Assistant Account Manager Jordan Freitag has a dream. A dream of a breakfast sandwich maker. And so powerful is that dream that he wrote the following memo to bring the dream to fruition:
Date: July 9, 2014
Topic: The Decree of the Breakfast Sandwich Maker
The Decree of the Breakfast Sandwich Maker
Taco Bell. McDonald’s. Jimmy Dean. Karwoski & Courage? No, this is not some random accumulation of the most powerful companies in the world. This is a list of breakfast legends. Legends that have taken something we hold near and dear to our hearts and turned it into a lip-smacking, food-coma, hate yourself after and vow to run five miles later that night because you know what you just ate contains enough preservatives to mummify a small dog – an utterly American phenomenon.
Now it’s Karwoski & Courage’s turn to ignite the torch fueled by the grease from this morning’s bacon and run with it. With one simple payment of $24 +shipping, Karwoski & Courage has the opportunity to make the purchase of a Hamilton Beach 25475A Breakfast Sandwich Maker, and become the talk of the PR world for years.
But K&C has more to gain than just changing an entire industry like Taco Bell did with its waffle-taco-burrito contraption. It has the opportunity – neigh, the obligation – with one simple purchase, to help this office in a few key aspects:
- Camaraderie – Although the idea of bringing in a breakfast sandwich maker to the office started as an exclusive event between Brooke, Emily F., and Jordan; it quickly became the hot topic of the office, with opinions on the subject coming in from all corners. The consensus? This breakfast sandwich maker would become a focal point of the office, much like a keg at a frat party.
- Health and Wellness – This breakfast sandwich maker directly aligns with the objectives of the Health and Wellness committee. No longer would K&C employees need to bring artery-clogging, sugar rush-inducing Pop-Tarts to work. The warm aroma of fresh eggs, sausage and bagels, with a delicate layer of melted cheddar cheese, instead would greet them. Doesn’t that sound enticing?
- Productivity – Study after study has shown the importance of breakfast on workplace productivity. And if you’re anything like me, when you get hungry you get hangry like a mama bear whose cub has just been taken (ahem, Vanessa). K&C doesn’t want any angry bears running through the office, because that’s just a liability.
It might sound absurd that one simple and relatively inexpensive product could affect an office in so many ways, but that’s the case with the Hamilton Beach 25475A Breakfast Sandwich Maker. And if all of these reasons aren’t enough, just think about the joy your stomach will feel walking into work, knowing it’s about to be greeted by a little bun from heaven.
Life is all about the simple things – like delicious breakfast.

And just in case the memo was not enough, Jordan delivered it live, in person during a staff meeting:
Will Jordan’s dream come to pass? Or will the collective stomachs at Karwoski & Courage remain empty in the morning? Stay tuned to find out…
