The Restaurant Legends Award recognizes the long-term dedication of employees of the restaurant industry, with 20 or more years of service at one establishment.
With 136 years combined years of service at their respective restaurants at the airport, these men and women exemplify the satisfaction of making their jobs a lifelong and rewarding career. They are:
- Suzanne DiGiovanni, bartender at Atrium Bar, employed for 34 years
- Barbara Jones, bartender at Atrium Bar, employed for 34 years
- Richard Tastet, utility employee at Dooky Chase’s Restaurant, employed for 34 years
- Nicki Walker, server at Ye Olde College Inn, employed for 34 years
“We hope to encourage younger workers to follow the examples that each of these special men and women have set for the industry,” said Stan Harris, president & CEO of the LRA. “It is more than evident that Delaware North fosters a sense of pride among their employees, promotes from within and stresses the importance of jobs within the industry.”
