Father’s Day Reflections

It’s been a little while since I last shared some of my personal thoughts with you all. We have had many exciting things happen within our company over the course of this year! We began a wave of new store openings in our home state of Ohio, and we acquired several new cafes in Tennessee! We just keep growing! These are the things that make me really excited for the future of our company.

Speaking of future… I have even more to look forward to this year with the expected birth of my very first grandchild. My wife Caryn and I cannot contain our excitement nor can we wait to shower our future grandson with so much love and attention!

fathers-day-2-500This past Sunday was Father’s Day, and I couldn’t help but think of my own father and all the wisdom, energy, and passion he put forth in all aspects of his life. He was such an incredible businessman that I was fortunate enough to learn from. He was even more incredible a father, husband, and grandfather to our entire family. With his dedication and commitment to others, he was not only the foundation of Covelli Enterprises while he was alive, he was the foundation of our family.

That’s the kind of man I strive to be day-in and day-out to make him proud and honor his legacy. That’s the kind of people my wife and I have raised our children to be. I am eager to watch my son holding his very own son in his arms in just a few short months. What a special moment that will be.

So, while I use Father’s Day as an excuse to look back, reminisce, and even long for the past – just another moment to spend with my dad – I also use it as a reminder of all the exciting things to come. Our family, both on the business side of things and on the personal side, continues to grow in ways I think my dad could have only dreamed of.

God bless all the dedicated fathers and grandfathers out there. Happy Father’s Day to all!

    As I read your post, I was reminded of the blessings in my life. Like you, I too am expecting a grand baby this year. It will be our seventh. I have had the pleasure of meeting your son and I am sure he will be an amazing father. You see, my daughter is one of your assistant managers at your Austin Landing Store and through her I have met your son. I am so proud of all she has accomplished and will achieve as she continues to excel in your organization. As I talk to her and
    here her talk about your company and what you believe in I am so thankful she was hired by your company. As a retired Master Sergeant from the United States Air Force, I understand the value of discipline and so does Nicole and your company structure fits her so well. I am also very thankful for the way you give back to the community. I wish the best and hope you have many years of joy with your Grandson..O H
