Where It All Began

If it were any other year, we’d be making grand plans right now for our company-wide holiday party and all-team meeting, which we hold every January for our employees and their loved ones. We’d be booking out an event space in one of our customer’s restaurants, planning menus for several days of dinners and meetings, and making lists of the perfect gifts that our people would actually want to receive.

But it’s not any other year. It’s 2020. This holiday season, Team 86 is committed to supporting the industry we love, even if we can’t do it together in the same room.

The idea for #86REgifts came from two incredible members of our team, Chris & Alex (husband and wife!), who got an early start on their holiday shopping. As they were perusing Amazon for their loved ones, they realized there was a better way they could spend their money this holiday season.

“What if we gave our friends and family restaurant gift cards this year that they can use in the future or for carryout and delivery right now?”

Call us inspired. 

No one on our team needs another piece of company swag, a fancy electronic for their home, or a gift basket of overpriced snack foods. Our industry needs us this holiday season. To thank our team for all of their hard work this year, today each of our employees is getting $100 to spend on gift cards at the restaurants of their choosing. We're encouraging them to cash them in throughout November and December to support their favorite restaurants in what is usually the busiest time of the year. 

We hope some delicious food cooked by their favorite establishments will bring even the smallest slice of comfort this holiday season.

If you're able, we hope you'll join us.
- Team 86
