For Immediate Release

August 27, 2013 – Mayor of North Las Vegas, Nevada, John Lee, joined Peter Mouskondis, President and
CEO of Nicholas and Company, and others today to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new Nicholas
and Company Food Service Distribution Center.

The groundbreaking took place in North Las Vegas on the grounds of the new facility off of I-15 on 5670
Linn Lane.

“I am thrilled to see Nicholas and Company choose North Las Vegas for its new food service distribution
center,” Mayor Lee said. “They will be providing 95 jobs for our families, and I look forward to working
with them to become a larger part of our community.”

Nicholas and Company is now the largest independent broad-line distributor in the Intermountain West,
with a distribution center based out of Salt Lake City, serving Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, south-west
of Montana, eastern Oregon and northern Arizona.

Peter Mouskondis shared, “Growing up, it was great to see Las Vegas evolve. Traveling to Las Vegas was
something that we always loved as a family and thought that it would be a thriving community for us to
serve and continue to grow as a company. It was always in our plans to someday come into the Las
Vegas market and possibly build-today is that monumental day.”

The distribution center is expected to be finished by May 2014 and operational soon after.
