Spigot, Inc. Takes Dave & Busters By Storm

Spigot, Inc. employees never pass up an opportunity to have a good time, and last night we all left work around 3:3o and headed over to the new Dave & Busters in Fort Myers. Dave & Busters didn’t even know what they were in for. This was definitely one of the most successful happy hours we’ve had yet! Almost every single Spigot, Inc. employee came to play. Spigot, Inc. got everyone 20$ play cards and got to enjoy tons of apps and drinks on us! Of course – most employees won a ton of prizes and Shakti EVEN hit the jackpot. 

The Spigot, Inc. office is has grown rapidly over the past two years. We now have 70 employees sitting in the Fort Myers office, and there are days that go by where employees don’t even see one another due to our huge space. Happy hours like this are a great way to get everyone out of the office and mingling with employees from other teams that they don’t normally interact with on a daily basis. Spigot, Inc. also REALLY values employee happiness and this is another great way to show our appreciation to our employees and just give everyone a break from the work day to hang out.

Spigot, Inc. Tests Out the New Fort Myers Restaurant the Slurping Dragon

Today, a group of Spigot, Inc. girls tested out the new restaurant,The Slurping Dragon, in Fort Myers. Slurping Dragon is a new Ramen/Poke restaurant, and at first we were all a little apprehensive but it did NOT disappoint! Not only do they have awesome ramen soup bowls, they have a “build your own” poke bowl station and a ton of wok bowls. Everyone tried out different things – and you can just tell by the pictures, it was all delicious!

After we ate, we got the opportunity to talk to the owner and found out that he used to cater for us when he owned a different restaurant! It was great catching up with him, AND now have a new restaurant to cater Spigot, Inc.’s free lunch! The owner even told us he would hand deliver the meals himself. 

Overall – the Spigot, Inc. consensus is, we love the Slurping Dragon, will definitely be back AND recommend anyone reading this should try it out! Check out their menu!

A Look into Spigot, Inc. Company Culture

“Train employees so they can leave, Treat them well enough so they don’t want t0.” – an awesome quote by Richard Branson. Spigot, Inc. has many things to offer, but our BIGGEST asset is our employees, and we believe this quote sums up our company culture extremely well. Not only does Spigot, Inc. “train” their employees – but they give everyone a huge opportunity to learn and to grow within the organization. We have very minimal process, so employees are granted the freedom, not only to express their ideas, but actually put them into action. Spigot, Inc. employees are also given the opportunity to fail. We know “failure” in the work place isn’t something most people are used to being accepted, but Spigot, Inc. knows – that is the only way to grow. Everyone gets the chance to take risks, fail, learn from their mistakes and come up with a better “game-plan” or solution next time. Just this concept alone breeds employee happiness. Employees getting the opportunity to also acheive big wins and successes (along with failure) give them the confidence to make business decisions and earn respect from peers and executives in the organization.

On top of this, we all structure the teams by business unit instead of by position or department. We have Media Buyers, Business Analysts and Developers/Engineers on every team (or in every business) and they all work collaboratively on their specific product. This way – every individual is actually contributing to the bottom line of our business.

Spigot, Inc. has a ton of perks on a professional level – we invest in our employees and make sure they are on the path to growth. On top of all of this, Spigot, Inc. also provides perks to take the “leg-work” out of everyday tasks. We stock our office with a ton of snacks (on request by employees), beer, fancy coffee, cold brew coffee on tap, bagels for breakfast, an entire fridge full of soft-drinks and (OBVIOUSLY) La Croix. We offer free lunch twice a week (with left-overs for the rest of the week), team-building trips, pop-up parties and beer-pong on Friday afternoons. The office is also fully stocked with games; Huge flat screens with Nintendo Switch & Xbox, Darts, Foos Ball, Ping Pong, Connect Four, Hungry Hungry Hippos (lol) and Spigot branded corn hole. We believe that breaks are necessary (and we’re all super competitive) so we’re encouraged to take breaks and play games. We are offered a flexible work schedule, no one has specific times they need to come in the office or leave, getting our work done – and doing it well is top priority, not how long employees sit in their seats.

We also work heavily with FGCU to hire talented interns and turn them into successful employees. Most of our interns have gotten full-time positions here and have grown in their career.

Spigot, Inc. company culture makes employees WANT to come to work everyday. We have an extremely low “turn-over” rate and a large handful of employees who have made it over 10 years. Spigot, Inc. is truly a family – we all hang out inside and outside of work and relocating is easy, because it’s a great place to make friends!

Spigot, Inc. Travels to China for 5th Annual Genimous Party!

For those of you just tuning into the Spigot, Inc. blog – Spigot, Inc. is owned by a parent company in Beijing, China called Genimous Technologies. Every year a group from Spigot, Inc. (and our sister companies) are invited to make the long (and totally worth it) haul out to China and attend the party. The beginning of the party consists of a huge stage with a ton of live entertainment, recognition for outstanding players and just overall fun. 

The party takes place in Genimous headquarters. Visiting the HQ is definitely a unique experience! It is set in 400-year-old Palace that was built for the 24th son of the Emperor Kangxi, who is considered by historians to be one of the greatest emperors in the history of China.  The HQ palace consists of 5 courtyards surrounded by buildings – which have now been converted into offices, conference rooms and banquet halls. It is currently home to over 300 of our 900 employees. It has a fully operating restaurant and hotel onsite with 8 rooms (which guests are invited to stay in!) and they are all crammed with Ming and Qing dynasty furniture to keep with the traditional theme. Genimous took over the palace from the former China Club Beijing.

Not only do Spigot, Inc. employees get the opportunity to celebrate with every year with Genimous – it gives them an opportunity to go over yearly goals, improvements and structure for the upcoming year.

We have a great relationship with our parent company, and really appreciate the opportunities we get to travel and see other parts of the world! If you want to be a part of a global company that promotes team-work and travel – Spigot, Inc. would LOVE to speak with you!

The party was only supposed to last until 10pm, but in true Spigot, Inc. fashion – we all stayed much later! Several Spigot, Inc. employees made a vacation out of it and stayed at the Inn at Pelican Bay in Naples for the night!

The Spigot, Inc. holiday party was an amazing way to kick off the holiday season and the new year! It was extremely fun to get to know new employees better; as well as spend time with employees significant others and friends in their lives.

Spigot, Inc.’s Ben Tucker Inspires Entrepreneurial Students at FGCU Campus

A few weeks ago one of  FGCU’s  Entrepreneurial class came for a tour of Spigot, Inc. and got the opportunity to listen to Ben Tucker, Elina Terenteyva and Shayna Paolucci speak about our company culture, the reasons we’re successful as a company (and individuals) and what it took for us to get here. The students and professor loved it so much that they asked Ben to come to one of the Senior Level classes and speak to students graduating about Spigot, Inc. and advice on how to have a successful future.

He spoke a lot about the “Spigot, Inc. Mentality” and just having the right mentality in general. He talked about the way he thinks about things as a manager, and how it’s not about age or experience – but who’s best for the job. He honed in on not settling or punching a time clock everyday to just have a job.  He explained how the generation we are in; employers like young leaders and that we’re in a generation that doesn’t discriminate. He told the students that he likes when his employees are better than him and he can learn from them, because it makes him a better leader.  Ben stressed that even when people doubt you (which many doubted him) to still follow your gut, because you know what’s best for yourself when others around you don’t always. He told them if you are passionate about something, listen to what people have to say – but trusting yourself is a huge key to success. He spoke about finding a company that will invest in your leadership growth and as you go through your career, finding a company that invests in you and helps you grow.

He opened up about his failures that led to his success and spoke about how failure is okay and part of growing. He explained to them that even most of the leaders in our company have lost large amounts of money for the company taking risks and it’s okay. When mistakes happen, we take our people aside and we say “let’s think about what we can do better next time.”

Overall our visit to FGCU was extremely successful. Ben stressed to the students that our company IS epic, but he isn’t trying to sell the company – he is trying to sell the dream of “don’t sell yourself short.”

Spigot, Inc. loves their relationship with FGCU and the opportunity they give our leaders to inspire their students.  1/4 of our employees graduated from there and we will continue to hire! If you want to be a part of an awesome company with an great mindset, we would love to speak with you!
