Spigot, Inc. Goes to Headpinz!

What a better way to start the week than with a happy hour on a Monday?! Spigot, Inc. left work and headed over to Headpinz for happy hour and some bowling! We rented out the entire VIP area, got a bunch of apps (a ton of chicken wings) and drinks and bowled for two hours. Of course, in Spigot, Inc. fashion, the game got super competitive and everyone bowled until the time was up.  After bowling – a few Spigot, Inc. employees played a game of lasertag and had a blast!

Spigot, Inc. Surprises Employees with New Swag!

This morning Spigot, Inc. employees got to work with a surprise on their desk, all new Spigot swag! We remodeled the office at the beginning of the year and completely redid our logo, so it was time for a reboot in swag! Prior to this; Spigot, Inc. only had Koozie cups, ping pong balls, shirts (with our old logo) and cell phone wallets – so we upgraded! A large amount of Spigot, Inc. employees travel for work – so the backpacks were a great addition AND they came packed with Spigot, Inc. water bottles and updated T-Shirts! Not only do Spigot, Inc. employees get fun swag, but we are in the process of ordering more for the upcoming FGCU career fair we will be attending.

Spigot, Inc. really cares about their employees and showing up to work on a Friday with gifts on their desks is just one of the ways Spigot, Inc. shows their appreciation! If you are looking to launch a new career and you think this could be an opportunity for you – we’d love to hear from you!
