Hello from Ziyak!
The team is huddled up inside while the rain pours outside. Randy is making fun of Evan's "large head" while Josh makes some phone calls to local businesses and music beats throughout the building. This is the life. The only thing that would make it better is if the coffee were from Friendly Bean instead of the Folgers container in the back. I'm not dissing the best part of waking up, I just have preferences.
The office has quickly become one of my favorite places. From the front glass wall, to the white pleather chairs, to our very own incredible island (a giant, hand-poured, concrete desk in the front of the building), everything about this place is motivational but thrilling. My two absolute favorite features of this office are the Chewbacca painting above our printer (Thanks to Imagine That Kansas City), and the pallet wall that is viewable from the parking lot.
The pallet wall was quite the endeavor. We could have easily hired someone to build the pallet wall for us, we could have even hired someone to pick up and bring the 57 pallets involved in the making to our office. But Evan and Randy have made it a goal to step out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves. From creating Ziyak, to running a triathlon, to creating an eye-catching wall, the "easy route" has never been an option. Many splinters were involved in the making of the pallet wall.
At Ziyak, we are excited to help connect people to cities all over the country. From finding the best places to eat, to exploring the best events in town, for the old in spirit and young at heart, Ziyak is for everyone.
