  • There's more to life than just a paycheck! It's a joy in my heart every time I'm able to bring smiles in the faces of my customers and co-workers. I take pride to have contributed to the successful business operations of this company especially as I help in supporting our new stores in different territories. Despite that I'm still completing my college education, this company gave me all the opportunities to realize my big dreams. I started as a store crew and earned my way up as Assistant Restaurant Manager through my consistent high performance. This company taught me to be a responsible and mature individual. They invested on me and sent me to regular training and development opportunities where it taught me to have a sense of ownership, accountability and to manage the business and its people as if running my very own business. I love our company values especially the value of Spirit of Family and Fun. It represents me best because it keeps my values intact - to go for higher values that money can't buy.
