My employees are more than staff to me, they are family. I have come to know their spouses, children and family. For a long time, I have wanted to establish a Noodle Care Program for my much-loved staff, a fund JNH employees could access in time of need. The only glitch in my plan, a way to reward the people that contributed to the fund.
As destiny would have it, after an influx of requests from customers for a vegan dessert menu choice, I happened to get a call from Houston’s baker, Vicky, asking if I would try her vegan cookies. I loved the peanut butter and chocolate chip, and I was I was tasting I began thinking about how to merge these delicious cookies with my valuable employees. I decided from the beginning that all the proceeds from the sale of these vegan cookies would go to the Noodle Care Program for all the employees at JNH.
September marks six months of Noodle Care Program and we have sold more than 2300 of them. This makes me so proud. To me, there is no greater feeling than getting to eat a great tasting vegan cooking, while knowing that 100% of the proceeds go towards helping a noodle dealer in a time of need (we don’t use any of the proceeds for marketing or product purchase).
Next time you visit a JNH near you, try a vegan cookie for a great cause. Get ready to feel sweet inside and out.
