BUSINESS ETHICS AWARD TO PETER MUTH

Peter Muth, founder of ORCO Block Company, was honored May 14 at the Marywood Conference on Business Ethics. Peter Muth, along with Carl Karcher, founder of Carl’s Jr. restaurants, received the inaugural Bishop Todd D. Brown Award for Exemplary Business Integrity.

Peter Muth is widely known as a fair competitor, caring employer and donor to many community causes. Pete is proof that an ethical businessperson can be very successful. He has believed in providing good products at a fair price with exceptional customer service. He believed in family and hard work. He has never hesitated to shake a staff’s greasy hand and ask how the wife and kids are doing. Many staff have worked 20+ years because they like working for ORCO and the Muth family.

Competitors who were planning to retire or sell their businesses often gave Peter the first opportunity to buy them out. They respected Peter’s integrity and knew that he would continue to grow the business and treat their staff well.

When the Boys & Girls Club of Stanton needed bigger and better facilities Peter and another entrepreneur Bob Pralle spent two years personally knocking on every business door in Stanton and the local area to ask for pledges or in-kind donations. ORCO donated all the block. The beautiful, new club center was dedicated in 1982. Stanton today still has one of the lowest family incomes of Orange County. But the juvenile crime rate went from being one of the worst to one of the best in the county, due in no small part to the Boys & Girls Club being able to reach more youth at the new club center.
