Special dinner for some very special people

Coffee Wagera hosted a special dinner for some very special people – the managers of all outlets – at Clock Tower rooftop! One of the highlights of the evening were the personalized thank-you mugs that Mush presented to each one of them, as a small token of appreciation for their loyalty, dedication and full support of all CW values!

Following are short stories of all the managers:

He was promoted to shift supervisor at CW-Badar in Jan, 2020 and now he’s been promoted as a Manager!
Arshad is one of the best supervisor CW ever had and loved by many due to his dedication and enthusiasm. 

Arshad says: “Coffee Wagera ka environment bohat acha hai. Mush family ki tarah treat kartay hain or bohat help kartay hain. Meri sari professional grooming Coffee Wagera me hi huwi hai. Mein poori shift run karta hu or Insha Allah poora outlet run kar sakta hu.

He says: “Asad Bhai or Mehwish Aapi bohat achay hen, apnay bachon ki tarah har cheez sikhayi hai mujhay. Har buray kaam par toktay hain or achay kaam par lazmi appreciate kartay hain.
