We are all Thankful for...

GET TO KNOW YOUR BARISTAS

To kick off our Employee Engagement project, we asked our team for a youth photo of themselves along with a response: What are you thankful for this year?...Here is what we got....

Madison:

" I am thankful for my best friends and my family"
Cristina:
" I am thankful for my cat, Sandie, my caring boyfriend, my friends, my new home and Carmen's Coffee!"
Elisa:
"I am thankful for my resilience and for having the passion to really get to know people and meet them where they are. I am tremendously grateful for John and my team at Carmen's (present and past) that have adopted our vision and are always making our community of coffee a priority."
Kael (Sharp):
"I'm grateful for my growing ability to push boundaries and not get bogged down by small problems. That and good food!"
Nathan:
"I am thankful for the support of my family with love and with school, my best supporter and girlfriend Moli, my dogs, living in Long Beach, starting fresh and......Beer!"
John: 
" You! Without you, we would not be here right now. Your support in our brand, supports the visions and goals of our employees' futures."

Our purpose of asking for a youth photo is to just remind us that even as a child, we are empowered to choose to internalize only the good experiences in life, and that even as adults we have the power to make a difference in our own lives by our reactions to the circumstances that we are faced with.
