Employee Spotlight: Jorge (Venice Boardwalk)
Author | groundwork coffee Date | July 08, 2020
Community is a main pillar of Groundwork Coffee, both providing one for customers in our cafes and supporting the Los Angeles, Portland, and origin communities where we operate. We are so grateful for team members that go above and beyond to support the Groundwork community in their work.
If you visited our location on the Venice boardwalk, you have almost certainly run into Jorge. Frequently mentioned in customer comments, Jorge has been bringing his positive energy and hard working attitude to our Venice cafe for many years.
We asked Lianna Bass, one of our retail operations managers about working with Jorge and how he supports his team and community. She said:
“I always look forward to the days I get to visit the Groundwork on the boardwalk. The team there is so lovely and always equipped with a smile. You can see the amazing love and support Jorge puts into his team members by the warmth that radiates from the store. Every time I have had the pleasure of watching him in action I see this respect and care go out to each person he comes in contact with in our community. This is the very feeling that makes me fall in love with what I do and reminds me how important the cafe experience is to connecting us all in what can sometimes be a fractured and frantic society. I am always grateful for this reminder and can’t thank Jorge enough for this beautiful gift.”
Next time you're in Venice, pay a visit to the boardwalk and say hello.
