Employees Who Inspire

Our marvelous employees really are our only secret ingredient. We only hire one in ten who apply, most of who are in high school and participate in extracurricular activities. We provide them a safe, friendly environment and encourage them to develop enduring life skills required to have successful, long-lasting careers. For many of our employees, Dion’s is their first job. Like it was for our CEO whom says he got a summer job at Dion’s when he was 16 and never left.

Every month we tell a story about an employee who inspires us both inside and outside of Dion’s.

Daniela’s kindness and care is obvious, not only from her actions at our Santa Fe location, but also her involvement in the community.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday, Daniela serves low-income families by packing and distributing lunch bags. In addition, she spends time mentoring children by coaching soccer.

Even with all of the time Daniela spends serving others, she continues to achieve goals at Dion’s. Daniela was recently promoted to be an Assistant Manager.

On top of it all, she is studying photography at the Santa Fe Community College.

Daniela embodies the Dion’s Leadership Cornerstone of “Kindness” with her charitable behavior and genuine care for others. We are honored to have Daniela work as our employee, and are equally honored to recognize her as an “Employee Who Inspires” and have presented her with a $150 Visa Gift Card. Thank you, Daniela, for all of your service in the community!
