Blog #28 “Keeping new Customers.”

January 22, 2021

I’m writing this the day after our 46 president was inaugurated and, after, let’s say, a dramatic post election period.  I’m also writing this with a current book I’m reading called “First Principles” which is about the first four U.S. presidents and how they came to the ideals that formed our country.  I will make […]

Service Across the Pond
August 19, 2019

Fab Service was started with the goal of having the conversation about service. Discussing how we feel as a customer. Sharing our experiences and making our service better as a result.

#22 Fab Moments
May 21, 2019

It’s been a couple of years now since we set out on this journey of creating a culture of Fab Service.  This was after concluding that service is not something you can train in a sequential process but rather that you build throughout the organization over time.  We’ve learned a lot over the past two […]

I was recently out to dinner with my wife Michele. We were at an italian restaurant that was new to us since we were visiting from out of town.  I didn’t see my favorite dish on the menu so I thought I’d ask if they could make it. When I asked the waitress if the […]
