Grand Opening/Open House Marks Shigiya Relocation
Spirits were high as Shigiya hosted a Grand Opening celebration and Open House at the new corporate headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois, on October 8-9. Company executives, employees and special guests turned out for the festivities. A highlight of the event was a Kagami Biraki ceremony. Kagami Biraki is a traditional ceremony performed at celebratory events in which wooden mallets break open the lid on a sake barrel. Sake is then served to everyone present as a gesture of harmony and good fortune.
