Server Speak: What Are You Thankful For When You Work on Thanksgiving?

Kimberly Boyd  Position: Server/Cook/Baker/Management Years in the industry: 1 1/2 Tao Natural Foods, Minneapolis I look at Thanksgiving as a day of giving. It’s a day to emphasize the importance of putting others before yourself, which is something you already have to do regularly in the service industry. Working on Thanksgiving doesn’t bother me too much because I see it as a way to practice that.

Jordan Condie  Position: Bartender/Server Years in the industry: 10 Bar Luchador, Minneapolis I enjoy it because you’re sort of family with the people who are dining on holidays. Everyone is in a great mood and they welcome you into their good time. Plus a lot of people who come in and dine on the holidays are out-of-towners so they don’t have a lot of family around for the holidays — I mean it sucks to not be with your own family, but you get to be a part of someone else’s.
