General Manager Joel Avery on showing employees they are valued

"Each employee receives an anniversary bonus after five years and every year after that [correlated] to the number of years employed — for example, five years is $500, six years is $600. All 10-year employees and a guest go on an all-expenses-paid trip to Key West with the owners. Best benefits package, and we still offer a yearly 401(k) match. Season tickets to major sporting events distributed on a game-by-game basis to the employees. Annual spring and fall barbecues."

Avery on keeping employees engaged

"Nicest facilities with all recently updated equipment and infrastructure, and industry-leading pay for all positions."

Avery on a successful healthy living program

"Fresh Fruit Fridays and discounted gym membership to a local athletic club."
