Orange you glad you're here?
Hi Everyone, my name is Joe and I'm proud to be the general manager of the Orange, contemporary brunch with appeal GM of our Riverwest location. I have an eclectic work background that has served me in this new role for me. I am loving the challenges it can take to provide excellent service and WOWmazing food to our guests. I've been a quick service food employee, a banker, and wire transfer technician, and then within the past 3 years a casual dining restaurant employee and now general manager of a restaurant! It's interesting to note that Orange instills a yeah I want to work here sort of feeling inside. I feel very comfortable with the idea of this sort of loyalty.
So yeah.. I look forward to exploring more of this community here!
