Name: Dan Taylor
Job: Kitchen Shift Lead, Beasley's + Chuck's
Hometown: Raleigh, NC
How long have you worked at the Cornershop? 3 years
Favorite team memory? The day that Henry Winkler came in for lunch--we were flipping out that The Fonz was eating with us. Even just getting to see him from the kitchen was awesome!
What do you like about your job? I like the familial environment. Everyone looks out for each other, encourages each other. I’ve never had that anywhere that I’ve worked, it's a blessing.
When you’re not working, you’re probably….playing music. Any free time I have is spent practicing and performing with my band. We're called Essex Muro and we play punk rock.
What would you tell a visitor to do while in Raleigh? I'd tell them to go to Poole's Diner for dinner, then hit some of the museums in the area. I love the NC History Museum and the Museum of Natural Science.
What’s your favorite thing on the menu? I usually order the veggie sandwich, but add fried chicken thigh.
Your secret talent is? I know a lot of facts about music and movies--I could talk about it for hours.
