Last week, WAKA awarded its first franchise to New Orleans native Sean Gaubert. Sean is a longtime WAKA Kickball player and had been working part-time for WAKA as a Customer Service Representative in New Orleans.

"I am honored to be the first WAKA Kickball franchise owner,” said Gaubert. “I chose to pursue a WAKA franchise because this is an endeavor I am truly passionate about. Being able to dedicate my full time to growing WAKA Kickball in my community will give even more people in New Orleans an opportunity to experience this great, social game and to have access to the best possible customer service out there."

David Lowry, a WAKA co-founder, had a great experience working with a Zappos employee to exchange some shoes. Jen G., a member of the Zappos Customer Loyalty Team, took care of everything to the point that David was blown away by the experience. (Anyone familiar with Zappos’ reputation for great customer service probably knows all about this.) David took the Zappos tour during a recent visit to Las Vegas (Hey! That's the home of the World Kickball Championship® Weekend!) and was able to stop by Jen's desk to say thanks in person.

We hear stories all the time about the scene at the WAKA league bars after games. We get pictures from some of you of great crowds that turnout. Some league bars even promote WAKA nights to their other patrons because WAKA players turn their bar into such a good time.

Brendan Kelly, owner of the original WAKA league bar, Kelly's Irish Times in Washington, D.C., recently told us, “Working with WAKA Kickball is one of the best business decisions we have made in our 30 years in business.” We love hearing that!
