Feeling Appreciated in Big Rapids, MI

Real Estate Agent with Lake and Lodge Realty LLC

Feeling Appreciated in Big Rapids, MI was easy today. A few months ago Blarney Castle opened a Marathon Gas/ EZMart here in Big Rapids, MI. Today they once again showed their appreciation to their customers by free lunch including Bill and Will's gourmet hot dogs, pizza and sodas. A lot of companies do the appreciation gig but what made it special for me is the guy manning the grill was none other than Bill McCarthy, son of Denny McCarthy, who at 93 still runs the show. Knowing that even with a dozen locations to worry about he came here and served lunch with a smile speaks volumes about the mindset of the company. First time i have ever actually felt appreciated at one of these events. They bounce around all summer from one location to another spreading the love. If you want to learn more about Blarney Castle try going to their website: Blarney Castle Oil Co. Best of luck in all you do and thanks for reading.

Hi Randy,

I liked it when Blarney Castle would open new places. I would stop by for the free food. LOL

They are all over the place where we lived in the Manistee and FreeSoil areas.

Have a really good weekend my friend.

Best, Clint McKie

Hi Randy, any places have free stuff will attract attendees. It looks quite crowded.

I'm sure that 93 year old gets a lot of joy by still "running the show." That helps keep him young, no doubt. Glad you felt appreciated at this very nice event for customers.
