Employee Appreciation Day was a little different for some of the employees at Heavenly Pizza this year. Heavenly Pizza is located in Ohio and owned by Josh Elchert. Josh realized that life is tough on many people, and a lot of people make a lot of sacrifices to keep their lights on.
So, he didn’t just want to thank them. He wanted to show them that he really appreciated their time and work by taking the entire day of sales and giving it back to the employees who worked that day. Each employee made $78 per hour that day, and Josh had this to say to the community in his Facebook post.
“Well, you guys are awesome! Thanks to all of you, our employees had a huge day! Better than I hoped!”
“You can have the best pizza in the world; he told CBS affiliate WTOL. “If you have no one here to make it, it doesn’t matter.”
“Our employees have been so great during COVID, during the pandemic, during this season of uncertainty. They’ve just been fantastic. They show up every day, and they’re here in a good mood… we want to take a day and appreciate them.”
“They’ve worked very hard over the past year, and their dedication and loyalty to us is greatly appreciated, so hats off to them, Josh said. “I applaud my employees. I appreciate and value them.”
