Olive Garden relies on its dedicated team members to create the exceptional guest experiences that are the brand’s hallmark. Each and every person plays a major part in fostering the welcoming atmosphere that’s all about family and delicious food. These are the Faces of Olive Garden.

Every day, 150,000 people work in a Darden restaurant, and our goal is to enable all of them with the skills, tools and resources they need to create long-term careers with us. Beyond anything else, we want our team members to come to work knowing that their contributions are valued, appreciated and rewarded.

With Faces of Olive Garden, we introduce one of many amazing team members. You’ll hear their stories, their best experiences and learn why they enjoy working in a fun, supportive environment that makes them feel like part of our family.

Meet Courtney Clayton

In this week’s installment, we talk to Courtney Clayton, a Culinary Manager at the Olive Garden in Allen, Texas. Courtney has been with Olive Garden for more than two years and, after dealing with the loss of a family member, she talks about how her team at work stepped up to provide her with the love and support she needed to get through a difficult time. Courtney’s story is a touching example of how her Olive Garden family went above and beyond.
