From Our Staff
Each day, we get to serve businesses from various industries with everything they need to keep their offices running. In celebration of Valentines Day, we would like to shine the spotlight on a couple of clients making a difference. We love working with all of our clients and are extremely proud of the ones below who range from offering essential services to the Madison community, to those committed to a better future for all Madisonians.
There’s so much to love about spring in Madison. May is my favorite month because of the nice weather and everything is in bloom throughout town. As May progresses, I ring in the “unofficial start of summer” in the most Wisconsinite way possible: Brat Fest. This festival features high quality brats, beer, ice cream, along with plenty of music and fun for the whole family. While there are many hours spent planning the event, it’s something I look forward to every year. Below are my three favorite things about Brat Fest.
We’re getting ready for the unofficial kick off to summer: Brat Fest 2016! Memorial Day Weekend is quickly approaching, and this event is one of the top reasons why we love spring in Madison. Our very own Rose, along with other Madison area businesses, have been working hard to make this year’s festival the best one yet. This year’s festival will once again take place from Friday, May 27 to Monday, May 30 on Willow Island near Alliant Energy Center. The festival is FREE to attend and all stages can be accessed without any fees.
More than ever, local businesses face unique challenges. EZ Office Products (EZOP) is always thinking about our future workforce in Dane County and why it is so important to our overall economic prosperity. This summer, we partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County (BGDC) and their mentoring program to participate in providing a meaningful professional experience. Meet Yee Lee, our 2017 summer intern. EZOP provided Yee with a multi-faceted experience — from understanding how we help customers, to distribution and the way in which we care for customer deliveries, to marketing and the importance of good graphics, and even going through the exercise of an executive briefing to our owners, Rose and Gary Molz. Here’s a little more about Yee and his work at EZOP this summer.
Meet one of our EZOPeops, Steve Schwenn. A graduate of Madison College, Steve joined our crew last year as one of our Delivery Service Reps. Before working at EZOP, Steve was a service sales rep for Cintas. Read more about Steve below.
Sports play a big role in our daily water cooler talk. Whether it’s about our Packers, Badgers, or even the Mallards, us Wisconsinites love our local teams. In fact, Amanda and I wrote a song to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” recently for a Dane Buy Local Silent Auction:
Summertime in Madison is the best time to be here! Personally, Gary and I celebrate our anniversary in July, and both of our birthdays in August, making it our favorite time of year. There’s also something for everyone going on throughout downtown. Here are some of our staff’s picks for the best things to do during the summer.
If you do not already know, I am passionate about the environment. Many of the things we take for granted, such as the foods we eat and the sights that we enjoy, are being impacted by climate change and unsustainable practices. As we inch closer to Earth Day 2016, I like to look back at some of the accomplishments our business has made to become more eco-friendly. Here are a few things I’m proud of.
