Our YOU FIRST Philosophy
In addition to no night shifts, ever and our fully chef-curated menu, our priority has always been our people. We care about our customers, and we care about you! That's where our YOU FIRST culture begins - each day, we put our employees first and strive to make them happy. They are empowered with an independence to make decisions that will help provide an exceptional breakfast, brunch, or lunch experience for their customers. In fact, we like to say, we love our employees more than bacon. And that says a lot.
