The ‘Team’ defines Beaches!

When I started Beaches, the premise for the concept came down to one word. . . Fun! After all, this is a business focused on people whether they work here, dine here, or if there’s something we can do for somebody in the community. All of these things have one thing in common--it’s about making people feel good.
So ‘Fun’ truly becomes the driving force for our Team. It’s Fun to watch this Team smile & laugh with the Guests. It’s Fun to watch them interact with each other out of respect & concern for one another. It’s Fun to have them involved in community activities that not only help other people, but give a sense of belonging. It’s Fun to watch the energy & positive attitude peak as more & more Guests come in each day. It’s Fun for me to know that we have 2 restaurants that are moving in the same direction because of ‘good’ people.
Beaches is simply a place that has a Team that Cares. Now that’s Fun!

2010 Update!

Well, it was a nice Holiday season at the Beach with all our friends, and of course, the Team. Being open on New Year’s Day was new for us since it has always been the day we do our Beaches Holiday Party. I decided to do it later in the month so we could get our PDX Team together with us. They deserve a little celebration after working hard all last year!

We have a new menu going in this week- some minor changes, but some really good new items. Mike’s been busy in the kitchen creating some of your NEW favorites. I’ve got to go with the Tuna Poke appetizer, the Miso Ginger Teriyaki Salmon, Wild Turkey Bread Pudding--and my favorite--the Pork Shanks with pomegranate sherry sauce. Now I could eat that for breakfast, lunch & dinner!!

Lots of fun things coming up like the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, Green Eggs & Ham, and before you know it, Beaches Summertime Cruisin’. And, if you want some breakfast for a good cause, put January 24th on your calendar. We are doing a Celebrity Server Breakfast/ Fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club. It will be a breakfast buffet from 8am-10am for a cost of $10 per person. Out of that, $7 per person & anything you tip will go to Charity. Can’t get any better than that!

PDX update…. Should be ready for the remodel around the end of the month. We are still open in the meantime for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.

Stop by on your way out of town, or just stop by for the heck of it.

Talk to you soon, Mark
