Meet Alonzo Young he is one of our talented sous chefs at Trinity Cafe.
Alonzo spends most of his time serving guests at our 2nd location on Busch Blvd. To those just meeting him at first he may seem quiet, but he is one the most wise and caring people on our team.
“I got started with Trinity Cafe through AARP,” said Alonzo. “I worked with them for about a month, then I got hired by Chef Benito.”
Before Chef Alonzo became part of the Trinity Cafe family, he was a machine operator. He drove big machines and trucks and even did some construction work. “I had worked in restaurants. So, you know, I was kind of already experienced in a lot of things when I came to Trinity.” Alonzo said.
Although he’s only been with Trinity Cafe for less than a year, he acts as if he’s been a part of our team forever. His voice is the first thing you notice about him. You feel like you’re talking to a trusted mentor, gaining wonderful words of wisdom every time he speaks.
“I enjoy doing what I do,” said Alonzo. He says that his favorite part of working at Trinity Cafe is the people. He loves the interesting and diverse people that walk through the doors on a daily basis. “Just being able to serve people a healthy meal and watch the grateful smiles on their faces. That’s the biggest thing to me.”
Alonzo says his favorite moment at Trinity Cafe is when it’s time to serve. “Trinity has been a blessing. I really enjoy it; it’s a good job to have. I just enjoy feeding people.”
