David D., Line Cook


David started his journey with Flagship in August 2018.

He was hired on as a Prep Cook and brought with him a strong work ethic and passion for the job. His journey between then and now has been a fun and exciting developmental process, one that propelled David from Prep Cook to Line Cook, and now he’s working to achieve a position as a Line Cook Lead.

“David has made the most improvement and impact on our kitchen as a whole. He has great attendance and is very reliable, offers to work events outside normal business hours, shows good teamwork daily and has a positive attitude,” said his manager, Chef Benjamin H. “He is not afraid to learn new techniques or processes and is open to guidance and constructive criticism.”

Additionally, David has been the café’s unofficial safety ambassador since opening, ensuring his entire team is informed and partaking in safe kitchen and cooking habits.

This fall, David was deservingly awarded the Employee of the Quarter award. His exemplary drive and passion for the job, whether it be food production or kitchen operations, is nothing short of excellent.

We consider ourselves lucky to have people like David on our team!
