Products that come from the heart — literally
The cantonese word for “heart” is “sum”, which is why the organization felt it was an appropriate name given the love and attention they put into their products. Originally founded in 1986, Summ! specializes in hand-rolled spring rolls, potstickers, wontons, and more. Over the years they’ve grown to over 4 locations and their products are in stores across North America. With continued growth in the last 6 months, Summ! has been able to depend on GigHound to support their ever-changing needs.
After seeing exponential growth over the last year, Summ! was in need of extra-help — both temporary and full-time — often times with very little notice. To date, they had been using multiple labor providers with unpredictable results, experiencing poor communication and availability.
Summ! was looking for flexibility in their staffing and needed on-demand workers that were available for part-time and full-time work to, as their manager put it, “accomodate our everganging schedules and fluctuating headcount requirements”.
Additionally, they were looking a better customer experience with their labour provider.
The team at GigHound was able to provide Summ! with a steady stream of workers and the company was successful in hring on three employees full-time within their first week, without additional overhead costs or conversion fees. On top of that, they have not needed to engage other labour providers.
“GigHound has been instrumental in providing employees to fulfill our staffing gaps with very little notice. The team is extremely fast, patient and agile, with the ability to accomodate our everchanging schedules and fluctuating headcount requirements. The employees they have sent over to us are hard-working, eager to learn and adaptable to change.
We have not had the need to shop around and engage with any other temporary labor providers as we value our partnership with the team at GigHound.”
