PFR vs giving actual turkeys or hams

Advantages of our gift certificates vs giving actual turkeys or hams:

Companies who have used actual turkeys or hams as holiday employee gifts know what a worrisome bother this is… heavy items that must be kept refrigerated and that are so problematic to buy, store, and distribute. Our gift certificates solve these problems while still giving a gift that employees appreciate just as much, if not more. And often your cost is substantially lower. Compare these advantages:
