Heart of Hospitality: Coffee Break

As the busy season begins to wind down after another record-breaking year, Visit Cook County wants to champion those who continue to be the “heart of hospitality” in the community by offering a free cup of coffee for Cook County hospitality industry workers September 12-17, 2021.

Who is eligible? Front and back of house staff that work in hospitality based industries like dining, retail, lodging and activities. A short list includes servers, bartenders, housekeepers, receptionists, cooks, clerks, guides, managers and so much more.

Where? Java Moose in Grand Marais (hours: 7am – 3pm Friday – Wednesday, Closed Thursday) and Fika Coffee in Lutsen (hours: 7am – 12pm Thursday – Monday, Closed Tuesday & Wednesday) are prepared to offer complimentary coffee beverages to hospitality workers. One coffee/drink per location.

This event is part of a greater program initiated by Visit Cook County titled the “Heart of Hospitality” to celebrate the workers in the hospitality industry. Launched in 2019, local business owners and managers are asked to nominate employees who they believe exemplify hospitality excellence. An award is given to an employee from each tourism district. Nominations for this year’s “Heart of Hospitality” awards are open. Deadline for 2021 nominations is October 4, 2021.  To learn more about the award or to nominate an individual, please click here. Winners are announced in late October.
