Men’s Wearhouse treats its 14,000-plus employees to pizza

Houston -- The Men's Wearhouse surprised more than 14,000 employees with pizza delivery to every store across North America. To thank employees for their hard work and dedication, more than 42,400 slices of pizza were delivered to more than 1,200 Men’s Wearhouse, MW Cleaners, and K&G Fashion Superstore locations in the United States and Moores Clothing for Men stores in Canada.

"The belief that our company should be a fun and rewarding place to work is central to our corporate culture," said Julie Panaccione, VP of events, Men’s Warehouse, who coordinated the surprise delivery. "Pizza was just one way to express our gratitude for each and every one of our associates' efforts."

The pizza initiative follows a long history of employee appreciation, which includes throwing annual black-tie parties, maintaining an on-site child-care center, and offering fully paid sabbaticals.
