DeMesa on rewarding employees and showing them they are valued:
"I show my team that I value them by constantly rewarding hard work. We offer jean day and pizza lunch on Friday. We also grill steaks once a month for our team and customers."
DeMesa on making work schedules more balanced or flexible:
"Our store has consecutive days off. I make sure everyone gets the days off they want. I also alternate weekends for those who require special days off due to family matters."
