Customer Appreciation Days with All of the Toppings

Work Uniform Customer Appreciation Days | Roscoe Chicago

At Roscoe, we know who we have to thank for 96 years of success in the work uniform rental business. But sometimes just saying "thank you" isn't enough.

That's why, for more than 15 years, we've been setting aside a day every month or so to show our customer appreciation with more than just words. We find that it means more when you can deliver a thank you with four giant Damenzo's pizzas.

That was the feeling we got recently at a Customer Appreciation Day and pizza party we hosted for one of our clients whose employees have been wearing our uniforms ever since firing their national supplier about six years ago. The client, which manufacturers gears for many different industries, has a voluntary uniform policy, so we knew we were doing something right when the number of employees choosing to rent our uniforms doubled – and then tripled.

Coat Angels Campaign Leaves Roscoe Employees Feeling Warm

Coat Angels Campaign Leaves Roscoe Employees Feeling Warm

At Roscoe, we help people get dressed for work all year long. But it's a special honor when we get to help Chicago area schoolchildren get dressed properly for winter.

Since 2006, the not-for-profit Coat Angels organization has been outfitting underprivileged Chicago children with new coats, hats, fleeces, and gloves.

It's an effort that has helped keep more than 4,000 area children warm over the years. The all-volunteer program collects donations, partners with retailers, and shops for coats and accessories for specific children identified by teachers and social workers.

At Roscoe, our fundraising drive for the Coat Angels will begin next month. HR Team Leader Theresa Faulkner estimates that up to 85% of our employees participated last year, either by donating money, volunteering to help with coat deliveries, or both. Employee fundraising was matched by a company donation.
