You’ve volunteered (or you’ve been volunteered) to be the committee to plan this year’s holiday party! YAY! Okay, now what? Well, ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca offers some simple, money-saving tips for putting on memorable and meaningful festivities for your company. No matter the occasion, there are some common things to think about when planning your party: food and beverage choices, set-up/take-down, entertainment options, where to hold the party, and cleaning services, just to name a few. Let’s get right to it!

Where’s the Party? – Venue Variables

A recent holiday party survey by BIZBASH showed that 30% of companies host their holiday parties at the office. There are multiple reasons that this can be a great venue choice:

  • Everyone already knows how to get there
  • Easy on the budget
  • Supplies, facilities, and resources are easily accessible
  • Will accommodate the appropriate number of guests

Also, it may be neat to do something at your facility besides just work, work, work.

However, sometimes you just need a change of scenery—especially when celebrating with your co-workers. If you decide to hold the party off-site, you’re in good company:

  • 25%- Local meeting center/conference facility
  • 38%- A popular local hangout, bar, or restaurant
  • 7%- The boss’s (or another staff person’s) house

The number of guests and available budget will ultimately dictate where you decide to hold the event. Check several local event venues for pricing and availability. Many establishments offer bundled packages which offer one affordable price for catering, beverages, and space rental.  

To Clean or Not to Clean? – Hiring Cleaning Services

Here’s an Idea:  Whether you decide to hold the party at your facility or at another space, think about hiring a company that provides event cleaning services in Mankato and Waseca to clean and prepare the facility before and after the party. A company that knows the ins and outs of event cleaning services as well as set-up and take-down is like a party planner’s dream come true. It’s like having your very own right-hand man/woman. They take a huge portion of the work off of the plate of the party planner who is already incredibly busy (and maybe even stressed).  “So many companies have figured out that this is a budget-friendly, hassle-free solution,” says Ivan DenOuden, owner of ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca. “We come in and handle the facility set up and take down, cleaning services, remove garbage, carpet cleaning…whatever the customer needs from us, and it is a lot less expensive than people expect.”

Whether you decide to hold your holiday party at your office or somewhere else, just be sure to take a few moments to reflect a little, take a few deep breaths, enjoy the celebration, and enjoy the people that you are celebrating with. Overall, most of us can say it’s been a good year.

ServiceMaster to Honor First Responders at NASCAR’s ServiceMaster 200 in Phoenix

PIR ServiceMaster Clean 200 Logo 6Every fan of NASCAR has heard of the Daytona 500 or the Coca-Cola 600. But have you heard of the ServiceMaster 200? In August of this year ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore proudly announced that they will be the title sponsor of the ServiceMaster 200, the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) on Saturday Nov. 9.

During the opening ceremonies of the event, ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore will honor first responders by donating $10,000 to both Prescott Firefighter’s Charities and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The donations will directly benefit the families of the 19 heroic Prescott firefighters that died on June 30 fighting the blaze near Yarnell, Arizona. ServiceMaster will also be hosting the family members and fellow firefighters of the fallen heroes as guests at the ServiceMaster 200.

With more than 60 years of providing disaster restoration to homes and businesses throughout the United States, ServiceMaster often works closely with first responders and wants to recognize the work and sacrifices of these public servants. President of ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore Tom Coba said, “ServiceMaster has an immense amount of respect and appreciation for first responders nationwide who are willing to risk their lives and sacrifice so much for our nation’s safety. The ServiceMaster 200 will serve as a unique opportunity for ServiceMaster Clean and Restore to recognize and honor the men and women that our team works with closely week in and week out to restore peace of mind during disaster situations.”

Since 2009, ServiceMaster has been the official sponsor of the yellow flag caution period for International Speedway Corporation (ISC) and PIR. Track personnel and the track-drying equipment display the ServiceMaster Clean brand and during NASCAR races they can be seen cleaning the race track, removing debris, and drying the track quickly and professionally to quickly get back to racing action.

For more information on the race, visit the NASCAR Nationwide Series website. Tune in to the ServiceMaster 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at 4:00 PM, Saturday Nov. 9 on your local ESPN 2 channel.
