How long have you worked for Bread & Butter Concepts and what is your role? I've worked for the company for about a year and a half. I serve as Brand Ambassador for BBC and as a Service Captain at Stock Hill.
What’s your favorite BBC concept? The Oliver. It was the first restaurant I opened with BBC. It was amazing to see how much work went into it, and to be a part of that team.
What was your first service industry job? When I was sixteen, I got a job as a hostess at the Margarita's in Martin City.
If you could serve anyone at Stock Hill who would it be? Kenney Atkinson, he's our dishwasher. He definitely has the hardest and most underappreciated job of any Stock Hill employee.
What’s your favorite dish on the menu? Why? The Wood-fire Chef's Platter. It caters to the more adventurous guest and changes constantly. I'm always excited to see what our culinary team will come up with.
What’s your favorite thing about Kansas City? It's hard to have one favorite thing about this city. Kansas City is filled with beauty and innovation. There is magic happening everywhere, you just have to go out and find it. I love that in many ways, KC is still a best-kept-secret.
What are some of your favorite places to eat in Kansas City? I eat a lot of home cooked meals, so I'm partial to my kitchen. If Rick Mullins is cooking, I go to Gram and Dun. I like Bob Wasabi, Waldo Pizza, Cafe Vietnam in Columbus Park, and Mud Pie. Family meal at Stock Hill is pretty great, when Joe is cooking vegetables.
Who inspires you the most? Deborah Greene, she works her butt off! Can I say that? My grandmother, mother, my sisters. Strong women who make things happen and support each other in the process.
What’s your favorite part about working for Bread & Butter Concepts? The people. It feels like one big, strange, extended family.
