A gThankYou Story
Rick Kiley’s career began in Fortune 500 company sales, marketing and new business development with General Mills and Kraft Foods. In fact, as far back as college, he was a factory foreman with Kraft Foods’ Oscar Mayer unit, in our gThankYou home town of Madison, Wisconsin.
Later, his entrepreneurial ventures began with early stage companies developing groundbreaking innovations in food technology and supply chain management, eventually leading to successful turnarounds for troubled organizations.
Subsequently, as a manager and entrepreneur, Rick became passionate about meaningful, affordable ways to appreciate employees. And over time, he has become committed to great customer service, nurturing effective workplace teams and building vibrant companies based on gratitude.
Thus, with these many years of experience, entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for incorporating gratitude and recognition into corporate culture, Rick founded gThankYou, giving workplace leaders a meaningful, easy way to thank employees – the foundation of any great workplace.
gThankYou’s very first Certificate of Gratitude was our Turkey Gift Certificate, good for any brand, size or preparation of whole turkey, (such as Butterball®, Norbest®, HoneySuckle®, Trader Joes®, Whole Foods® Organic, or any other), from major U.S. grocery stores.
The Turkey Gift Certificate was the first because, as so many know, the gift of a company holiday turkey has been a business tradition for over a century. It’s a uniquely American tradition and a gift that’s enjoyed by everyone during Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season.
However, maintaining this tradition hasn’t always been easy. Distributing whole, frozen turkeys to a large workplace is very inconvenient and quite a daunting task. Employers must figure out how to purchase, store and handle frozen turkeys. In addition, on the receiving side, employees must make room in their freezer or take delivery at an inconvenient time. Not to mention, the turkey could be the wrong size, too small for the employee’s holiday dinner or too large for the oven.
Recognizing these logistical and employee recognition challenges, Rick created gThankYou. This made turkey gift-giving much easier for employers and better for employees, who can now select the turkey that’s best for their family, when and where they want to buy it.
With the success of our Turkey Gift Certificates, gThankYou expanded the selection of products with additional food items that make perfect holiday gifts, workplace incentives, customer thank you’s, and more!

The gThankYou Difference
We think it’s our great customer service but customers tell us it’s:
1. The easy and affordable employee gift that complies with de minimis gift law.
gThankYou Gift Certificates are Manufacturer Coupons good for a specific item or type of items (such as a whole turkey, ham, pie, or food groceries in general), have an expiration date and provide no cash or residual value. In addition, they cannot be deposited in a bank like Butterball® Gift Checks and other Holiday Gift Checks or used to buy any other store merchandise like store Gift Cards. Even Walmart Turkey Gift Cards are not entirely restricted. That is to say, companies who want an employee holiday gift, that complies with de minimis fringe benefit laws, choose gThankYou. However, if you are concerned with tax implications of employee gift-giving, please consult with your accounting or tax professional.
And don’t forget, unlike brand specific options like Norbest® where you may not have a store carrying that brand in your area, gThankYou Certificates provide both brand and store choice.
2. Customized logistics for very large distributed workplaces.
If you have a large or distributed workplace it can be expensive and time-consuming to distribute gifts. gThankYou helps make it easy! To clarify, if you need location specific ordering or individual mail delivery, let’s talk, we can help. In short, we’ll work with you to develop a distribution plan that meets your needs, timing and budget.
