Adalen Applewhite

North Phoenix Location

This is the one and only Addy! She has been a member of the Spinato’s family for over a year now, but it feels like she’s been with us forever. You might have talked to her on the phone placing a delivery order or seen her smiling face as you walked in for a pick up. She attends Metro Arts High School where she loves to do anything with art. After she’s done with school she would like to travel and see the world. In her spare time, she loves reading and spending time with her family. Addy’s favorite part about working at Spinato’s is the family atmosphere and helping our guests, which shows because she has a caring nature toward every person she meets.

Great job Addy!

Central Phoenix Spinato’s would like to congratulate Ernest Sanchez as our heart of house employee of the month. This is the second time that Ernest has won this award and deserves it. He has been a part of our family since July of 2016. We honestly never know where we will see him in the kitchen because he will help in every position in the kitchen. He shows commitment to excellence in every dish he creates for our guests. We can always count on Ernest to come in with such an amazing and friendly attitude. In his personal time, he loves spending time with his family and skateboarding. We truly appreciate all his hard work and dedication he displays every day.

Thanks Ernest again for your hard work – we truly appreciate you!

Kassandra Connelly

Kassie has been with the company for a little over a year now and joined our Scottsdale family a few months ago.  She is such an amazing part of our family with a contagious energy and work ethic that makes us all want to work harder.   Her love of animals is obvious and her new dog, Thor, helps fill what little free time she has.  She is going to school for Actuarial Science and volunteers with numerous organizations to make a difference in her community.  Kassie truly does her best to enhance the lives of others every day. We appreciate all she does and are so blessed to have her part of our team!

Thanks, Kassie!

Kenya Coburn

Ahwatukee Location (Front of the House)

This month’s FOH EOM is Kenya Coburn! Kenya is one of our GSR’s and has been with us just over 2 months now. Her older sister also who also works here brought Kenya in and she has been an absolute star since day one. Kenya is in her junior year of high school and will soon be taking some time off for track season, but while she’s here we’re going to make sure she gets all the recognition she deserves! Not only is Kenya extremely smart and a quick learner, but she lives our playbook every day by being a bright positive energy around the store and even showed her commitment to community recently by volunteering for our “Feed the Hungry” event. Her warm smile and friendly demeanor always make our guests feel like family and we hope she’s around for the long haul.

Thank you, Kenya!

Thank you, Ben, for your excellent work ethic, positive attitude and dedication.
