Vitalia Active Adult Community – Solon Shows Appreciation to Its Waitstaff

Category: Senior Living

Author: Jacqueline Romito, Culinary Director

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 – Solon, I consider sense of urgency, reliability, and a positive outlook to be the attributes of a great server. It’s important to have these dedicated and loyal team members, because a great, reliable server takes a lot of stress off the team by helping to keep the residents happy.

I’m proud to work with Carla, Doug, Greg, Pat, Kiree, Diane, and Jeff. I will be celebrating National Waitstaff Appreciation Day with them by presenting a gift that day, in appreciation for their hard work. Thank you to all my servers for showing up every day and helping put a smile on residents’ faces!

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.
