A few more years passed, and Emmedel was promoted to lead server and trainer for all new hires, while working in this role he became interested in a food and beverage management position and began to strive to get his foot in the door; a year later he landed the restaurant supervisor role and got his first taste in management. During the pandemic he was offered an assistant manager position at Las Sendas Grille from the country club in Mesa AZ and learned to manage and operate a restaurant. The opportunity presented itself for Emmedel to join The Country Club at DC Ranch family as the Ranch House Manager and hasn’t looked back. He is very happy to be here and is excited to share his knowledge with his team.
