Just wanted to give you all a brief update on one of my projects that was just completed!
As you may or may not know, Tuesday July 9th was Cow Appreciation Day. Now, what does that mean? Well, every year around the midpoint of summer, Chick-fil-A offers free entrees to those who come to the restaurant dressed like a cow. This day is easily one of the busiest times of year for Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country. Many of the full-time staff members at the corporate office go out into the field to serve in the restaurants that day as many of the stores are working above their normal volume.
However, some staff members stick behind during that day. So, to continue the celebration back at the Support Center, I was tasked with planning the events that day. At the beginning of the summer, I was given a set budget and was told to run with it. Here are some of the things I planned:
July 8th: Pre-Hype Day
-Gave away four sets of tickets to Atlanta Braves and Atlanta United games. During lunch, those who found plush cows taped under their chairs were winners!
-Had some interns walk around in cow costumes passing out candy to get the office excited for the next day’s activities.
July 9th: Cow Appreciation Day
-In the cafeteria, we had a cow appreciation wall where employees were encouraged to write their appreciation for Chick-fil-A on black sticky notes and place it as a cow spot on to a cow wall decal.
-Bright & early in the morning, we held a pancake breakfast featuring the interns as the chefs
-At lunch we held a cow costume contest and played fun music. The winner of the costume contest received a Yeti Cooler with summer time goodies inside.
-In the afternoon, we did a fishbowl drawing for another three sets of Atlanta Braves baseball tickets.
The Support Center staff enjoyed the day by dressing up and bringing their kids along to enjoy the hype. It was definitely a success!
Here some pictures of the day:
Quick post but just wanted to give you all an update of the last week!
