We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Kip Damrow,
Hilton Garden Inn Wilmington Mayfaire Town Center, NC

As part of our week-long Housekeeping Week celebration, we partnered with a local ice truck vendor. There is nothing like the nostalgia of an ice cream truck that brings back fond childhood memories. So, at 2pm on the Friday of Housekeeping Week, the ice cream truck pulled up to the hotel, with it’s customary ice cream truck music playing, to give away free ice cream treats to the enire housekeeping staff. Everyone loved the surprise! Nothing like a free ice cream bar on a warm day, to put a smile on someone’s face.

The ice cream truck simply charges us the retail cost of the ice cream. Nothing for their time. They also allow our management staff to sit in the truck to hand-out the treats through the window.

A simple but highly effective way to recognize our team for their hard work.
