Each year, Boak & Sons Inc., a residential and commercial exterior contracting company in Youngstown, Ohio, hosts their Annual Steak Fry. This event is held to thank customers, partners and employees for their hard work throughout the year. Last year, over 200 people from 50 different companies attended the event. Due to COVID-19, the company had to make adjustments to the guest list this year to ensure the safety of everyone attending. They were excited to host the Annual Steak Fry again, though much different from years past.

Each year, Boak & Sons Inc., a residential and commercial exterior contracting company in Youngstown, Ohio, hosts their Annual Steak Fry. This event is held to thank customers, partners and employees for their hard work throughout the year. Last year, over 200 people from 50 different companies attended the event. Due to COVID-19, the company had to make adjustments to the guest list this year to ensure the safety of everyone attending. They were excited to host the Annual Steak Fry again, though much different from years past.

Boak & Sons still held the Annual Steak Fry for their own employees only, allowing them enough room to safely come together. The warehouse was professionally cleaned and the employees set up socially-distanced tables. All attendees were also required to wear masks.

“We were obviously disappointed that we couldn’t invite everyone like we normally do this year, but safety is our top priority,” said Sam Boak. “We want to thank everyone who has supported us this year both partners and customers. We decided to still hold the Annual Steak Fry because it’s important to us to show our employees the appreciation they deserve for their hard work.”

As usual, steaks were supplied by Macali Catering, who has participated in the Annual Steak Fry for over three decades. The choice steaks are grilled right outside the Boak & Sons warehouse. The Steak Fry also included carnival style games with prizes.

“It was wonderful to get all of our employees together safely, and they deserve to have some time to unwind and have fun after all their hard work,” said Donna Boak. “We sincerely hope we can return to the normal Steak Fry next year and see all of our partners, friends and customers again.”
