Congratulations to our Senior Scholarship winners!

Congratulations to our graduating seniors!

Each year, STONEFIRE Grill hosts a Senior Scholarship Essay Contest for our Team Members that are graduating high school. We received a total of 29 entrees this year and thoroughly enjoyed reaching each and every single one of them. This was our prompt:

Imagine the year is 2027. You’re 10 years older… and 10 years wiser. “Thirty-something” is looming on the horizon. Looking back, you realize it seems like only yesterday that you were a teenager working at STONEFIRE Grill. Are you happy where you are? Satisfied with the choices you’ve made in the past decade? Tell us what life is like for you “today” and how your days back at STONEFIRE shaped and molded you, to get you to this point in your life. 

Congratulations to Destiny Troung (Fountain Valley) for being our first place winner!

As well, a huge congratulations to our second place winner, Anthony Duarte (West Hills), and our third place winners, Nicholas Friedman (Thousand Oaks) and Tammy Che (Irvine).

In Destiny’s essay, she wrote about how the values and service instilled in her by her team shaped her love for working with others.

Hi! Thank you for calling Stonefire Fountain Valley. This is Destiny, how may I help you?” I smiled over the phone. Back then, guest service was the one thing I prided myself in. I loved seeing the smiles on our guests’ faces after I brought the meals to their tables. I also loved greeting them whenever they walked into the restaurant. However, I especially loved speaking to the guests about their lives and experiences; ones that I could never even dream about. I would hear stories about their adventures in different countries and tales about how they met their loved ones—all while I was taking down their order. It made me believe that I developed some type of bond with each and every person that walked through those doors. Thinking about it now, these experiences triggered my love to work with people.

Anthony Duarte spoke to his passion in becoming an architect and how working toward a common goal as a team is crucial.

Working toward a common goal as a team is an extremely crucial skillset which I learned during my employment as a teenager. While with Stonefire, I worked with back of the house members, fellow servers, and managerial staff to ensure that each guest is treated with the highest quality food and friendliest service possible. No individual is capable of successfully running a restaurant—much like no individual is capable of designing, scheduling, and constructing a building. Designing alongside fellow architects, construction companies, and city representatives is the product of my capacity to successfully operate a nearly 5-star restaurant, and do so as part of a team.

Nick Friedman, with an entrepreneurial spirit and hopes to own his own restaurant one day, spoke to the importance of having fun while working.

I learned from Stonefire Grill that in order to have exceptional service you must have happy team members. Having a fun work environment made the team members want to keep coming to work, and made them be as friendly as possible to the guests. Stonefire Grill is what taught me how to truly deal with guests and how they should be treated as if the were dining in your own home. The idea of “Happy To Serve” is an important one and stressed the importance of it into my team members minds until they felt about it the same way as I did. My managers at Stonefire Grill were my mentors and I learned a lot from them.  

Lastly, Tammy Che spoke to the importance of treating everyone with equal dignity and respect, as well as caring and valuing each other.

These are the moments that make me realize how happy I am to be in a job where I can service people. I am happy with my life because of the choices that I have made. 

Congratulations to the Class of 2017! Your STONEFIRE family could not be more proud of you.

All About Spinach

All About Spinach

Spinach is no stranger to the health food world, but there are many uses to spinach that many don’t know about. It’s no secret that spinach is a superfood that is packed with vitamins and minerals, including iron, Vitamin K, calcium, Vitamin A, potassium and many others. Contrary to what Popeye believed, spinach doesn’t give you super strength. (BBC) But did YOU know that it does have numerous other health benefits?

Health Benefits

Spinach might be helping you more than you even thought possible! As per Organic Facts, spinach is believed to have the ability to increase energy, strength (not quite as much as Popeye), and blood quality. Spinach is also an anti-inflammatory, and could potentially protect against cancer due to its anti-inflammatory effects. Spinach may also help to improve skin quality and help to control hunger, fullness, and blood sugar levels. Other health benefits include better eyesight, lowered blood pressure, prevention against muscular degeneration due to age, increased bone strength, prevention against heart problems like heart attacks, increased neurologic functioning, and healthy development for fetuses and children. It may even play in role in lowering the risk of asthma. Its benefits all come from the rich assortment of vitamins and minerals that spinach provides. (Medical News Today)

How to Incorporate Spinach

So, now we know how good spinach is for you, but how can you incorporate it into your diet? Spinach is best when it is between medium and dark green. It’s vitamins and minerals are most prevalent when the vegetable is fresh. Spinach can be served raw, as in a salad for example, or cooked down and added to a meal. Raw spinach blended into a smoothie with other fruits and vegetables is thought to be the best way to consume all of the vitamins and minerals contained in the vegetable.
Need some more specific suggestions? We like our Spinach Salad. With quinoa or grilled chicken, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, tomato, mozzarella cheese, avocado, croutons, and Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette mixed in with spinach, you can’t go wrong. If you want a the benefits of spinach but don’t like the sound of our Spinach Salad, you can substitute spinach in for the greens in any of our 15 other market fresh salads! And don’t worry, our spinach is ALWAYS freshly prepared!
