Meet the Woogi Crew

People are the most important thing in any business

Woogi... I was driving trans Canada in 2003.. A drive that took a while in my old Subaru named EMU. I came across a small town, May have been called Good Grief. 

At each end of this thumb sized town is a traffic light. I pulled up to the red light and didn't notice immediately, but to my right was the most regal Clydesdale horse! tall and grey flowing mane. Riding the horse there is a Canadian Indian.    

A top is a Canadian Indian. He looked a little like John Wayne, relaxed in his saddle. I got out of EMU and started a chat while taking a couple pics. 

 

Lester (The Indian) was talking about his journey around the world, his time mining oil sands in northern Canada and times catching crab on the open seas. 

After a long chat Lester parted but left me with some pearls of wisdom.. 

"No point spitting on a bush fire" " If you have a good horse you can go anywhere"

The horse's name was Woogi. 

Lester and Woogi.

Chigusa "Yakuza"

I'm joking she is actually a great girl!  Loves to drive at 2am to the kitchen, it’s her favourite time on the road because there are "no idiots driving" she says. If you stick your head through the kitchen window at Bon, Chi will be smiling back.

Dom "Tiny Dancer"

If I say his nickname enough eventually it will stick! Dom is actually a trained dancer - not the kind that gets $1 bills stuffed in his jocks- that’s why he works for Woogi.

Frank  "Woogi Too" "Boss"

Everybody loves Boss on Thursday payday and that’s pretty much it! Kidding!! He has the Woogi logo tattooed on him somewhere (Please don't ask where) which pretty much makes him the only committed one here. Currently trying to grow in his Barista Beard Boss and looking for a constant supply of beard dye to hide the greys.
