You first is a great concept. Serving customers by utilizing the 5-steps of service and upholding the 10 serving commandments that first watch is known for, is not for the weak server. There are these standards set in place to ensure great service, memorable experiences, and to make servers money. It's a great, fast-paced environment that will make you money. The managers are hands on and help everyone all day long.
If I could change anything, it would be the follow-up and follow-thru on disciplinary issues. Fair treatment throughout the employee staff is also something where first watch falls short.

For coffee lovers this is the place to be, you are greeted with a pot of fresh-brewed coffee! We serve breakfast and lunch, so you could also go for brunch! The food is honestly the best because you get good flavor combinations but at the same time it's on the healthy side. Another thing that I really enjoy would be the fact that we make some of our juices in the mornings, our eggs are cage-free, and we always have seasonal items for you to try. One thing that I would change would be for us to add soy milk, almond milk or coconut milk to the menu; a lot of customers that come are vegan, so they would like to enjoy a cup of fresh coffee with milk.
I love how my small staff is like family, and how well we work together and communicate as a team. The food is amazing so it is so easy to sell what you love! Overall best restaurant company I have ever worked fore. Great management throughout the tiers.
