Everyone at Neal Brothers knows Francesca because she holds the title of managing payroll and if you have a dog (the one who gives out treats whenever you walk by- to the dogs that is!) However, we wanted everyone to get know Francesca a little more, so sit down with one her favourite snacks (Honey Mustard Pretzels) and enjoy reading about another one of the great team members we get to work with!
- How long have you been at Neal Brothers and what do you do here?
I have been here for 1 year, and I take care of accounting and finances. I oversee accounts receivable and also manage payroll making sure everyone gets paid on time!
- Why do you love working for Neal Brothers?
The environment here at the office is contagious, every day you walk into all the smiling faces and friendly banter. The brothers are also lovely to work with; it’s very rewarding to work beside such awesome people every day!
- What would you say is the most adventurous thing you have ever done is?
Well we (my husband and I) travel a lot, and from all the trips the most adventurous thing we’ve done is hiking a few of the world’s gorgeous mountains. A few of the mountains we have hiked include Flat Top Mountain (Alaska) and an active volcano on the Big Island in Hawaii.
- What are two of your spots you have traveled to and why?
To pick two is hard, but we loved Hawaii and Fiji. The beautiful scenery, the culture, and the people make these spots amazing.
- What does your day off look like?
Usually, running around after my two year old son! This includes taking him to activities such as gymnastics and swimming or out to the local park. My husband and I also own a pet store, Global Pet Foods in King City, so you can also find me there on my days off!
- Speaking of the pet store, do you have any pets at home?
Yes, we have a senior chocolate lab named Bruin. (Side Note: Francesca’s office is the stopping point for every office dog at Neal Brothers. She always has some tasty treats to offer them after they sit pretty!)
- What is your Goodness?
My Goodness is my husband, who is my BFF, son, family, and friends. Also, at the pet store we meet some great people and pets alike! We aim to participate in various charities with the store as well.
- Where is your favourite place to wine and dine in your city and why?
Locale in King City, it has great homemade and rustic food, set in a great atmosphere.
- What is your favorite Neal Brothers product and how do you eat it?
Having to pick a favourite or two is definitely a tough job! But if I must, Cheese Puffs, Honey Mustard Pretzels, and the Srirachup Kettle chips! How I eat them? Straight from the bag and by myself!
It was so much fun getting to know Francesca! Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!
