Hey, TimeForge fans! If you were wondering why we weren’t at the Restaurant Leadership Conference this year, it’s because we were at the Mazzio’s annual franchisee meeting in Tulsa, OK.
We had a truly wonderful time catching up with the Mazzio’s team in person, and we’re humbled to have been included in this year’s event.
Here’s a quick recap:
TimeForge celebrates Mazzio’s Italian Eatery!
The annual conference took place at the Hard Rock Hotel. It included a golf tournament with prizes, a yummy dinner (no, it wasn’t pizza!), breakfast, and a franchise partner awards ceremony.
TimeForge partnered with our friends at CBS NorthStar to provide all attendees with flash drives and Tide stain remover pens. (We all know how stubborn tomato sauce can be.)
A big thank you to Mazzio’s for the backpacks, t-shirts, and tumblers; we loved them!
(Update: It’s been 8 months since the conference, and I’m still getting a ton of use out of that Mazzio’s backpack! I take it with me everywhere.)
Although some April showers paid a visit to the golf course during the tournament, everything worked out in the end. Audrey and I aren’t great at golf, so our friend Jeremy Julian of Restaurant Technology Guys got to play a round.
TimeForge was proud to give away two iPads with leather cases during the raffle. Afterward, we were honored to celebrate the winners of the franchisee excellence awards. It’s always great to see hardworking owner-operators rewarded for their efforts.
