Celebrating with Cravia through The Founder’s Awards
A company is only as great as its people – and that is precisely what Cravia’s management and employees came together to celebrate at The Founder’s Awards recently held at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai for the company’s 10th Anniversary. The extravagant awards ceremony, which witnessed a gathering of 400 employees from all of Cravia’s franchises, recognized various qualities such as loyalty, integrity and contribution. The Founder’s Award trophies were awarded to seven employees from Zaatar w Zeit, six from Cinnabon and two from Cravia as a mark of their commitment and dedication to making Cravia a household name in the UAE. Employees also received five and ten ‘years of service’ awards as a token of gratitude for their hard work and as a positive reminder to keep working towards another successful decade. As Cravia continues to grow and excel, so do its successful franchises that continue to make their mark in the region: Cinnabon and Seattle’s Best Coffee have opened four new outlets this year alone, with plans for further expansion in the coming year. Zaatar w Zeit is set to increase its accessibility to diners with a conveniently located venue to open in Dubai Marina. It will also become the first casual dining restaurant in Dubai to allow customers to place their orders online and through three new mobile applications (Iphone, Ipad, Blackberry). Cravia is also excelling at an exponential rate with the establishment of an expanding Marketing Department, a new HR Manager and a new Internal Auditor. The company also promoted 57 employees from within the system in 2011. Acknowledgement of the achievements of individuals who contribute to the success of the company is vital to Cravia’s culture, and all eyes look forward to next year as every day is a chance to outdo yesterday.
