Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Olmsted Shows Appreciation to Its Waitstaff

Category: Senior Living

Author: Rocco Piscioneri, 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 – North Olmsted, I consider organization, patience, consistency, kindness, understanding, and sense of urgency to be the attributes of a great server. It’s important to have these dedicated and loyal team members because they are a key component of the culinary department, controlling the pace of service and setting the atmosphere of the dining room. Their direct contact with the residents is vital to a smooth dining experience.

I’m proud to work with Jessica, Anthony, Jenna, Delanie, Sophie, Logan, Sue, Kennedy, Liz, Andrew, Sue Jones, Zenobia, Selena, and Erin. We will be celebrating our servers with a party where our department heads will be serving them. This is one way I wanted to say thank you to my special crew! 
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.
