Leaving a Legacy: Andria's Steakhouse Graduates Spread Their Wings While Anchoring Roots in the Community
O'FALLON - Since 1978 Andria’s Steakhouse-O’Fallon, Illinois has touched many lives - from patrons dining at the establishment to employees building roots within their community. Each year members of Andria’s staff take off to spread their wings onto their next adventure after graduating high school. Not only do these graduates leave a mark on the establishment during their time working, but Andria’s has also given them the opportunity to extend their roots in the community.
“Before working at Andria’s, I did not realize how many people that I personally knew would be dining at my tables. I have lived in O’Fallon for most of my life, and being at Andria’s has made me realize how connected I am with my community. Having a job here has shown me that the residents of O’Fallon are my family, and I will be leaving many of the people that have made me the person I am today,” says Jackson Glover, busser with Andria’s.
