Pacific Grill Manager
Chris’s career track to managing our food court is unique in that he came to Jackson Rancheria in 2008 with no cooking experience and has risen through the ranks with a lot of long hours and dedication to his current position.
“I had the opportunity to come in and learn from some exceptional chefs, who took me under their wings and showed me the business,” says Chris. “Our management team here is tremendous, with their leadership and their ability to teach people.”
He is used to learning as he goes. He was working as a construction crew supervisor when he was just 17 over workers twice his age.
He started at Jackson Rancheria as a Cook/Cashier I. His dedication and eagerness to learn was quickly recognized and he was soon promoted to Supervisor.
He was named Manager of our old food court in 2011, and then oversaw the transition to the new Pacific Grill.
Chris is very excited about the Pacific Grill and the opportunity to offer fresh and affordable Asian and California foods in a quick serve setting.
