Definition of service

We work diligently to give our guests the most enjoyable experience possible. We refer to those who visit Thanksgiving Point as “guests” not as customers and treat them with genuine kindness, stellar service, and memorable interactions.

Questions to discuss as a team

  • Why is service one of our values? 
  • How does genuine kindness differ from regular kindness? 
  • What does your team do to contribute to helping our guests feel welcome?

Team activity idea

Share a memorable interaction that you saw or were a part of the exemplified stellar service.  Discuss the reasons it stands apart from others you have experienced.
