KZ Employee Spotlight : Katie

There are a lot of people that contribute to the success of both restaurants and we value them immensely. We'd like you to get to know the people that help you decide which pizza to order and help make your dining experience at Kitchen ZINC and exceptional one! 

This weeks Staff Spotlight is Katie. If you haven't been to KZ in a while, you may also recognize her as our hostess at ZINC. Say 'Hi' to her the next time you see her! 


Name: My name is Katie Garcia


Where are you from? 
I’m from Torrington CT 


What do you love about working at Kitchen ZINC? 
I love a lot of things about working at Kitchen Zinc, to start I love my coworkers. We’re able to have a blast while we work while getting the job done. I also love our customer base - it’s diverse and I always leave the table laughing from our jokes and conversations. Kitchen Zinc is a job I don’t mind going to on Friday and Saturday nights!


When you’re not at Kitchen ZINC, what do you do in your free time? 
When I’m not working at Kitchen Zinc I spend most of my time in class and studying, but when I have free time I enjoy going to the gym, volunteering at The Boys and Girls Club, spending time outdoors, hunting for vintage finds at thrift stores and painting. 



What is your favorite pie from the menu? 
My favorite pie from the menu is the Fennel Salami. I’m a sucker for the traditional pepperoni pizza, and the fennel salami satisfies that craving while being even better. 


Are you a beer or wine person with your pizza? Which beer or wine at KZ currently is your favorite? Why? 
Legally not able to consume alcohol! But I love Foxon Park products! 


What are you looking forward to this year?
This year I’m looking forward to the unexpected! I’m excited to see where this year will take me - what new places I’ll explore and people I’ll meet. I may even be making a big move out of CT, time will tell!
