Our corporate culture allows for many “family friendly” traditions, such as Spring Season hot dog parties, costumes at Halloween, pot-lucks and the occasional BBQ. It’s certainly not BBQ weather right now at our Michigan locations, but there is one February tradition we celebrate despite the snow, rain and cold temps. Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras (the day before Ash Wednesday) is also known as Paczki Day to many metro Detroiters. Paczki (pronounced poonch-key, and means “little packet” in Polish), are deep-fried Polish treats which are usually filled with jelly, custard or other deliciousness (see photos, some are even filled with Coney Island Dogs). So while there are many traditions that take place at GroupeSTAHL companies around the world, one of the “sweetest,” and certainly the one with the most powdered sugar (and calories) is Paczki Day. Thank you to all the folks that brought them in to share with your teammates. And an extra thank you to Dane Clement for sending some additional Mardi Gras spirit from New Orleans with a traditional King Cake …Let the Good Times Roll or “Laissez le bon temps rouler” as they might say on Bourbon Street.
