“I always try to find ways to exceed the expectations of the guests while finding solutions that work for all our team members. I want each guest to feel special when they come to a DZ Restaurant; as if they were coming to my home as a guest.” said Michele of her role as Director of Sales, “Most importantly our guests should come away feeling like they were the only ones in the restaurant that evening.”
