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 in short, 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.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the gThankYou! gift coupons. Everything arrived within a few days of ordering and it was all very neatly wrapped and organized for our use. I know our employees are going to love them! Thank you for the personal service and your patience while we figured out our payment situation. Your company has been a pleasure to do business with and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again in the future. Best wishes to everyone at gThankYou for a Happy Thanksgiving!”

gThankYou History

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.

A Solution

Recognizing these logistical and employee recognition challenges, gThankYou was created. 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!

Senior management LOVES sharing the gift of a Thanksgiving turkey with employees and we’ve been doing it for decades. However, when you grow over the years to multiple companies and ten thousand employees, orchestrating frozen turkey distribution is a logistical nightmare. I know, I’ve been doing it!

Thus, I can’t tell you how excited I was to discover gThankYou. With gThankYou everything is easier; easier to order, delivery is quicker, pricing is discounted, employees can shop at any major grocery store and, I love the free gratitude cards. Most importantly, did I mention no more frozen turkey logistics!? Giving a coupon is much more convenient than a frozen bird.

Looking ahead, it’s a relief to know we can give employees a gift during the holidays and not tax it yet still allow them to control when and where they use it .

To sum it up, I would recommend gThankYou to any company looking to gift their employees with ease and choice!!!

The gThankYou Difference

We think it’s our great customer service but customers tell us it’s:

The holiday gift that meets de minimis employee gift law requirements

1. The easy and affordable employee gift that complies with de minimis gift law.

Firstly, gThankYou Gift Certificates are Manufacturer Coupons good for a specific type of item (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. 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, please consult with your accounting or tax professional.

Furthermore, unlike brand specific options like Norbest®, gThankYou Certificates provide both brand and store choice.

Custom Planning for Large Distributed Work forces

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.

I just opened my box of Turkey and Ham Vouchers and I was “Wowed” immediately! After learning that my local store was no longer going to be doing vouchers, I was at a loss as to what to do for the food pantry clients I serve. Your presentation of the items and attention to every detail has made this an awesome experience for our pantry. I was even surprised at the nice “How to Use your gThankYou! Certificate” Letter. It saved operating cost by not needing to make copies and time by the ease of it all. Rest assured we will be using your company again next year for Easter and Thanksgiving! Blessings on your company!”
