Snow Pool

The past few winters New York has received little or no snow. Can this streak continue? This question is a source of raging debate here at Breakaway headquarters. We would like to invite our customers into this controversy by entering our third annual Snow Pool. To enter, call Account Manager Ralph Santoni, by December 31st, with your unique guess, in inches, of the amount of snowfall Central Park will receive by April 1st, 2003.  If your guess is correct you will win a beautiful Breakaway T-shirt. Note: at press time a major snowstorm was forecast for the New York area.

Phone Operator of the Year

Customer service is our top priority. Our phone operators are trained extensively in how to best meet our customers’ needs. Our operators are so helpful that callers often request specific operators by name. We would like to recognize these shining stars. Please contact Account Manager Ralph Santoni with the name of your favorite phone operator.

NFO Underwear

We recently delivered two boxes of dirty clothes and other personal items to Paris for one of our customers, using our NFO (next-flight-out) service. Breakaway can deliver just about anything just about anywhere.
