Last week, every member of the Corporate Floors team from our four Texas locations gathered together for our annual conference. The awards ceremony is always one of the most highly anticipated portions of the event when we recognize our company’s shining stars.
During the ceremony we awarded 19 associates – and had a great time at Grapevine’s Lancaster Theatre!
