It’s beginning to look a lot like the holiday season here at Holmes Stamp & Sign! Even if it may not look like it outside, we’re beginning to feel the effects of Jack Frost and Old Man Winter here in North Florida despite the fact that some of our northern neighbors are already finding themselves, not to mention their vehicles, fully submerged in icy snow. And while we may not be able to see any snow on the ground, there are other ways for us to tell just what time of the year it is. Our production floor is jam packed with brand new products being made, our shipping offices are overflowing with packages to be sent out, and there is more than just one new face wandering our halls helping us out during our annual holiday rush!
This year our very own CEO Bryan Croft decided to do something extra special for all of his employees. On the morning of the start of our busiest month of the year, he decided to wake up early, grab his daughter, pack up the car, and beat everyone else to work. As we all began to trickle in through the doors bundled up in our coats and scarves, we immediately noticed something was different in our warehouses. Curious, we followed the sounds and smells coming from the break room and discovered the both Bryan and his daughter, serving up a massive breakfast spread intended for everyone in the company to enjoy! Wasting no time, we dug in and got to work for the day! When all was said and done, our team of 68 employees had devoured 156 fresh pancakes, 5 gallons of orange juice, 4 lbs. of bacon, 3 lbs. of sausage, two boxes of Dunkin Donuts coffee, and more maple syrup than we knew what to do with! Was this a bit unexpected? Absolutely. Was this an unpleasant experience? Never! The super special breakfast gift from our caring and considerate CEO was just the thing we needed to get us in the holiday spirit!
We couldn’t have been any more surprised or thankful when we walked in and saw all of the food ready and waiting for us! With the holiday season comes, longer hours, tighter deadlines, and lots of coffee runs! That’s why mornings such as these are just one of the many examples that makes working at Holmes Stamp & Sign so great! We’re proud to consider ourselves one big happy stamping family – especially during this time of the year where things can get particularly hectic!
