Voodoo Brewing Rewards Employees by Granting Stock
Lots of exciting developments have been happening within the Voodoo Brewing Company camp over the past few months. Founder Matt Allyn decided to retire and focus on consulting, distribution of Voodoo’s beers has expanded into multiple states, and their brewpub in Homestead celebrated its first-year anniversary at the end of January and continues to draw swarms of rabid Voodoo fans seemingly every night of the week. Plus, the addition of a food truck parked directly in front of the pub with a rotating menu of pub fare always ensures you’ll get a fresh bite to eat whenever you visit.
With all the changes going into effect, one thing Voodoo sought to put in place was employee ownership. Now, that’s official! Voodoo employees and staff members will now own stock in the company, making Voodoo one of the smallest employee-owned businesses in the country.
