Kristin: An Area Coach With a Winning Mindset
While technically a Taco Bell veteran of nearly 20 years, Area Coach Kristin is new to the Summerwood family as her restaurant location was just acquired by the company two years ago. Change can be hard, but Kristin shares that her team was welcomed with open arms. “… we quickly learned that Summerwood is here to do anything that we need,” she says.
“Summerwood is growing. They’re going to continue growing. They’re not going anywhere.” – Kristin, Area Coach
As an Area Coach, Kristin’s job is to support the day–to–day operations of the Restaurant General Manager (RGM). Communication is key and Kristin says that she approaches the job with the attitude of, “See what can we do better to make things good for the customers. How can we improve?”
And while her current role gives her the responsibility of providing support, Kristin acknowledges that she received the same treatment during her rise to the top. “I had great training,” she says. “I had great people along the way to help me.”
“As an Area Coach, you’re forward thinking,” Kristin shares. “And it’s not just for one location, it’s for multiple locations.”
As a busy mom of four (including five–year–old twins!), Kristin is used to a fast–paced routine accommodating different people and schedules. And similar to seeing her own children grow up, Kristin shares that it’s also rewarding watching her young team members get hired for their first job with a Summerwood Taco Bell at age 15, and then while attending school and receiving to further their education.
For anyone interested in starting a career with Summerwood, Kristin shares, “If you’re dedicated and you put the work in, there’s a position available for you with us.” What do you say? Are you in?
