It takes a plethora of people to accomplish the many tasks around a busy establishment like Metz Maryville. There is no one person more important than another here. A place like this cannot run without every worker here. On this Food Service Worker Day, we at Metz Maryville would like to celebrate all our wonderful workers who keep this place in proper shape.
We would like to show appreciation for our workers in the dish room, like Ken and Sophie, who keep service running smoothly and consistently by keeping our dishes clean. We appreciate our student workers, like Shelby and Ralph, who dedicate time in their busy schedules to assist us here at Metz. We appreciate our lovely workers in the front of the house at the greeter’s stand, Ms. Daisy and Ms. Debbie, for always putting on a smile and making our guests feel welcome in our establishment.
We also thank all our lovely food service workers, from those in the back of the house to those who interact with our guests daily. Thanks to our chefs, Geoff and Steve, who consistently produce quality food that keeps guests coming back. Thanks to our caterers, Melissa and Kim, for getting our name out there in the community and bringing in new, happy guests. Thanks to the many servers across our extensive buffet, such as our servers, Delores and Mila, our deli workers, Emily and Eduardo, our pizza professionals; TK, Marisa, and Tyler, and our grill & exhibition culinary professionals; Ezra, Melinda, and Manny. Finally, we appreciate our staff, Tyler and Maddie, who work to keep the lobby looking clean and professional to give off a great first impression to first-time guests and to keep them coming back for more.
This is by no means all our staff here at Metz, but it is tough to narrow down and choose just one when all of the staff here at Metz Maryville are necessary to keep our kitchen running smoothly. We make it known to our staff that their positions are just important as the next employee’s. We celebrate our lovely food-service workers year-round, not just on Food Service Worker Day. These are the folks that keep our dining hall moving like a busy village.
