Catch of the Week
From the Proprietor
Greetings!
I can’t believe another week has flown by so quickly.  I wanted to share with you a wonderful thing that happened this week.  I received a letter from a 5th grader at Village Elementary asking questions for their upcoming business fair.  I was so impressed with his letter. His “fifth question” was what I thought the qualities of a good business owner are.  As I have pondered his question; as I think there are many qualities and traits a business owner must have, some that are learned and some that are a gift to us.  I think one of the most important qualities is to understand and appreciate all of the people who help to make a business a success.  One of my favorite sayings is that we are only as strong as our weakest link. It is so important to build your people up.  I hope I have done that for all who work at Quality Seafood and that in doing so we have been a part of building you up too!
With gratitude for all of your support, it is appreciated.
