The Spice of Life

A little over two months ago, I posted about my last day at my former job and that I was looking forward to exciting, new opportunities. At the time, I had fully intended to submit another post on the following Monday to talk about my new job. Unfortunately, time got away from me and I am just now getting to share my wonderful news. If you haven’t already guessed by the image in this post, I took a job working in the IT department of Penzeys Spices.

I’m actually glad that I didn’t post right away. I’ve learned quite a bit about this company since then and I wouldn’t have done it justice. If you have been to the Penzeys stores or been the recipient of their catalogs, you may already be aware that the company has a commitment to the idea of Kindness. To paraphrase the Kindness Works section in the catalog: Penzeys believes that many people cook as an act of kindness towards their loved ones. And this kindness helps to make a better world one meal at a time.

I’m sure that the cynic in you is saying “What!?!?! Yeah… right!” Well, after being here a couple of months, I can see it. This is a company that values their employees and embodies what they print in the catalog. Quite a novel idea in today’s world.

Love to Cook – Cook to Love.
