For the 22nd year, Hobee’s employees cast their votes for the co-workers who most distinguished themselves during the prior year. Lots of inspiring comments accompanied the ballots. In the end, our blue ribbon committee had to choose winners (always a very difficult task!) During February and March, we tracked down the winners and finalists in each category to surprise them with certificates, gourmet baskets and gift cards. Updates and photos were also posted on Facebook and Twitter. (So make sure you’re following us!) For a full listing of winners since 1993, click here.
