Winners of the 2023 Domingos Holdings Awards!

Just before Christmas and New Years, we had our Domingos Holdings Holiday Party! We hope all attendees had a great time – we sure did! At the holiday party, we had the opportunity to spotlight a few employees from all of our brands and thank them for all the hard work they do. Read on to see who won!

Rookie of The Year.

If a new employee has achieved a lot in a short amount of time, consider nominating them for the Rookie of the Year Award! Celebrating such skilled employees, regardless of the time they’ve spent at your company, shows you value them.

The Rising Star Award.

5-Star Service Award.

Providing excellent customer service can be challenging. Those who work with customers directly are the first people to handle complaints and often engage in difficult conversations when emotions are running high. Exceptional customer-facing employees not only uphold our brand reputation, but also act as product/service experts, making them ideal candidates for the 5-Star Service Award.

Driving Success Award.

The Driving Success Award recognizes employees who’ve achieved something remarkable in your organization – from being the driving force behind accomplishing a HUGE team rock, launching a new initiative/process or consistently hitting their sales targets.

The Innovator Award

It’s important to make a big deal out of your employees’ ideas, as it only takes one to set your business apart from the competition. Nominees of the Innovator Award should be employees who have come up with an idea (or several ideas) that have helped propel your business to new heights this year.


Dakota Roy and Lorraine Carboni, re:fab


Why Not A Scholarship?

Nominees are employees that:

  • are looking to continue their education, whether it is college, a trade school, training course, CSL license, etc.
  • are part of/support a local social enrichment, education or health initiative, and will donate these allocated funds to that organization

This employee also goes above and beyond to help others and is a role model for their peers. A bonus: if they help give back to their community through volunteering, fundraising bringing awareness to causes close to their hearts.


Eoin Gallagher, Fat Cousins. Eric Lebreault, re:fab. Jenna Matheson, DogTowne. Presented by Brooke Moura, Why Not A Pear.


Partner of the Year Award

Partner of the Year nominees are trusted vendors that support your business ventures/initiatives, have great customer-service, collaborate with you on projects/ideas and continue to find ways to work together for mutual benefit. As a result of your committed partnership, each of your businesses has had great success this year.

The Manny Award

If an employee has gone out of their way to help others and is always willing to give 110% at work, you can celebrate their can-do attitude with an above-and-beyond award, The Manny Award. Going the extra mile, while maintaining other commitments, isn’t easy and the employees who manage this should be celebrated.

The Domingos Award

Nominees of The Domingos Award are employees that serve not one, but many of the businesses within Domingos Holdings. They are individuals who may work outside of typical business hours and will be road warriors, to make sure our businesses are running smoothly.


Philip Lavra, and Cale Rymszewicz, re:fab. Presented by Jason Pinto, re:fab Living/ Domingos Holdings.

Congrats to all our winners and nominees! And, we’d like to extend an extra thank you to all employees for all your hard work!
