Family Members of the Month

Our team members are more than just employees - they’re family. And to show just a little appreciation for them, we like to recognize a different individual from each location every month. And we never call them employees. Always family members. So without further ado, a drumroll please for this month’s Family Members!!!

The Ahwatukee location Family Member of the Month is Steven Williams in the Heart of House. Steven has been with the family for 8 years and has done every position in the kitchen, including manager! He helped open our Ahwatukee location as “Sugar Steve” - the sole dessert chef. Since then he has made big moves working his way up at all our locations and has recently been at our Central Phoenix location for the last 3 years. Steven is one of the happiest, most positive people we’ve ever met and even on our most stressful nights keeps spirits high with his infectious laugh and dope dance moves. When he’s not at work you can probably find him at almost any Relentless Beats festival around Phoenix or watching sports at his favorite local dive bars. Our kitchen would not be the same without you Steven, we love you!

Spinato's in North Scottsdale would like to congratulate Kassie Connelly as our Family Member of the Month. She has been a part of our family for over 2 years. She has a wonderful spirit and embraces our culture with dedication and commitment to excellence. With a drive to always do more and move up in the company, her talents in our restaurant are priceless. Some days you will see her in the kitchen and then she will be serving you at your tables. Recently, she moved up into her new supervisor roll! Kassie loves to spend time with her family and her pets outside of work. The next time you have the pleasure to see her, please congratulate her! Great job, Kassie!

Our Central Phoenix location congratulates Andrea Guerra as our Family Member of the Month! She's always been amazing at taking care of our guests or handling a full section with grace and a smile. Excitingly, she's been learning how to bartend, too! Come in soon to watch her pour a perfect pint or order a Manhattan to test her skills and give her a high-five for her achievement!

Our Family Member of the Month for our North Phoenix location is Andrew Dorsey. He is a great asset to the North Phoenix team! Andrew Dorsey has been a family member since December of 2015, and he will be joining the Heart of House lead team this summer. Andrew enjoys playing pool and video games in his spare time. Thanks, Dorsey for all your hard work and dedication!

Store 5 is pleased to announce Bert Rubio as our Family Member of the Month! Bert has worked for Spinato's for 5 years and recently became a full-time employee. He loves working with his family members, making guests smile, and giving the Spinato's experience to every guest. (His exact words, this is why he's Family Member of the Month). His favorite menu item is the Chicken Pesto Pizza. In his free time Bert enjoys sports, movies, and traveling.

Tempe is proud to announce our most recent Family Member of the Month, Robert Desko. Rob has only been with us a short time but he has really made an impact quickly. His commitment to excellence and teamwork has not only shown in how he treats his tables, but has rubbed off on the rest of us. You can catch him helping his team-mates with anything they need, chatting with his tables about football, or giving fantastic Scotch suggestions. Next time you see him give him a pat on the back for a job well done!
