Spigot, Inc. Takes Snacks To A Whole New Level

Here at Spigot, Inc. when we aren’t stuffing our faces with free lunch every Monday and Wednesday one has to wonder what we’re stuffing our faces with in the meantime. Our Kansas City Spigot, Inc. office is fully stocked with a plethora of snacks. There are almost too many to choose from. Among our favorite ones are Belvita bars, Cliff Bars, beef jerky sticks and bites, an assortment of dried fruits, real fruits, peanuts, assorted mini chocolates, and those cute little Haribo gummy bears are a huge smash. When it comes to beverages stocked in the office here at Kansas City Spigot, Inc. we are big on Coke Zero, La Croix, and big fans of San Pellegrino (so delicious). Requests for snacks are always being taken so it really makes it feel like home, stocked with your very favorite snacks.

Bay Cities Are Cutting Down on Free Meals, but not at Spigot, Inc. in Florida!

Love free food? So does Spigot, Inc.! If you follow our blog, that is obvious. Spigot, Inc. provides their employees with free lunches every Monday and Wednesday, free snacks all day, free La Croix and soda and even surprises us with breakfast sometimes, but that’s not the case for bigger companies in California anymore. According to an article in Business Insider, “San Francisco Bay Area cities are cracking down on free food at Facebook and Other Tech companies. Unfortunately the city prohibits companies from fully subsidizing meals in the Village, and the rule could spread to other Bay Area cities in the future.” This is just another reason why a job opportunity at Spigot, Inc. and a move to Sunny Southwest Florida could be a game changer. There is so much that Florida has to offer; no state tax, uncrowded roads, beautiful beaches, warm weather year round, cheap real estate and of course palm trees!

If you love free food, sandy beaches, warm weather and think that relocating to Florida could be an option for you, Spigot Inc. would love to speak with you! Send your resume and cover letter to careers@spigot.com for review!

Spigot, Inc. KC Is Crazy About Cold Brew

The beverage of choice for most early morning Americans is coffee. With a wide array of options to choose from, cold brew has instantly gained popularity within the walls of Spigot, Inc. in the Kansas City office. Served ice cold and fresh daily to all employees, it’s the best pick-me-up before anyone’s busy day. Here at KC Spigot, Inc. we are all really fueled on this liquid gold. I know what you’re thinking…isn’t cold brew just a fancy word for iced coffee, well that’s what I thought too, however, the two couldn’t be more different. Cold brew is made with cold water, is less acidic, less bitter (more delicious) and typically more expensive than your average cup of iced coffee. However, if the idea of cold coffee in the morning is not your cup of tea (pun intended) our Spigot, Inc. office building is fully stocked with a delicious house blend courtesy of The Roasterie as well as a plethora of herbal and green teas to choose from. If any Spigot, Inc. employee needs a caffeine fix for a case of the 3 p.m.’s there is always an endless amount of options. 

If Spigot, Inc. sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee) we would like to speak with you. Send your resume and cover letter to careers@spigot.com for review!

Oh Boy! Spigot, Inc. Employees Throw a Baby Shower

Team Building, Office Friendships and Collaboration are a big part of Spigot, Inc.’s culture and today we threw one of our employees. Lauretta Ostertag,  a surprise baby shower for her new baby boy in the conference room. A handful of employees starting planning last week, set up a fake meeting for Lauretta to distract her and decorated the conference room with Oh Boy! Decorations, cupcakes, cookie cakes, a banner and of course tons of presents! After her “meeting” was over she was escorted into our main conference room to see something cool and we were all there! She got to open all her presents and enjoy some sweet treats with other Spigot, Inc. employees and it was a great time for all! Here at Spigot, Inc. it is extremely important to everyone to keep our company culture collaborative in every way.

A New Employee’s First Week At Spigot, Inc.

Most people know the stress and pressure of searching and trying to find a new job; sprucing/sending out resumes, cover letters, recommendation letters and doing anything  possible to appeal to a potential new employer. Spigot, Inc. made the whole process of easing into a new position (in a new city) not only less stressful, but actually enjoyable. I have never felt more welcomed by a community of individuals. Not only was I showered with gifts from Spigot, Inc. but I was also showed so much love from the building company Wework. Not only did Spigot, Inc. supply me with my own personal company wide Dell laptop, my gift basket included an awesome Spigot, Inc. branded koozie, water bottle, and a comfortable t-shirt. An endless amount of perks like the coffee bar provided to all Spigot, Inc. employees as well as other business tenets that Corrigan Station houses, a beautiful rooftop view of the Kansas City sky line, beautifully decorated rooms and paintings that make you feel at home in the work environment. In my past experience, majority of people cannot wait for 5 o’clock to roll around so they can leave, but here at Spigot, Inc. it is just the opposite. It really has become a home away from home and you really get that feeling from the amazing atmosphere and people.

Spigot, Inc. KC Topgolf Team Building

Team building is a huge part of Spigot, Inc.’s culture, and one of our biggest perks is the opportunity to participate in really cool events with each other. Spigot, Inc.’s Kansas City Office had a visitor in town from our Fort Myers location –  and two new employees start this week, so a team building event was a great way to welcome them to the team (and a great excuse to have some fun)!  Yesterday, Spigot, Inc.  got to leave work at 2 (Yes – half day!) and head to Topgolf, but we didn’t have any ordinary mode of transportation – we got to ride in a party bus! The party bus was so much fun, we had an awesome playlist and a ton of laughs.

After our competitive game of Topgolf, Spigot, Inc. employees headed over to County Road Ice House to grab some drinks and have dinner. The BBQ at dinner was delicious and we all had an amazing time getting to know the new employees and mingling with one another.

Breakfast Perks at Spigot, Inc.

What’s the most important meal of the day you ask? Breakfast! Plain and simple. Some say espresso and ice cream don’t go together but that is not the case here at our Spigot, Inc., Kansas City office. A lovely, delicious spread was provided to the WeWork Corrigan building by Concierge Errands & More and Spigot, Inc. got to participate! This mouth watering breakfast spread included an egg and potato frittata that was baked to perfection. It also included avocado toast for all you millennials out there which was perfectly savory and the perfect start to any day. Fresh strawberries paired with white custard cream that danced harmoniously with your taste buds. However our personal favorite was the ice cream drizzled over with espresso on top to kick start our day. The only thing better than breakfast? Free breakfast! Our free breakfast was also a great opportunity to prepare for our day with other Spigot, Inc., Concierge Errands & More and WeWork employees and chat and enjoy each other’s company.
