Each year, Jennifer and Allen DeNyse, along with all the employees and their families are invited to the annual Holiday Party. The social committee decorate and adorn the shop into a winter wonderland full of holiday decor. The shop closes at noon, and all the employees are able to take a little time to celebrate another year of success. One of the highlights of the event is the annual roast. For those who do not personally know Allen or Jennifer DeNyse, they both love to laugh and have a good time. And like most families, you have to tease a little too. Why not have a little fun on the expense of one another, and nothing is off limits when it comes to the laughs. We professionally call this our Service Awards, however for anyone that has been with DeNyse Companies, Five, Ten, Fifteen, or Twenty Years, this is really the annual roast.
Each year, our design team is given the task to make us laugh with a morphed picture of our lucky recipient. Jennifer with her brilliant smile, and easy laugh takes the time to write a speech, or roast if you will, about each employees skills, all with her famous humor. Even with the great gift giveaways, the always delicious meals, I think the annual Service Awards / Roast is what always brings in the crowd.

This year’s festivities continued into the evening. Allen and Jennifer took the employees to an afternoon at The World of Coke. A large caravan of DeNyse employees traveled to take in all the taste and sights that The World of Coke had to offer. One of our favorite sights are the new Holiday Ornaments that adorn the heart of Pemberton Place. We are proud of all our completed projects,. however there is something very exciting about visiting a completed project for an iconic company such as The World of Coke. The fact that they have hundreds of different Coca-cola flavors helps too.
DeNyse Companies prides itself on having a family environment, just walk through the doors at DeNyse, and you will see a true family at work, or at play enjoying a holiday party and a day at The World of Coke.
