Stephani Walker

I have worked at Ck’s Tavern and Grill for five years now. I truly enjoy my job, it is an exciting place to work. I would really contribute the success of the restaurant to the friendly and loyal patrons who have played a huge role in the popularity and overall success of the business. Ck’s Tavern and Grill is not only the place that I work, but it is also like a second home. The employees are wonderful and we have all formed a family like relationship. The employees have also had a large part in the success of Ck’s Tavern and Grill. We have become friends with the customers and have formed a tight knit relationship with our patrons. This family dynamic that we share at the restaurant has really been founded on the wonderful family owners of Ck’s Tavern and Grill. They work hard to make everyone feel welcomed and content by delivering superior service. I do not believe we would still be in business if it were not for the trust and respect we have for each other. We all work together to help make Ck’s successful and I have been privileged enough to be a part of this wonderful family dynamic that has helped make the restaurant an absolute success.

Hey everyone!  I’m Tommy.  I’ve been working at CK’s for almost 3 years now, and I absolutely love it here.  I’ve worked in a few different restaurants in the past, and I’m happy to have landed here.  There’s a lot of reasons I’ve stayed here at CK’s.  First, Kendra and her management staff are such great people to work with.  I’ve learned a lot from my management, and continue to grow each shift.  Second, the staff I work along side is just plain awesome.  We all work hard at what we do, we also really like what we do.  We are allowed to be ourselves when we’re working, not a manufactured personality you can find at your local chain restaurant.  The fact that we are your neighborhood place really comes out after you come in just once and observe everything that’s going on around you.  It’s the kind of place where everyone knows everyone.  One more great thing about our place is our lack of staff turnover.  I’ve been here since August of 2007, and I’m still pretty much the new guy.

A little about me: I grew up in the Chicago area, and moved to Phoenix in January of 2005.  I’m a huge Cubs and Bears fan.  I get to as many spring training games as life will allow.  And each year the Cubs come to town to play the Diamondbacks, you can usually find me at those games as well.  I also like to play a lot of golf, so if you want to hit the links with me sometime, just ask!  I get out and play with a lot of our regulars….regularly ;)  I recently got married to the greatest girl I could ask for.  Many of you know her already, and if you haven’t met her yet, I’ll be happy to introduce you to her. She comes and hangs out when she can.  Lastly, if you’re wondering who is running our twitter account, then look no further.  I’m that guy!  Please feel free to tweet us with any questions or comments.  We’re always looking to make more friends online as well as in person.
See you at CK’s!
