Remaining Guest First Through Responsible Growth
How many times have you seen companies lose touch with their values and mission by growing too quickly or without a clear strategy that focuses on the people they serve? Not so at T&K, where we refer to our strategy as "Grow When Ready."
This means that we refuse to take advantage of even the most compelling growth opportunity until we're confident that we have a group of seasoned Managers and an enthusiastic, talented team of Hourly Team Members to model our values and mission and commit to always placing the Guest first.
Growing Our Own Leaders
At T&K, growth also means that we provide all members of the workforce the opportunity to grow their skills and expand their responsibilities. In fact, over 50% of our Management staff has been promoted from within. We have plenty of careers to keep our workforce learning and growing, and are committed to developing our most motivated workers as they grow into new roles.
