What is Founder’s Day?
The Marcus Corporation was founded by Ben Marcus on November 1, 1935 with the purchase of the first Marcus Theatre in Ripon, Wisconsin. Since then, the Marcus Corporation has become a leader in the entertainment and lodging industry, expanding to hotels, restaurants, and multiple theatres across the United States.
To honor this anniversary, The Marcus Corporation recognizes Founder’s Day every year, where corporate employees can work a partial shift at one of the Marcus hotels, theatres, or restaurants. This year on November 3rd, four Graydient Creatives decided to participate, and here’s what we learned on our day out in the field!
