It's time for a #PEETNIKSPOTLIGHT! Molly Berger is a power house in our retail team. She brings enthusiasm, knowledge and empathy to her work! See what our Regional Leader Mieke Fonteyn had to say about this stellar peetnik and her recent promotion! "There is literally no better feeling than seeing amazing internal talent grow! I am so incredibly proud to announce Molly Berger's promotion to The Bay Area Regional District Leader Team! During her 12 + years as a Peetnik Molly has accomplished a TON! As a Certified Training Manager, she has trained more than 15 managers in San Francisco this past year alone! As a Berkeley native, Molly has supported 7 of our locations in our brand's birthplace. When you spend time with Molly, you are reminded of what makes Peet's such a special place to work...the people and the product. She is one of so many stories this year of internal promotions and we are just getting started!" Cheers to Molly!
