Kim Finch, Owner - Double Wide and Single Wide
If you’ve ever thrown back one of their Yoohoo Yeehaw cocktails under the shadow of a rotating prop tornado, you know the trashy appeal of these beloved Dallas watering holes.
How she got the job: Almost 11 years ago, I was working at Double Wide as my second job. One day it just closed with no notice, doors locked. I had a day job working for a designer, remodeling showrooms and houses so I wasn’t completely out of a job. But I ended up buying Double Wide the next day to keep it open, which is funny because I was trying to get out of the bar business at the time. But it was Double Wide! It reminded me of home state of Oklahoma. Then six years later, Single Wide was born.
The best part of the job: Coming up with new parties and events is always fun. Creating a space to see people smile, laugh and have a good time. Yeah, I’d say that’s a damn cool job. Our parking lot parties are quite unique. I think one of the first ones was an after-party for Warped Tour party that all the bands and crew came over for. That one was probably the craziest. People partying, doing very interesting and wacky things and that is an everyday occurrence here so the crazy stuff is now my normal.
Richard “Cash” Sirois, President - The Well Creative Productions
Do you get to make viral videos with one of the Top 10 highest scorers in NBA history whenever you want as part of your job? Because he does.
How he got the job: Man, I have no idea. Looking back I feel like I’ve been making all of this up as I went along. I was a sports reporter for years, which lead me into production at Fox Sports Southwest and then the position of Creative Director for the Mavs. There’s no amount of work ethic that can get you a gig with an NBA team two years before they win a championship. So, when it came time to create The Well, there wasn’t a whole lot of looking back.
The best part of the job: There are these moments, and we are lucky to have them all the time, that no words can describe. I'm nothing without the people I work with. Literally nothing. They are more talented than me, smarter than me, and obviously, better looking than me. Not to mention the fact that we’ve gotten to turn Dirk into a rapper, The Jerk, Donald Trump, The GEICO camel, Christopher Walken, and Batman over the last seven years. And we’ve sent his bobble head into space!
