Omaha Steaks Gold Choice Award Winner

Omaha Steaks Gold Choice Award Winner

Jeff Brown, formerly of Western, was recently honored to receive a Gold Choice Award from his employer of five years, Omaha Steaks.

Only two Gold Choice Awards are awarded annually at the 96th St. plant.

Jeff proved to be an extremely valuable asset to the 96th Street plant in 2013. In addition to his normal steak cutter duties, Jeff took on the added responsibilities of operating a band saw, trimming for the Opticut slicer and even driving one of our city delivery trucks. By taking on these tasks, Jeff allowed us to continue operating without the added expense of hiring and training, which significantly reduced our labor costs in November and December. Jeffs ability and willingness to drive one of our city trucks reduced the amount of overtime by 25%, ensuring satisfied customers during our peak season.
