Every small business owner knows that the key to great production is great people. As our business has evolved and improved, the demand for new staff has become evident. Let me introduce you to one of our new chefs.
Allison comes to us from Augusta, ME, which is, not quite, but just about as far away from Nebraska as you can get and still be in the US. The connection is not entirely random, however. I hired her two years ago while she was living in Lincoln, but circumstances required her to move back to Maine. We stayed in touch via Facebook and I kept her on the payroll, with the hope that if she ever did move back here, I might have a spot open. Funny how things like that work out.
I told her the first day that her job description was to “dispel the myth that there is no place to eat breakfast in downtown Lincoln.” Judging from dozens of eggs she blew through last Saturday, I would say she is well on her way to achieving that goal.
The line from the movie has become cliche, but I do believe the first hurdle is to build it, and then they will come. Marketing is worthless without a dynamic product. Give careful attention to what you intend to sell, and the sales will follow suit. Below is an example of her work.
