Chris Baggetta, Director of Pacific Wine and Spirits in San Francisco, shares her career timeline and advice for up-and-coming talent.
“It is commonly said in the restaurant industry that the guest always comes first. Danny Meyer taught me that first we must care for our colleagues. 'Taking care of each other fills us up with the caring we need to spill over to our guests and naturally puts our team in a stronger emotional position to care for them.' I've never forgotten that.„
