Our Esko, Minnesota branch found a clever way to use propane tanks to brighten their customers’ days. Branch Manager Tara Johnson painted large propane tanks outside the branch to look like fishing bobbers and Jack-o’-lanterns a few months ago after finding the idea on Pinterest. She then turned to Service Technician Mat Danger for help with welding to turn several small propane cylinders into cow and pig planters for the building’s entrance.
Customers are loving the decorations. “Everyone thinks it’s very unique,” she said. “Everyone wants one of the piggy planters.” Despite increased demand, Tara said she doesn’t plan to make any more planters, saying they’d be so busy creating cows and pigs, they’d barely have time to sell propane.
