Happy Birthday to You !
Happy Birthday to You !
I want to make everyone aware of something really sad that happened to one of our team members last week. The
young lady was arrested and charged, according to the New Orleans news sources, with 29 counts of wire fraud. She, along
with some other folks, was part of a conspiracy to scan credit cards with a small machine that copied the information off of a
credit card. Customers who found their cards being charged without their knowledge complained to their banks. The banks in
turn complained to the Secret Service and FBI who started an investigation. Once the investigation led back to one of our
restaurants, we were notified and we cooperated with the authorities while enough evidence was gathered for the police to
make an arrest.
Wire fraud is a Federal offence and involves several Federal agencies. Federal crimes have no time off for good
behavior. Whatever you are sentenced to, you serve; 29 counts could mean that the young lady in question might be a much
older lady when she finishes her sentence, if convicted.
When a customer presents a credit card for payment, we should immediately make the charge and return the card.
There is never an excuse to walk off with a customer’s credit card. If you see anyone handling a credit card…other than
immediately swiping it and handing it back, please contact your RGM.
The video cameras in our restaurants are running all the time…they are very useful to the police when gathering
evidence for a crime. We should all be aware that the Federal Government is aggressively attacking credit card crimes. Credit
card theftis not a slap on the wrist anymore, people are going to jail.
Please don’t let anyone talk you into helping them steal from our customers. The employees in our restaurants will be
the ones on the video. Don’t listen to anyone who might try and convince you that only the banks will lose with credit card
fraud. The truth is that the authorities realize how massive credit card crime has become, and they are using all their resources
to stop it.
I know that the vast majority of our team members want to work in a crime free restaurant. We all need to remain
alert when we see something that does not look right and report it to your RGM, AC, or call the office and ask for Human

Profile of a Champion
Khadija Williams is a newly promoted shift leader in Houma at the KT. Khadija moved to
Houma from Texas about a year ago and started working as a part time cashier during her junior year
of high school. Khadija impressed management so much as a new team member, it was very clear
that she would be a great candidate for management. The problem was that she was only 17 and
could not be promoted until she became 18. Khadija was approached about getting into management
and started training so that when she reached 18, she would be ready for the promotion. She did her
Learning Zone and took every opportunity possible to learn as much as she could. Khadija is a senior
at HLB High School and is in the work/study program. She is interested in management and once she
graduates from high school she wants to continue her education and get a business degree.
Khadija loves working with the team and loves the fast pace of working in the fast food industry.
Being in management gives her valuable experience that helps her understand and relate to her
business classes at school. Khadija has such great passion to serve the guest and is a great example to
others that may be interested in moving up into management Khadija has great potential in this
company and the sky is the limit for her.
When Khadija is not working, she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend and hanging out with
friends. B & G is happy to have you on our TEAM !!!
