This week is a particularly special week on our Behind The Bench blog. That’s because the very first bakery and restaurant has opened in the Mitahato Village region of Kenya, Africa! And we were lucky enough to help with the cause by donating an oven and other accessories to help get them started. We’re very excited and humbled as a team to be able to contribute to such a wonderful cause and milestone for the Mitahato Village region in Kenya.

So, our CEO Grant, along with a few of our market specialists, took to the streets in our home neighborhood of Liberty Village to set-up interviews with local business owners to show exactly how effortless it is to make the magic happen!

The Christmas Season is just around the corner! While most big companies will rent out some venue for their staff to get drunk and jolly while snacking on finger foods and clinging to their work cliques, Parkbench is more about regular outings together as a group so everyone can get to know their work mates and come together as a unit working together toward one common goal.
