At Olive Garden, our team members serve as the faces of our brand and ambassadors of our core values. They make an impression on every guest who walks through our front doors, delivering great food, an engaging atmosphere and unmatched service. We are strong and successful because of our people, each with diverse talents and backgrounds, who respect each other and enjoy working side by side to serve our guests and communities.
Meet one of the Faces of Olive Garden, Joel Sanchez, general manager in Tucson, AZ.
Joel joined Olive Garden as a service manager hired through a job fair. Before that, he had worked in a finance job and learned of Darden’s success through his research into strong companies. “The success of the company is what drew me to it and what keeps me here.”
