Growing up, I knew that to work hard was always going to be a goal of mine, no matter what the circumstances were. It’s just something that my parents taught me while i was young and I carried that through my very first job of scooping ice cream at age ten! I was blessed by two loving and supportive parents along with an older brother that would be with me every step of the way in whatever it was I decided to do with my career. But I can assure you, I never would have expected myself to be at the point I am in my life now if it wasn’t for bumps in the road, long hours through college, and family and friends to help me get to where I am right now. My story starts with ideas in my head that not a lot of people know about. That being said, I knew I wanted to work for myself in a way, and help others to the best of my ability. I give credit to two amazing companies that helped me fulfill those ideas. Chick-fil-A and of course, Maple Street. But I also give credit to my education that truly let me see how I wanted to spend my career. I found Maple Street by a very divine encounter with, Mr. Moore. I happened to serve him while at a previous job and tried to figure out where I knew him from. It turned out, I didn’t know him but he wanted to make sure I knew him. If you’ve every met Mr. Moore, you know he is the most genuine and sweetest man out there. He simply handed me his card and left it with a “if you ever need anything, please let me know”. And so here I am! My new journey began February 13, 2017 and I quickly was asked to take over one of their sweetest locations, which happens to be the original in mid April. I’ve never been so shocked and humbled all at one time, but I knew Maple Street believed in me to take on this new adventure! I always like to express to my guests that I knew a goal of mine was to run a restaurant and serve a community in some way, and I am truly doing that every day now. Maple Streets mission is to help people, serve others, and be a part of the community. With these three ideas in mind, I know how I need to lead my team on a daily basis, serve every guest in a very unique way that no other establishment could do, and be a part of my community in every way possible; from fundraisers to rehearsal dinners or just donating biscuits because we can! I look back on the day I met Mr. Moore pretty frequently and wonder what would be different in my life if we never met one another. I could be at an advertising firm, a non profit ,going to get my masters. But I quickly remind myself, because I met Mr. Moore, I am now a part of his story, a part of the Maple Street Biscuit Company’s story, but most importantly, I have my own story.
