Vista Clara Coffee owner and master roaster Dave Stewart was recently presented with the Patriot Award by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) for his support of hiring and supporting guard members. Dave was nominated by his employee Scott Noll. Scott serves in the US Marine Core Reserve.
Scott, in his nomination shared that Dave and the entire company were extremely accommodating to his drill schedule and supportive of the short notice he had to give when the exercise orders changed last minute.
"My family and I believe it is our duty to provide jobs and support to those that serve our country" stated Dave Stewart. "It is an honor to have Scott on the team and it is because of the same work ethic and commitment that made him succeed in the military that he has made himself a valuable member of the business.
As shown above, Dave was presented the award by Mr. John Patterson who serves as the Chair for the ESGR in Washington.
We are so happy as a company and honored to be recognized for this, and it makes us so happy to extend the opportunity of employment to those who are serving our country.
Freshly roasted coffee isn't just a product we offer. It's an experience we want to share with you. And with every great experience, there comes a story. This is our story and we invite you to be a part of it.
