At Sip and Ship, our employees are our most valuable assets. They are our partners and we are an extension of each other. Working together to create a special place for our community to experience excellent customer service and care through our shared core values. Together as each other's biggest allies and cheerleaders, eager to provide support where it’s needed, and ready to celebrate each victory whether it’s big or small. Familiar with failure, and disappointment too —in the face of it right at our service counters and behind closed doors to support and get through together.
Which makes our annual CHWAG (pronounced sh-wag) awards event one of the important ways we honor our employees, reminding them how special they are and making sure they feel appreciated. CHWAG is an acronym used to describe Sip and Ship’s core values: courage, hard work, authenticity, and gratitude. Peer nominated, each year we spotlight our teammates who go the extra mile to serve and connect with others daily. Sometimes it’s as simple as making a customer laugh over a cup of coffee, connecting over life milestones, or showing up for a struggling coworker to assist them during a hectic day.
This year we were grateful to gather with the Sip and Ship team for a night filled with good food, great camaraderie, and even better company! We announced our 2022 CHWAG achievers and celebrated every employee with dinner from Sunny Hill and goodie-bag gifts from one of our favorite local vendors.
We are delighted to share with you how our achievers help create the magic that happens at Sip and Ship.
Always up for a challenge, Yasmin puts herself and her heart on the frontline every day, making it her sole mission to leave our guests with a positive experience.
Joe is a jack of all trades, assuming any role with an open mind and an unreserved willingness to support in any capacity needed.

We hope this sentiment may inspire you to acknowledge the people in your life that leave a positive impact by making your days a little brighter! For us here at Sip and Ship, our team and our customers are of the highest value, so go forth knowing that you are treasured!
