Team Bauknight
One big happy family in NE Georgia.

Known by the company as “Team Bauknight” – we like to call ourselves “BAF Shenanigans”.

It takes a lot of work to pull off a 12 county territory – servicing more than 300 schools and small businesses every 6 weeks – but we get the job done. (Even if it requires enlisting members of our own family to do it!)

And it IS a family atmosphere around here. It’s a labor of love, and we truly love what we do. We work hard, but we play hard too!

Feel free to find out more about “Team Bauknight” (Sorry – “BAF Shenanigans” ) below. The core of our family that gets the job done.
