Menu for the Week of June 10, 2013 — “SausageCare” Comes to TST!

So, we know that “Obamacare” has become a four-letter word — strangely whether you’re in favor of it or against it.  Don’t worry — this post isn’t about Obamacare, but it is about healthcare and a moment of pure personal pride at The Spotted Trotter which has become a reality in the past several weeks.  Are we rolling in profits?  No.  We barely break even most weeks.  Are we operating in constant fear that a piece of our equipment will break?  You bet.  Are we able to pay our employees what we wish we could?  Not yet.  But are we able to offer our employees healthcare?  Now the answer is YES!  Last week, TST held open enrollment at our facility to offer our 8 employees the opportunity to purchase healthcare.  As part of the program, TST will pay 50% of the employee only premium if our employees choose to enroll.  People in the service industry have gone too long, working way too hard, and living in constant fear that they might get a cold or have to go to the doctor.  Especially because Kevin is a Type I diabetic, insulin dependent since he was diagnosed at age 12, we know how important health care is and have been working towards making it available to our TST family since we opened.  That dream became a reality last week, and full-time employees working at TST as of July 1 will have health care benefits if they want them.

We have so much more work to do in this city and beyond, and we count our blessings each and every day that we have been able to open our own business in these tough times, but we know that if we are truly to be a part of creating a long-term, sustainable evolution in Atlanta — not just a blip on the radar — we must put our people before profits and take care of the family members (employees) who help us achieve our dream each and every day.  We hope this newest offering will make for a happier, healthier team that we can count on for years to come.
