Coworker Corner: Meet Deja

Q: Tell us your Kitchen & Company story!

D: April of 2014 was my first time ever stepping foot into a Kitchen & Company and I instantly fell in love with the store. I walked around the whole store and on my way out I noticed there was a now hiring sign in the window, I just knew I had to apply! I filled out the application and handed it in that day. A few days later I was called in for an interview, and the following week I was starting my first shift! And that’s where it all began….I have been with Kitchen & Company for 2 years. I started as a cashier and I am now an assistant manager at the Christiana, DE store. I have also had the honor of working at the Bel Air, MD store before the closing and the Mount Pleasant, SC store for the grand opening.
 
Q:What is your favorite food to cook?
D:I’m just really getting into cooking but I LOVE baking ! My favorite thing to bake is colorful rum cupcakes; they are AMAZING!
 
Q:What is your favorite food to eat?
D:My favorite thing to eat is mozzarella sticks! Whenever I have a taste for them I drive 30 mins to the closest Sonic because I haven’t found anyone who makes them better! 
Q:What is a fun fact no one would typically know about you?
D:A fun fact about me is I have 12 siblings! Our ages range from 8-28. We have so much fun when we all get together because we are so silly.
 
Q:If you could have your idol over for dinner, who would it be and what would you cook them?
D:My idol is actually my grandmother & I’ve had her over plenty of times for dinner! But for this particular occasion I would just want to cook her favorite meal.
