We’ve been working on a campaign to highlight businesses that hire people in recovery. We just completed what we hope will be the first of many video profiles.
The Lunchroom is a special place. They serve great food. Really great food. They are a successful and growing business. And, 11 out of their 27 employees are in recovery from addiction. Phillis Engelbert likes to help people but she says she’s learned that hiring people in recovery is good business. “The track record we’ve had with people in recovery has been excellent. . . . We actively seek them out. It gives this place a sense of purpose that’s more than just making awesome food and being here for our customers.”
