Meet: Food Safety Coach

Adrianne understands the importance of work-life balance. With her five children, her home life has always been bustling with kids activities and family. She never would have dreamed that today she’d be celebrating 24 years with Taco Bell, and 13 years with Summerwood. 

“When I got married, I had no intentions of working any longer,” Adrianne says. “But Summerwood saw something special in me and asked me to give the organization a try.”

In 2008, Adrianne joined Summerwood after a successful career as a Restaurant General Manager (RGM) for a Taco Bell franchisee in New Jersey. She worked as an RGM for Summerwood and was promoted to Food Safety Coach for the company. 

Today, Adrianne works with health departments in tandem with team members to make sure the company exceeds food safety regulations and expectations. All along, it’s Summerwood’s respect of her need for family time that’s kept Adrianne so happy. 

“My family always comes first,” Adrianne says. “Summerwood leaders want you to be everything you can be. They see things in you that you don’t see in yourself, and bring out the best of you.”
