‘Because of the pandemic and staffing shortages, Hernandez said she wanted the party to be HUGE’

Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA reported, “Owner Aimee Hernandez said she’s been going all out with her holiday parties since she bought the store in 2016. Up until now, she’s always done a white elephant-style party, but she said it sometimes left people with gifts they didn’t want — like a beard trimmer for a single high school girl.”

“This year, because of the pandemic and staffing shortages, Hernandez said she wanted the party to be ‘HUGE,’” KDKA noted.

Hernandez passed out tickets based on who worked the most shifts. She told KDKA. “I scrimped and saved every extra penny all year in secret, it was so hard to keep it a surprise!”

Hernandez was able to surprise her restaurant staff with prizes like “a week’s worth of salary, a big screen TV, $1,500 in Apple gift cards, a Nintendo Switch, six Steelers tickets, a Louis Vuitton purse and the big prize: a RAV4.”

The car was the biggest prize by far and Hernandez said it went to employee who deserved it the most.

Hernandez: ‘The winner of the car was legitimately the most deserving employee to win it’

Hernandez said, “The winner of the car was legitimately the most deserving employee to win it. He is an incredibly hard worker, always smiling and positive, and has the kindest heart. He has a little girl, and really needed a reliable vehicle.”

The owner said of her employees, “They are an amazing unit, and support each other in ways that make my heart so happy.”
