The HVAC repair crew at the Orland Park office did $100,000 worth of sales last week.
That was 20% higher than any other week in the history of the company.
It was double the amount of any other store in the midwest. One reason was a huge commercial installation job that took three days to complete. We had five techs working on the commercial installation job in Orland Park. The guys worked from sun up until sundown to complete the project within the scheduled and permitted time frame. The manager believed that was the one reason why the sales were so high and everyone in the corporate office was totally and completely impressed. In fact, we decided to send a bunch of pizzas to the Orland Park HVAC repair office. On Friday, the corporate office sent 10 pizzas to the repair office. The pizza guy showed up around noon with our order. He was supposed to bring 10 pieces, but he actually brought 13. The guy told me that he messed up on a couple of the pizzas. Instead of throwing them in the garbage, he decided to bake them and send them to the HVAC repair office. The guys on the crew were excited to come back to the office to enjoy free pizza. As the repair technicians were finishing up with the morning jobs, they all came back to the office to get a hot piece of pizza for lunch. The crew members thought it was a nice gesture from the corporate office and everyone enjoyed the mid day break from work.
