AnnieMac Home Mortgage staged its own version of a backyard barbecue — call it a "breakroom barbecue" — on Friday afternoon.
From 12 to 3 p.m., the company's main headquarters in Mt. Laurel, N.J., held a Summer Celebration for employees. J-Dog Catering & Amusements set up in a room on the third floor, and served grilled chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers and ice cream — complete with table full of toppings and condiments so attendees could customize their meals to their tastes. And as temperatures hit 90 degrees outside, all dishes came with a side of air conditioning.
Judging by the response, the event went over well. A line formed outside the door before the designated start, and a steady stream of diners filed through for the next three hours.
"The choice of food was good and the ice cream bar was so much fun," said company receptionist Nancy Heidler. "Every comment I heard was positive."
