By Denise Greer

White ChristmasTake time this holiday season to thank your employees for their hard work and dedication to your pizzeria and its success. While you show show your appreciate all year long, the holidays is a perfect time to go that extra mile to thank employees.

Klavon’s Pizzeria and Pub in Jackson, Michigan, gave 100 percent of its sales on December 10 to its nearly 50 employees. Holiday bonuses amounted to more $300 for each employee. The pizzeria promoted the day on social media with an invite to all of its Facebook followers:

Employees at Klavon’s work hard throughout the year to make sure every guest has the best food and experience at Klavon’s. We’d like to say THANK YOU by giving 100% of the entire day’s sales on Tuesday, December 10th back to our employees. Thank you K-Crew!

Today is the day we say THANK YOU to the K-Crew. 100% of sales today will be given back to the employees!

Stop by and help us show the crew thanks!
