Buddy Wilcox runs a tight ship at Cici’s Pizza in Beaumont. The very busy owner/manager should know the ropes from his more than 10 years working for the company in the Dallas area. He has honed his skills to perfection in the five years he has owned the franchise in Beaumont.

Wilcox is a hands-on manager, busily handling the buffet line, helping answer customer questions, checking on hot pizzas coming out of the kitchen, and taking special orders for various combinations of toppings.

Working really hard and giving your best effort in an attempt to carry out a plan or to meet a goal for someone else can end in negative feelings when the other person doesn’t seem to understand or value our contribution. We are disappointed. There are times when we honestly feel we have followed the orders or instructions we were given only to have them change in midstream. We wanted the person or people to see it our way or to at least give verbal acknowledgement to the fact that we tried.
