J Bar Recognized in the Fast 50

J Bar was blessed to be recognized at the Austin Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards Banquet on Thursday, October 20. The Fast 50 is a compilation of companies throughout Williamson, Travis, and Burnet Counties. Out of all the wonderful recipients of the award, J Bar Enterprises ranked 22nd on the list.

New Facility and Lines of Business

A major part of our 2022 was moving on to bigger and better things! We were happy to move into our new facility located at 2105 S Water Street, Burnet in April. Our staff now has more room to be productive, and our larger lot and shop allows our fleet to remain safe and maintained at a great location.

Colorado and Magnolia

New Luxury Trailers

J Bar was able to add two new luxury restroom trailers to our fleet: The Colorado and The Magnolia. Both trailers have a sleek interior design, and the Magnolia has the current title of J Bar’s Largest Luxury Trailer – complete with 8 stations (four stalls on the women’s side and two private stalls & two urinals on the Men’s side)

Employee Wellness Programs

Our Chief Wellness Officer Tanis Jamar has worked tirelessly to provide benefits for J Bar staff that exceed the standard benefits offered by companies to their staff. One program introduced to staff at the beginning of this year was the Dream Manager program, designed to assist individuals in not only achieving their goals and dreams, but learning more about themselves in the process.

More of our employee wellness program is described in this blog post and podcast episode.

Tanis Jamar

Overcomer Scholar Program

J Bar was blessed to be able to offer a scholarship to Burnet High School students this year!
The Overcomer Scholar Program was created to offer an opportunity for students who have overcome different obstacles that may have made academic achievements difficult.
Students were to submit a video describing the hardships and challenges they have faced throughout their childhood and high school careers, and the stories these two had stood out to our team.

More J Bar 2022 Achievements

Each year at our annual Christmas party, J Bar’s CEO and CWO David and Tanis Jamar share the past year’s achievements with the team (these stats are up to the first week of December).

This is always something our team looks forward to hearing, and we are happy to share those details with you!

These deliveries and services are a great increase from last year’s and we want to thank all of our customers and our community for playing a part in that. Our ability to grow and welcome new members of the team while we continue to serve our customers and advocate for your health and safety is made possible by you.

It is a pleasure to serve you, whether for a construction site or special event, and we are blessed to have you as part of our J Bar family!

Remember, whenever you are in need of a sanitary restroom or roll off dumpster for your construction site or special event, our team will be happy to provide those services and keep you, your staff, and your family safe and healthy.

Happy New Year from J Bar!
