“I started at Giardino as a part-time college student after working at a few other restaurants. In my years as a Garden Chef, I was able to work in multiple locations and learn the various roles and their task. When I graduated with a “Hospitality’ degree I began searching for a position, and that is when my Manager recommended me to the Corporate Office. I’ve always had a passion for food, but this job has given me a new perspective on what it takes to run a successful restaurant brand. Although I’ve spent the majority of my time at Giardino in a customer-facing position, I have enjoyed working with the Corporate Team that works behind the scenes.”

“Giardino Gourmet Salads welcomed me to their team in 2013. I was living in Miami and attending FIU when I started working at the South Miami location as Gardener Chef.
I loved the culture and felt comfortable approaching the franchisee with any questions I had about the backend operations of owning a fast-casual restaurant. As a Manager, one of my favorite parts about working with Jaime and Rob was opening new locations under their instruction. With the help of my father and uncle, we opened the Naples location of Giardino in 2018. I love the dynamic of working alongside my family, as well as with those very same franchisees who instructed me back in 2013.”

“We are friends who have decided to embark on an entrepreneurial journey together. As we began our search for the right business opportunity, we knew we wanted to not only be franchisees but also be an integral part of the company’s growth. After thorough research and consideration, we came across Giardino, a brand with superior products and an attractive economic business model. We were immediately drawn to the brand and knew that it was the perfect fit for us. In 2012, we took the leap and opened our first Giardino franchise unit. The experience was both exciting and challenging, but we were determined to make our business a success. With the help of the Giardino team, we were able to navigate the ins and outs of running a franchise and grow our business. Since then, we have continued to expand our franchise units and have been proud to be a part of Giardino’s growth as a company. Our journey as entrepreneurs has been a rewarding one, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a successful brand.”
