TK KITCHEN TEAM
TK KITCHEN TEAM
Along with other factors, the two main criteria for an outstanding guest experience are great service and great food. The TK Kitchen Team is responsible for delivering the highest-quality food possible, to every guest, every time. This is accomplished with a winning team, and a comprehensive suite of kitchen display screens, menu item counters, and intelligent cook timers. These tools aid us in timing all of our cooked-to-order items so that each item is ready for plating at the same time, to be served to our guests, hot and fresh, every time. The tools are only an aid! The highest level of success is most dependent upon our Kitchen Team. Our most valuable team members, and the highest paid, share these qualities:
An unwavering positive attitude, full of energy
Caring and courteous
Detail oriented, with extreme pride in their work
