"If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane"-Jimmy Buffett
So, here's a little about me. I started as a bartender for an Applebee's franchise in 1995, I saw the Corporate Trainers and thought, "Hey! I could do that" I worked my way up through the trenches, eventually opening 70 Applebee's in around 25 states and 6 different countries before deciding to take a new career path. In January of this year, I got the awesome opportunity to become a Training Coordinator for Pinkberry, an up and coming frozen yogurt concept. I feel super lucky to be at the ground level of a company that is getting ready to EXPLODE throughout the nation. Contact me if you want to know anything else.

Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us.

Hey Captain Stewie! Long time no talk. This is such a cool site. So sorry to hear you are not with Applbee's anymore. I was hoping this aquisition would give us a chance to hang a bit in CA sometime.
