I recently met Jason Levin at a dinner with David Allen of “Getting Things Done” fame. Jason is the founder and CEO of Dos Gringos, Inc. Jason is gregarious and affable and his company Dos Gringos is a fantastic success story. They also happen to be the largest supplier of sunflowers in the country. The sunflower happens to be Tara’s favorite flower. I shared this with Jason and he suggested that we should tour his facility in Vista, CA. Tara’s birthday was this last Friday and with Jason’s help I organized a birthday surprise for Tara. A tour of Dos Gringos!
It was so cool! The people were all incredibly friendly. The facility was amazing. They can cut 125,000 sunflowers a day. Also, at full production speed they can make 6,000 bouquets an hour!
Posted throughout the facility is the Dos Gringos mission and vision statements. I really liked this.
While we were touring the facility Susie, the Dos Gringos Special Projects Lead, was filling our car with gorgeous arrangements. It was amazing!
Thank you Jason, Joan, Susie and all of Dos Gringos for the wonderful and memorable birthday surprise. You’re all awesome.
