Spigot, Inc. Virtual Trivia Happy Hour = Big Success

Update: Week 6 on lock down – Spigot, Inc. is still working from home! If you follow our blog, you know that we frequently have parties, hang out with one another outside of the office, travel together and participate in team building events. We’ve decided to keep that going, but virtually! So last week – Spigot, Inc. put together a Spigot, Inc. Virtual Happy Hour for all employees to attend! We had a total of around 30 employees and 5 teams participate in the event. It was hosted through Zoom by Trivia Mafia – and was a BLAST! Not only was it fun to see one another in a group setting again, we got to compete – and there were even prizes at stake!

Trivia Mafia did a great job organizing the game. They helped us set up teams by using a Zoom registration. Once the teams were set up, we were all sent a Google forms document to fill in our answers. The host of the show read all 5 questions for the round, and then sent us off into Zoom “break-out” rooms to discuss our answers. We were given 5 minutes to submit our answers and then the host pulled us all back into the same room to let us trash talk (lol) – and read us the next set of questions.

The game was VERY close, and the questions were challenging – but fun! We will definitely be doing this again, and participating in their private online hosted events!

Spigot, Inc. really loves investing in their people – and creating a team and “fun” environment is one way we accomplish that. As we are in quarantine, we are continually looking for ways to promote comradery. This definitely won’t be our last “virtual” team event! Stay tuned to see what other fun things we’re up to!

Spigot, Inc. is also STILL hiring! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog. Be sure to follow us on LinkedInTwitter and Instagram… like us on Facebook and never miss out on the Spigot, Inc. lifestyle!

Spigot, Inc. Promotes Team Building – Even in Quarantine!

Prior to “social distancing” and “stay at home” orders – Spigot, Inc. had a lot of team building events! Most recently, we went to Dave n Busters as an entire company, we frequently spend a lot of time at WOB in Gulf Coast and have parties in our office. The Spigot, Inc. office has been closed now for 29 days, so what are we doing to stay connected?! Zoom Happy Hours & Games (obviously). Individual teams have been planning happy hours every week, just to catch up – talk quarantine, and just hang out. Friday, all of Spigot, Inc.’s employees got an invite to hop on a call at 2pm and a handful of people showed up! This coming Friday, Triva Mafia is hosting a Zoom Trivia contest for Spigot, Inc., and Spigot is providing prizes!

Last week, Spigot, Inc.’s sister company, Eightpoint Technologies, hosted a “Rock n Roll Bingo” Happy hour – and even had lunches delivered to everyone’s homes from a local Cayman Restaurant, Al la Kebab.

It’s really great to be a part of a “family” of companies that value employee happiness and promote collaboration no matter what. Not only do we offer a ton of fun outside of the workday, we also offer amazing benefits (100$ Medical, Dental & Vision Insurance paid, 401k Match, Unlimited Vacation Days & FREE LUNCH & Snacks).

Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Goes to Romania: An Employee’s Story

As most of you probably already know – Spigot, Inc. is across the globe. We are owned by a company based out of Beijing, China, have several offices in the US and another office in Bucharest, Romania. Many Spigot, Inc. employees are fortunate enough to be able to travel to these locations for work purposes (and even extend their trips to see other parts of the world!). This past week our Mobile Team made the long 20 hour journey to work on their product with the Spigot, Inc. Romanian team. Spigot, Inc.’s, Elina Terentevya, documented the whole trip and gave us the run down below!

Elina:

I was fortunate enough to be one of the members of the mobile team to take a trip to Bucharest, Romania to work with our IOS team. While Spigot makes sure our communication is possible through all the technology provided, there is nothing better than meeting and working side by side. After a few take offs and landings, many movies on the plane, lots of laughs, and many many snacks, we were finally there!

 

As we landed we decided to go straight to the office to get started. The Ro team greeted us with open arms and most importantly donuts. I have tasted a lot of donuts in my life, but nothing compared to these. Papanasi, as they are called in Romania, were perfect round spheres, and

exactly what we needed for a quick pick me up before diving right in to work with the team. A perfect Romanian welcome in my opinion.

The evening followed by a team dinner at Grand Café Van Gogh. The café was so unique, with Van Gogh replicas hanging all across the wall painted by local artists, funky umbrellas hanging from the ceiling, and nachos that were out of this world.

I honestly don’t even know where to begin about the food. It never stopped, and each place was better than the last. The bread, the wine, the humus, the baba ganoush, the kabobs, the shawarmas, all the meats, and my personal favorite mamaliga. Everything tasted even better than it looked, if that’s even possible!

Another night we went to a traditional Romanian restaurant, called Hanu’ lui Manuc, we ate, we drank, and we fully embraced the Romanian culture. 2 meters of beer, authentic Romanian food, endless donuts, Moldavian dancers, the Eastern European culture is just something else.

We were also lucky enough, some may not agree with me, to see a fresh snow fall. The snow just kept falling transforming this unique city of Bucharest in to a winter wonderland. Snow balls were made and exchanged. 

Working at Spigot, Inc. gives employees an amazing opportunity to experience different cultures, whether it’s in our own office or travelling abroad.

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!

Spigot, Inc. Has Breakfast for Lunch from Three Little Birds Food Truck!

Free lunch, a food truck AND a gourmet breakfast?! Looks like we’re is having a great start to the week (No Monday blues here)! Today Three Little Birds Food Truck pulled up outside the Spigot, Inc. office around 11:30 and set up. Considering this is definitely a crowd favorite for Spigot, Inc., everyone ran downstairs at once  – and ended up forming a 30 minute line! Three Little birds prepares the best, fancy (and obviously delicious) breakfast foods. It’s been a long time since we’ve had them, so everyone was excited – so excited that they ran out of the Ranchero Dish!

Three Little birds offers a variety of breakfast foods – from breakfast burritos/biscuits & gravy for those who like to indulge and vegetarian options/fruit parfaits for those trying to keep their New Years resolutions! 

Overall, our visit from Three Little Birds made everyone at Spigot, Inc.’s day even better! Food trucks are a fun way for everyone to get out of the office and hang out and socialize (and even wear matching Spigot, Inc. shirts) while they wait for their food! Spigot, Inc. loves their catered lunches every Monday & Wednesday –  we are treated with food from all over Fort Myers and a chance to all eat lunch together!

2020 – New Year, New Things to Do Around Here!

Spigot, Inc. is located on the beautiful coast of South West FL, just 15 miles away from Naples, Sanibel/Captiva Islands and 40 miles from Marco Island.  We are super thankful to live in such a cool location (And SUCH warm weather!). Most people (Including Spigot, Inc.) have New Years resolutions to live a healthier lifestyle, cut out bad foods and alcohol, etc. – so why not find new fun things to do in the area?! Of course Spigot, Inc. has researched the best things to do – and we’re here to share it with you!

  1. Mysterious domed structures on the southern tip of Marco Island (This one DOES require a boat, but no worries – all the islands are crawling with boat rental places!)
  2. Tin City! Tin City offers you the chance to step back in time to an era when rustic, maritime character and charm were at the heart of Naples’ fishing industry; as well as eateries serving fresh seafood!
  3. Naples Winter Wine Festival (Okay, you’re allowed a cheat day). Located at the Ritz Carlton Naples – the event brings together renowned vintners, chefs and Master Sommeliers with wine enthusiasts and philanthropists for a three-day festival themed “All We Need is Love” in order to raise millions of dollars for underprivileged and at-risk children.
  4. Barefoot Beach Preserve – One of the region’s last undeveloped barrier islands, it feature vast tracks of natural land that are perfect for idyllic walks. Families are drawn here, too, by the gentle, shallow waters, helping make it a regular fixture on lists of America’s best beaches.

Need More Ideas?! Check out this page on Tripadvisor for some more cool things to do!

Successful (Maybe the Best One Yet) Spigot, Inc. Holiday Party!

Almost every Spigot, Inc. employee in attendance, giant light-up robots, fog machines, AMAZING Service at Cavo Lounge, a photobooth, delicious food (and even macaroons!) made for an unforgettable Spigot, Inc. Holiday Party! It’s a challenge to get everyone from Spigot, Inc. in the same place at the same time, ESPECIALLY with their significant others – so once a year we have a huge blow-out where Spigot, Inc. employees can bring a guest to, and eat and drink on us. This year’s party was a HUGE success, almost 120 people attended Cavo Lounge in Naples around 7pm. Everyone was greeted with amazing service, cocktails and horderves following quickly. Cavo sectioned off the VIP area so we had somewhere for our bottles, food and (Of Course) dancing. Cavo lit champagne bottles on fire and Spigot, Inc. employees had funny costumes. 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. truly appreciates their employees and is a strong advocate for employee happiness. We try everything we can to make sure our employees know one another, enjoy each other’s company and know they are appreciated.

Spigot, Inc. judges FGCU Entrepreneurial Contest

Three Spigot, Inc. employees got the awesome opportunity yesterday to judge the FGCU Entrepreneurial contest in the Emergent Technology Institute Building. FGCU has an amazing program for young adults with a passion and drive to be an Entrepreneur called, The Runway Program. According to their website, The FGCU Runway Program is a free business incubator open to students and alumni that are accepted into the program. Currently located off campus at the FGCU Emergent Technologies Institute Building, participants have access to two 1,300 ft2 shared work spaces, computers, cameras, audio equipment, design and development software, and regular mentoring fromt heir expert faculty, staff, and community startup coaches.

Participants are required to regularly meet with assigned Runway Program Advisers to receive feedback on ideas and progress, in addition to setting goals towards launching their venture. The Runway Program follows the Lean Start-Up methodology. Participants identify and validate the existence of a problem or opportunity, and then develop solutions and a plan that they can test on real people. At the end of the 16-week program, student participants have the opportunity to pitch for equity-free seed funding to launch their businesses. 

The program has come to an end and all the students got put in different rooms for a “Shark Tank” style presentation. Spigot, Inc.’s Connor Grevel, Ben Tucker and Sean Henry sat in the judges seat and saw all kinds of creative business ideas. From Bio-degradable sunscreen, YouTube Channels, Positive rap artists, and online organizing tools to name a few. It was a great experience for our Spigot, Inc. employees and the students, especially students with advertising campaigns. Spigot, Inc. was able to not only understand their product, but give them a few pointers on how to better run traffic for their business.

Our involvement with FGCU, specifically the Entrepreneurial college has been extremely beneficial for both our business and their students. 1/4 of Spigot, Inc. employees are FGCU Alumni and we are looking forward to judging more contests and continuing to hire students!

All-Time High Celebrations, Jet Ski Races, and a Beautiful Sunset Dinner? The Perfect Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Outing!


Spigot, Inc. loves celebrating wins – and last week our Mobile Team hit an all-time high AND they had visitors in town from both Grand Cayman and Romania (Yes, we have an office in Romania!) – so this was a perfect time for a team outing.

The team busted out of the office early and took advantage of the beautiful Fort Myers beach, so their out of country guests could experience a true Florida experience. Jet ski races in front of the Lani Kai kicked off a really fun day – followed by an awesome dinner at Shuckers right on the beach (Feet in the sand!). The team was able to truly connect with one another, share stories, laugh, drink and (most importantly) eat lots of delicious seafood! The night ended with an iconic Southwest FL sunset. Everyone agreed, this was one of the best team outings yet!
