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 Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Royalton, I consider a very personable disposition, and the ability to be organized and streamlined to be the attributes of a great server. It’s important to have these dedicated and loyal team members because our residents rely on good service and a smiling face. We are involved in an activity the residents participate in three times a day 365 days a year. And for some of them, our servers are the light in their life.
I’m proud to work with Aiden, Amelia, Dante, Deena, Lucas, Noelle, Jasmin, JuJu, Beth, and Maddie. We will be celebrating them with a card and a small gift. Thank you for all you do to provide a great dining experience for our valued residents, keep up the great work and always strive to be great!
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.
