Sam started as a hostess, but she has since taken on multiple responsibilities around the restaurant. We’re so glad to have her with us, so we sat down to ask her a few questions to get to know her a little better!
Gables: Where did you grow up?
Sam: Landenberg, PA
Gables: Did you eat your veggies as a kid? Were you a picky eater growing up?
Sam: Yes I ate my veggies and almost everything in sight. I was not a picky eater, however, I could find chocolate anywhere I went. It was like I had a sixth sense for finding chocolate!
Gables: What’s your favorite food? Any food you just can’t stand?
Sam: Definitely pizza, I can’t stand mushrooms!
Gables: What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you at work?
Sam: Ann and I were cleaning out the bridal suite and getting it ready for the bride and groom and the bottle of champagne popped open and hit me right in the head!
Gables: How many cups of coffee do you have to drink in the morning before you feel ready to face the world?
Sam: At least two, but sometimes that isn’t even enough!
Gables: If you had a time machine, where would you go?
Sam: I would go to the 1940’s because I love the way everyone dressed and my family has stories from that time that are very interesting to me.
Gables: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Sam: To learn as many languages as possible. People who can speak more than one language amaze me.
Gables: How long have you worked in the hospitality industry?
Sam: A little over a year.
Gables: If you didn’t work in restaurants, what would you have chosen as a career and why?
Sam: I would have become a photographer. Photography is one of my passions and I have always wanted to have my own photography shop.
Gables: What chore do you hate doing?
Sam: The dishes! There is nothing that I hate more than when a piece of food touches my hand!
Gables: What did you do growing up that got you in trouble?
Sam: Definitely torturing my sister. I always wanted to play with her even when it was nap time and that never went over well.
Gables: What would your superhero name be?
Sam: Super Smiley Sam
