Since we’re halfway through Employee Ownership Month, we thought we’d highlight a few more celebrations members have shared with us. Today, The Saxton Group in Dallas, TX and Big G Express in Shelbyville, TN.
From an email from Adam Saxton: “The Saxton Group is a restaurant franchisee with 54 McAlister’s Deli locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas. We are a 100% ESOP formed in December 2012 and to our knowledge are the largest 100% Employee Owned company in the restaurant industry.
In order to celebrate our first Employee Ownership Month as an ESOP, we have created a month long event that gives something to our employee owners while also giving back to the community. We believe the spirit of giving and community involvement is a critical part of ESOP culture and are proud to have created an event that allows our employees to give back.
In summary, our current restaurant uniform is khaki pants for our employee owner team members. However, we have long had the request from our employees to be able to wear jeans to work. This October, we are allowing our employees to wear jeans to work to celebrate Employee Ownership Month but are also hosting a drive to collect over 100 pairs of Khaki pants in each location to donate to the Salvation Army.”
Take a look at the Khaki Pant Drive – Release and the poster below.
Second, we came across this video from Big G Express and shall we say… an ESOP Truck Dynasty!
Stay tuned for more Employee Ownership Month celebration coverage tomorrow.
