March 2017 Kansas City, KS
“I enjoyed learning how to cook. I also appreciate how to deal with a high stress environment. I also liked the opportunity to work in a team with people that have very different cultural backgrounds.”

“Our restaurant employees are like a big family. We had a few tragedies in the lives of a few employees this past year and each time everyone pulled together to help that person out. The managerial staff genuinely cares about the well-being of their employees. We all help one another out on and off the job.”
