Not many places offer ownership, but we are not like other places. At Thorntons, we believe owners make better Team Members. That’s why, after one year, all Thorntons Team Members are eligible to become an owner through our ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Every year, Thorntons will donate a percentage of Thorntons’ stock to you. The longer you stay, the more you’ll get. And the better everyone performs, the more your stock will be worth.
