“ Each of you contributed to these monumental achievements”, said John Phillips, CEO of Grand + Benedicts, in an email that went out to all employees. From a bustling warehouse expediting orders at record rates to a sales team working hard to keep up with increased demand, it was a collective effort across all departments that made this happen.
