Customer Case Study: Craft & Crew Hospitality

Craft and Crew Case Study Featured Image-1
In an industry where health benefits aren’t typically offered, Gravie makes it easy and affordable.

Craft & Crew Hospitality has been partnering with Gravie for employee health benefits since 2015. The Twin Cities-based group runs five restaurants, a food truck, and consists of a whole lot of passionate employees.

Before Gravie, Craft & Crew didn’t have a clear system in place for providing their 113 employees health insurance. They tried a stipend approach, but it became difficult to administer and track. Partnering with Gravie alleviated a lot of the administrative burden and compliance concerns, and saved the company money. Craft & Crew’s Director of Operations, Luke Derheim, couldn’t be happier. “Gravie has definitely made our lives easier,” Luke said.

In addition to streamlining their employee benefits process and saving the business time and money, Craft & Crew’s partnership with Gravie has made it possible to provide employees access to better, more affordable health insurance. Offering health benefits in the restaurant industry is a rare occurrence—one that can help recruit and retain employees and promote a healthier work-life balance. Plus, fundamentally, Craft & Crew believes, “It’s the right thing to do.” “We’re so thankful to have a partner that really values our employees just as much as we do,” Derheim said.

Partnering with Gravie has helped Craft & Crew:

  • Streamline employee benefits, saving time and reducing administrative hassle
  • Stick to a benefits budget and save money
  • Offer a benefits package that supports recruitment and retention in an industry with high turnover.
