Imagine a workplace to which everyone chooses to bring energy, passion and a positive attitude each day. An environment in which people are truly connected to their work, to their colleagues, and to their customers. Impossible? Not at all. Since 1986, Pike Place Fish has been engaged in a process with their long-time business coaches from Jim Bergquist's company, bizFutures, which has helped lead this organization toward creating that very environment.

When Seattle's Pike Place Fish set out on a journey to become "world famous," they partnered with Jim Bergquist. Since then, Jim's company has been working very closely with John and the other Pike Place Fish employees to affect change in the environment.

Over the years humble little Pike Place Fish became "World Famous" Pike Place Fish, a dynamic, fast-paced retail fish market that's fun for both customers and employees. The antics of the fish-flinging staff have become the highlight of Pike Place Market.

They have been featured in Spike Lee's Levi commercial, on NBC's "Frasier," MTV's "Real World," and ABC's "Good Morning America." The "low-flying fish" have been captured on film and immortalized in print by filmmakers and journalists from all over the world.

In 1996, two award-winning corporate training films, Fish and Fish Sticks were produced. These two videos document the amazing culture of Pike Place Fish and have become the best selling corporate training videos in the world.

In a CNN Special Report on January 26, 2001, CNN identified the three most fun places to work in the United States. World Famous Pike Place Fish came in #1!

World famous INDEED!
