recording or maintaining PII data without realizing it. For instance, the cardholder’s name is included in the magnetic stripe of some cards and is captured when the card is swiped at a point-of-sale terminal. As such, you may be collecting and storing information that constitutes PII through your POS terminal, even if customers are not expressly asked to provide it.
Do Credit-Reporting Agencies (CRAs) need to be informed of a breach involving PII?
The answer depends on the circumstances of the breach. There are provisions in most of the state security breach notification laws regarding reporting breaches to CRAs like Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. The Breach Reporting ToolKit determines if CRAs must be informed of a data breach and assists if necessary.
What if encrypted data is somehow exposed?
Virtually all jurisdictions have an exemption in place that does not require breach reporting and notification when the PII is encrypted or otherwise rendered secure. Encryption, in general, requires that PII be transformed into a form in which there is a low probability of assigning meaning to it without the use of a confidential process or key. Some states, however, require that PII be encrypted using specific technologies or processes, in order for this notification exemption to apply. It’s recommended that you contact the Breach Reporting ToolKit for more specific information on reporting requirements.
What if PII my business received from another organization is compromised?
If PII belonging to another organization is compromised while under your care, you may be required to notify the organization of the breach. Most state laws place the ultimate responsibility for notifying consumers of a breach on the owner or licensee of PII. However, others who receive or maintain this information are typically required to promptly or immediately notify the owner or licensee after discovering a breach of PII, so that the owner or licensee can take appropriate action. Cooperation with the data owner or licensee may require providing relevant details about the breach incident and any remedial measures being taken. Even where notice to the owner or licensee is not legally required, it may be appropriate, depending on the relationship.
Who is responsible for overseeing compliance of the various security breach laws?
As a general rule, the various state attorneys general and other state regulatory bodies are responsible for enforcing and overseeing compliance with state security breach notification laws. In some states, consumers who are harmed by a violation of the state’s notification law may bring a private lawsuit to enforce the law and recover damages for a violation. At the federal level, this responsibility is primarily vested in the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Board and, in the case of healthcare-related entities, the Department of Health and Human Services.
What is vulnerability scanning?
Vulnerability scanning is automated recurring network/workstation scanning that detects potential system entry points for card/cardholder data theft.
Who needs vulnerability scanning?
PCI-required scans may apply to all merchants and service providers with Internet-facing IP addresses. Even if your business does not offer Internet-based transactions, other services may make systems Internet accessible. Merchants with IP terminals, virtual terminals or POS systems require quarterly Vulnerability Scanning. Merchants who run only dial terminals, wireless terminals over a phone line or mobile-only processing do not require scanning.
What if I am using an IP-compatible terminal but not using IP at this time?
Scanning is required because we do not know if and when your business will start using the IP capability of the terminal.
Do mobile-only merchants require scanning?
Mobile only gateway merchants will not require scanning.
How often is vulnerability scanning performed?
Scanning is performed quarterly.
What is Breach Insurance?
Insurance plan of up to $100,000 of protection (per MID) to cover potential fines and fees in the event your business experiences a breach of card and/or cardholder data. Your business is covered once you complete your SAQ and achieve PCI compliance.
