Many a company has a Friday tradition. Whether it’s the cliché “Casual Friday”, the more inventive “Formal Friday” (from mogo money), or the fun and outgoing “Ryeday” (from CityMax). Wolfgang Commercial Painters, a local paint company, is taking it to the next step.
“We are on a quest to find the best burger in the lower mainland,” says Greg Bertram, Operations Manager for Wolfgang Commercial Painters and Official Research for Wolfgang Burger Division. “Everybody loves a good burger, it’s relatable. The definition of a good burger varies though, that is why we have a pretty explicit rating system. We rate the burgers on a scale of 1-10 then post the results with a write up and sometimes video on our blog.
When asked, David Notte (the owner and CEO of Wolfgang Commercial Painters) explains why taking time off in the middle of the day every Friday is good for the company. “We have a strong emphasis on culture and values at Wolfgang. Our culture is: Everybody performs, everybody is open, and everybody has fun. It’s key to us that we really live our culture to make Wolfgang an awesome place to work. Everyone has really rallied around Burger Fridays and we all really look forward to it throughout the week.”
“When it comes to company values Burger Friday also helps to promote them” says Dave. “We have 4 values as a company: accountability, teamwork, open, and win/win. Burger Fridays definitely promote all 4 of these but especially teamwork and win/win. Burger Fridays are really brining the team together and we are all winning when we get to eat some of the most talked about burgers in town.”
