Hot Trends: Milios

Posted: Thursday, July 2, 2009 --- 4:29 a.m.

Your work environment may affect how you perform your job.

In this week's Hot Trends we'll show you a company that has taken that philosophy to create a beautiful work environment.

It looks and sounds more like a nature park...

Look around more and you see that *this is the corporate office of Milio's in Fitchburg, complete with a waterfall. And a huge fish tank.

"The employees are so important to us and the work environment actually enhances their performances - so we put together a building that truly I believe is very comfortable environment to be productive workers"

Most all of the offices have a view of this beautiful setting.

Just a few paces away, a conference room that would make even the Hard Rock Cafe jealous. Mike's personal collection spans 20 years and makes this feel *less like a conference room and more like a museum for rock and roll enthusiasts.

"It's just kind of fun to sit in here and talk about it with our guests that come in. and its really pretty special. "

Mike has severed Milio's sandwiches to the road crews and *that's how he's formed relationships *and built his collection over the years.

" BB King, Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Coco Montana. Those are some of the names on there. Susan even kissed this one right here. She's got her lips on it."

He says Harry Connick Junior was very kind, spending a lot of time with him. He also enjoyed hanging out and laughing with little Richard in his trailer. Little Richard almost didn't take the stage. Why?

" I can't go on this stage - he says there's flies. And when there's flies, I can't perform"

Upstairs, in the second conference room, he has his sports memorabilia collection.
