Salt & pepper, as needed
6 slices sweet coppa
1 cherry pepper with seeds, sliced

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first.
