Care about the environment & the world around us, treat each other like family, offer a unique dining experience & make sure each & every guest feels important. By doing these things, we help not just others, but ourselves. Without doing all these things, we disappoint not just others, but ourselves.
BarFly isn't your typical restaurant/bar company. We recycle and compost up to 90 percent of the waste we generate. We provide health insurance to all of our full-time employees. We even do fun stuff like taking BarFly family members who work with us for four years on a big trip somewhere. We care deeply about the people we work with, the world we live in, the communities where we operate and, most importantly, the guests we get to serve each day.
Celebrating the beauty and spirit of northern Michigan in everything we make and do, Cherry Republic has grown from a T-shirt sold out of the trunk of a car to the world’s largest exclusive retailer of cherry food creations. Along the way, we have turned one man’s vision into a nation of citizens embracing his creed of life, liberty, beaches, and pie.
We try our best to exemplify the essence of Northern Michigan in our products, storefronts, writings and branding. A little piece of the woods, farms, lakes, and communities are in each product that we sell. We are proud to live, work and play in our favorite spot in all the world.
At Great Lakes GrowthWorks, we believe that we can enable a positive impact on the world by removing the lines between business and the community.

We bring a sense of empathy into understanding human motivations and needs, and what makes people happy and fulfilled. We then translate that into products, services, and messages that impart joy.
