How long have you worked for DoubleDave’s?
Just hit the 6-year mark in August, with hopefully many more to come!
What’s your favorite DoubleDave’s product?
Hard to choose just one, but my personal favorite are the bone-in wings. Everywhere else I order them, they’re always so annoyingly greasy, but I think ours are just right.
Ranch or Red Sauce?
I love dipping just about anything in ranch, but I’ll still have red sauce from time to time just to mix things up.
Favorite Pizza of the Month so far?
Hands down, the Chicken & Waffles pizza. I could eat it for breakfast, dessert, whenever- There’s never a bad time for Chicken & Waffles pizza.
What is your favorite part about working for DoubleDave’s?
The atmosphere and company culture. I enjoy helping to grow a brand and business that feels like family, as opposed to some giant, emotionless machine where you're treated as just another cog. Everyone at DoubleDave’s is always just a phone call away and eager to help, no matter how minor the issue. That’s something you just don’t find working anywhere else, and makes being a part of the DoubleDave’s family that much more enjoyable.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
I guess there aren’t many Asian-American actors as handsome and well put-together as myself, but I’d have to say Bobby Lee. That guy can make practically anything he’s in hilarious.
What advice would you give to recent new hires?
Learn the small things first, learn to do them well, and build on that. You’ll pick up everything eventually, but initially just focus on mastering a single position. Prioritize quality over speed while you’re learning- With enough practice and consistency, everything will eventually become second nature.
What do you like to do on your days off?
Relax! Besides that, I’m always looking for new foods or restaurants to try.
What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
Iron Man’s power suit if such a thing really exists. If not, I’d settle for a Batmobile.
What’s the first concert you went to?
H.O.T. – They’re considered one of the first K-pop “idol” groups, and are legendary in South Korea where I lived most of my younger years. Their music is so emotionally moving- I just feel like their lyrics are speaking directly to my soul. I still think back fondly upon that warm summer night in Seoul where I saw them for the first time… I was forever changed in ways I can’t even describe.
What music do you like to play on your shift?
Usually whatever everyone else feels like... They don’t seem all that into my classic K-pop playlists, but I’ll occasionally sneak a track in here or there.
Where are you from?
I grew up in South Korea and Michigan, but I’ll always call Texas my home.
Anything else you want to add?
I didn’t see working at DoubleDave’s as a long-term thing when I first started, but I quickly grew to love it. Every day here is a new experience that I legitimately look forward to when I wake up, and I really couldn’t see myself working anywhere else. Whatever the future holds, I’m excited for it.
