happy figiversary!

We are so lucky to have such amazing employees, many of whom have been with us for several years.  It’s absolutely important to acknowledge everyone’s hard work from day to day, but we also love to acknowledge our employee’s anniversaries in celebration of the time they’ve spent to make the girl & the fig, the fig café and the girl & the fig CATERS! what they are today.

Here are the employees who we are celebrating anniversaries with in July:
