Leaders at Scott’s Restaurants

I’d like to acknowledge some of the leaders at Scott’s Restaurants and one person who stands out as especially important is Jackie Julien. She is cut from the same cloth as my mother, Lena. My mother had nine children in twelve years. She ran a very tight and organized ship. Jackie doesn’t have nine children, but she does have a family of coworkers that look up to her for guidance. Jackie started working with Scott’s Restaurants 35 years ago. She… Continue reading Leaders at Scott’s Restaurants

I have shared with you stories from Scott’s Restaurants about some of our long-term friends and guests, our long-time employees, and our loyal vendors. I would like to take this opportunity to brag about the General Manager for Scott’s Restaurants in Walnut Creek – Matt Padilla – the “Spartan”. “Spartan” was the nickname given to Matt by my good friend Ken Hofmann, founder of The Hofmann Company. Long before Mr. Hofmann owned either the Seattle Seahawks or the Oakland… Continue reading The Spartan

Relationships with Purveyors

Raymond Gallagher, Founder Here I am again! A little bit about our success, it starts with the relationships I have built with my prime purveyors. I have been very fortunate to have worked with these key purveyors for over 50 years. I would like to share some of their names with you. First of all, my mentor Victor Barulich, with BiRite Foodservice Distributors, took me under his wing 56 years ago. Three generations later, I am still… Continue reading Relationships with Purveyors
