You may have seen the videos circulating, but nothing compares to the real experience of watching street food made in front of you. Bubble Waffle Shoppes of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, specializes in production of Hong Kong Egg Waffles, as found on the streets of Hong Kong, creating cones out of waffles the shape of bubble wrap, often filled with ice cream and toppings. 

Owner Albert Yee says he knew these egg waffles could be a huge success in the U.S. After trying bubble waffles five years ago, he located a manufacturer of the waffle iron and purchased three immediately. “It wasn’t until recently, however, that I took them out of the box,” says Yee. Since developing the perfect recipe with a friend, Yee has been taking his creations to private events all over, including the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. 

“My favorite Bubble Waffle signature item is the Lemon Berry Tart Parfait,” says Yee. “We start with our signature Bubble Waffle and fill it with French vanilla ice cream. We top it off with a blend of mixed berries, use either crushed graham cracker or, my favorite, crushed Wild Berry Pop Tart, then top it off with blueberry compote and homemade lemon curd.” When Yee sets up shop at your event, you’ll watch the line form and wonder why you ever served anything but these delicious confections! 

When Minneapolis won the bid to host Super Bowl LII back in May 2014, the city and its people got to work. By the time the Eagles defeated the Patriots on Feb. 4, 2018, in front of a crowd of 67,612, more than 150 Super Bowl-related parties and events took place, 1,055,000 people attended the 10-day fan festival and 1.4 million people visited the Mall of America. The next day, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport waved good-bye to a record-breaking 61,000 visitors, and the people who worked tirelessly to pull off the event breathed a collective sigh of relief.

 

You don't have to spend a fortune on a corporate outing to make a big impact. Texas-based Small Giants Community founder Paul Spiegelman’s corporate picnic at the Lonesome Dove Ranch was so inspiring, he wrote an article about it for Inc.com. “Oftentimes, employee perks are the fi rst cuts to improve margins,” Spiegelman writes. “Don’t do it. Here’s why.”
