As a reward for working so hard during the economic slump, owners of a popular Nashville restaurant are taking 48 employees on an Alaskan cruise.
At the end of a staff retreat last September, Puffy Muffin owners Lynda and Jack Stone unveiled the trip plans and told employees that if they met some aggressive sales goals for the next 10 months their deck chairs — as a group — were awaiting them on a Holland America cruise line bound for Alaska.
“We have the most wonderful people working here,” Lynda Stone said. “This was a way to really motivate everyone and to have a different attitude during the crunch.”
Expect to find the doors at each of their locations closed and locked until August 9.
