VISIBLE IN EVERY KITCHEN
Each account is provided back of the house signs and banners to reinforce our commitment to strong values in life and the workplace.
Our servers wear on their uniforms core value buttons so that customers are aware of the program and the messages instilled in all of us.
“Since we launched the core values program, everyone has been more aware of how to treat both co-workers and customers with respect and consideration. I believe this makes a better workplace atmosphere for everyone.”
