Brian Pruitt is Co-Founder and CEO of Night In Boxes. Pruitt comes from a background in Athletics where he most recently coached and scouted in the St. Louis Cardinals’ organization. After founding Date Night In along side his wife and Co-CEO Megan Pruitt, Brian quickly left his job with the Redbirds to pursue NIB on a full time basis. Since inception Night In Boxes has expanded its brands to include Kids Night In and Kids Snack Club as well as a Faith based option.
Pruitt moved to Aiken, S.C. while still working for the Cardinals. However, after leaving his job to pursue NIB full-time, he knew that he wasn’t going to leave his new found home anytime soon, “Aiken has felt like home to me for a while, its a different pace than what I was accustomed to while growing up in Miami, but Aiken offers us everything that we could need to raise our kids and grow the business. While the cost of living is lower in comparison to other places in the country we can also pull talented individuals from the local College’s as we continue to grow the business.” Pruitt credits his coaching background for his management skills in the business world. “I’ve found it important to keep a happy and positive team atmosphere in the workplace and its necessary for quality production to make sure everybody is pulling on the rope in the same direction”, Brian said.
“We are growing at a fast rate and are constantly looking for new hires and quality people to join our team. We treat everybody with respect and dignity around here, I have found that employees will always respond best when you treat them fairly and are honest with them. I believe we do a great job of that here at NIB. Our employees are our top priority and that’s why we have a top notch retention rate. We are constantly reinvesting in our team, which has in-turn rewarded the business with quality internal promotions.”
