ALISO VIEJO, Calif., April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnny Rockets partners
with DAR PRO Solutions to recycle its restaurants' used fry oil into renewable
diesel fuel.

Each year, Johnny Rockets serves about eight million pounds of American Fries
and two million orders of Onion Rings, all of which use fry oil. Through DAR
PRO Solution's green program, Johnny Rockets' 29 corporate-owned restaurants
recycle nearly 7,200 pounds of Used Cooking Oil per year, per restaurant. The
collection and recycling of Waste Oil not only saves and produces energy, it
also keeps the used product out of waterways and addresses the growing demand
for renewable energy sources.

"Johnny Rockets continually strives for ways to make our restaurants more
eco-friendly and leave a lighter footprint on our environment," states John
Fuller, President and CEO. "As an all-American restaurant chain, we are proud
to do our part to be socially responsible and our partnership with DAR PRO
Solutions is a great way to give back to our communities and environment."

DAR PRO Solutions offers environmentally-safe methods for disposal and
sustainable use of fry oil for national restaurant chains, grocery retailers
and other food service businesses. The company converts animal fats and
recycled greases, as well as plant oils such as soybean oil into its exclusive
biodiesel fuel, called Bio G-3000™ Premium Biodiesel fuel. Bio G-3000™ can be
used in place of diesel fuel without engine modification or performance
reduction and is the fastest growing domestically produced alternative fuel.

"Renewable energy, or biofuels, is only one way that we contribute to greening
of America, but in the recent past it has become the most talked about use for
our recycled grease," Bill Morris, Sales Manager Chain Accounts for DAR PRO,
states. "Our partnership with Johnny Rockets is a testament to the fact that
foodservice organizations are working towards sustainability goals and are
adding value to the idea of a sustainable business."

DAR PRO recently partnered with Valero Energy Corporation in a joint venture
to build a Green Diesel plant, which is designed to produce 9,300 barrels of
renewable diesel per day. The Plant will make use of the Norco LA Refinery's
pipelines and 7000 domestic stores to make Diamond Green Diesel available
nationwide. The Diamond Green Diesel facility will convert as much as eleven
percent of the U.S.' animal fat and used cooking oil into renewable diesel.
