WCC: What is your best business success story?
Circling back to our purpose, we’ve served up hundreds of well-being hours, cut CO2 emissions for our planet and eliminated hundreds of car rides. We’ve also built more community and connections through group events. Our service providers are growing their mobile businesses, and we continue to grow our provider base.
We’ve been extremely busy over the past six months in partnering with National companies and rolling out within their Winnipeg offices, and supporting their employee’s well-being. We’ve had chair massage days, car service days, dry cleaning pick-ups, mobile haircuts, wine and fitness classes, group smoothie events and more. Q1 is on with peazy’s continued roll-out in more partnered locations.
