January Service Stars

Each month Kerbey Lane Cafe honors two Service Stars. These are team members who exemplify the KLC core values, who lend an extra helping hand, and who are all ‘round awesome people. They are certainly worthy of a spot on our blog. Check them out!

Austin Cafe Super Star

Service Star Team Member: Vaughn Litton

Find him at: our Southwest location

“Vaughn consistently kicks butt here. I've had the pleasure of working with him the past 3 years and he's always been a vital part of our wait staff. He works hard with a smile on his face and will help out anyone who needs it. During one of our busiest days he expo’d for the first time and was key in making our shift run smoothly. I have never seen anyone run food as fast as him and still do an amazing job.” –Abby Gore

I really enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.

Austin Cafe Service Stars

Service Star Store Leader: Quinn Ripley

Find her at: our Westlake location

“We secretly took an entire day in observance of how awesome Quinn is. We replaced our normal code red/greens with ‘Quinnspirational’ sheets, where we all expressed our appreciation for her majesty. WE LOVE YOU, QUINN! – Westlake Team”

How long have you worked at Kerbey Lane Cafe?

5 years.

What is your favorite thing about working at Kerbey Lane Cafe?

I believe feeding people is important. Good food can improve someone’s mood instantaneously, and I love watching the smiles on our customer’s faces.

If your last meal were at Kerbey Lane Cafe, what would you order?

Eggs Francisco (sub veggie patty for bacon, sub biscuits for English muffin) with home fries and a chocolate chip pancake with a cinnamon swirl.

Tell me about one of your favorite moments at KLC.

After working at the Southwest location for over 4 years, I transferred to Westlake. During my last day at Southwest I got a “glitter exit” from my team. They each took a handful of glitter and threw it in the air as I danced through it. It was so much fun!

What is your greatest talent/quality?

I’m really happy all the time. I’m just one of those happy people!

What’s your spirit animal?

Definitely a beagle (makes her ponytail into doggy ears). See, I even look like one!

Congratulations to the January Service Stars!
