Letters: A very positive business

Business owner is commended for his approach with employees

Kudos to your recent article on David Evans of The Stick.

A well deserved mention for one of Sooke’s finest entrepreneurs, of which there are many. He’s built his business slowly and in the right way, by listening to his customers, providing what they seek, letting his business expand in response to demand and all the time instilling a sense of joy and pleasure, all centered around a cup of java.

He treats his employees well and gives them a chance to grow in their confidence with both customers and product. He’s taken a very risky location and made it work. I am sure he feels he has a long way to go yet, but I and many others are sure he and The Stick will continue on a very positive journey, tucked away as a hidden gem in a hidden gem of a town. Congrats to David and his staff.
