RockSTAR June '16 - Fred Wilder | Spinato's Pizzeria

STAR stands for: Situation.Task.Action.Result!

The Spinato’s RockSTAR Award, implemented in March 2015, is an honor given to one restaurant manager each month that shows exemplary decision-making and leadership skills.

We select a manager who we believe has shown that he/she is able to confront a Situation or Task, take Action to handle the circumstances, and anticipate the impact (Result) of those actions taken. Our RockSTARs not only do what is expected of them, but go above and beyond when making decisions that affect not only themselves and the restaurant, but their employees and our valued guests.


We are happy to announce our June 2016 RockSTAR: Fred Wilder! Fred is currently General Manager at our North Phoenix location. He became a member of our family in 2008, and it was onward & upward from there!  Fred has been GM of our Scottsdale, Tempe, and North Phoenix locations.  His family with us grew when he met & married his wife Melissa. They have a 3-year-old daughter Elliot, who is the apple of Fred’s eye. His favorite thing to do outside of work is spend time with his girls – and watch baseball, the other love of his life! 🙂

Fred is a great leader to his team – they both respect and love him, affectionately calling him “Dad” around the store.  He is never without his manners, always saying “Thank you sir/miss” and greeting everyone with a handshake or a hug. We are so blessed to have Fred around, and hope he continues to stay with us for many many years.  Thanks so much for being such a RockSTAR, Fred!
