Meet the Team: Travis Poole


To celebrate #5yearsofcornershop, we wanted to introduce some of the awesome team members that make the place what it is. Say hi to them the next time you come in!

Name: Travis Poole

Job: Grill cook, trainer at Beasley's + Chuck's

Hometown: Greensboro, North Carolina

How long have you worked at the Cornershop? 11 months

Favorite team memory?

I really loved the AC Restaurants holiday party. I knew that Ashley [Christensen] was a fun person, but that night was when I really understood the company philosophy of "work hard, play hard"--she made an ice luge out of a giant block of ice and then poured shots for anyone who wanted one. That was great.

What do you like about your job?

The atmosphere, the people. I like coming in on Saturdays, it’s really busy, everyone’s on point, working as a team. We joke around, but everyone knows the limit and when to get to work.

When you’re not working, you’re probably….

Hanging out with my brother and sister. And bowling. I’ve been bowling a lot lately.

What would you tell a visitor to do while in Raleigh?

I'd definitely suggest that they walk around downtown, maybe hit the Museum of Science. And go to an NC State football game!

What’s your favorite thing on the menu?

At Beasley’s, the chicken biscuit; the Spirit Animal at Chuck’s; and anything with bourbon at Fox.

Your secret talent is?

I love to make people laugh.
