May 21st is National Waitstaff Appreciation Day. The difference between an okay dining experience and one that is truly remarkable lies in the hands of your waiter or waitress. They are the unsung heroes in our restaurants, and without them, we wouldn’t be able to operate at the level you’ve come to expect.
National Waitstaff Appreciation Day was created by Fred Sirieix. He wanted to celebrate all waitstaff, from those in the finest restaurants to the ones in the least exotic locations. Sirieix’s goal was to change the perception of waitstaff as being unskilled and show them as hardworking people they are, doing skilled work that can lead to a rewarding career. It was proposed by Sirieix in 2012 and was first celebrated in 2013.
As the Culinary Director at The Parkway Senior Living, I consider attentiveness, patience, and the ability to multitask to be the attributes of a great server. It’s important to have these dedicated and loyal team members because they are the first ones the residents encounter when they come to the restaurant to eat, setting the tone for a great dining experience.
I’m proud to work with Alaina, Ashleigh, Emma, Kim, Kenzie, Liz, Mary, Rosa, Janiya, Jadelyn, Bryleigh, Audrey, Perry, Elainie, Karlee, Micheal, Briana, and Heaven. We will be celebrating them with a party on Friday during Happy Hour with the residents, and again on Sunday.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart to my waitstaff. Your dedication and loyalty are unmatched. You are the best part of our resident experience.
This year, as we all settle in for a fantastic meal, let’s take a moment to recognize the hardworking men and women that make up Arrow’s waitstaff. Their smiles and personalities help make our days a little brighter and the meals taste a little better. Thank you to them all.
