Saginaw Restaurant Owner Thanks His Loyal Staff With Free Tropical Getaway

The owner of a restaurant in Saginaw County takes nearly half of her staff on a trip to Puerto Rico to show her appreciation, as labor shortages remain a major concern for the majority of businesses in the State.

At Coty’s Landing in Saginaw, where beer-battered cod is a customer favorite, owner Theresa Miller gave nearly 20 of her longest-serving employees the gift of a tropical getaway to look forward to in January, by a message to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

“Most of these hard working people have been with me for over three years and some for over five,” Miller wrote. “I couldn’t ask for a more dedicated group.”

Miller told MLive that the idea for the trip came to him while on vacation. She considers it “a little extra thank you” for the dedication and service of the staff over the years. “They were pretty happy. Some of them cried,” Miller told MLive.

A group of 18 are going on the trip, which will include an Airbnb, a rainforest excursion and a Michigan winter escape, according to an MLive report.

During the planned trip, Coty’s Landing will be closed Jan. 7-14, to reopen Jan. 15, according to the Facebook post. Miller wrote that she wished she could take more of her staff, but those who cannot attend will receive full pay while the restaurant is closed.

“We will be closed during this time because we will be in Puerto Rico,” Coty’s Landing’s winter and vacation closures read. “I am giving 18 of my loyal employees a well-deserved beach vacation. I am lucky, blessed and very grateful to have such a fantastic, loyal and hardworking staff. Coty’s Landing has been through the last two years of uncertainty. because of these great people and I think we are stronger now than we have ever been. I cannot thank you enough for being by my side yesterday, today and tomorrow. I hope that Puerto Rico is ready for us! ”
