Bussing tables to gourmet chef
While studying to be a teacher and managing a Perkins, Meagan Reyes found a new calling: a passion for cooking. Born in Bluff Siding, Wisconsin, Meagan grew up with her dad cooking for her family, which inspired her to start cooking. Meagan first started bussing tables at the Hillside Fish House back in 2010, has moved her way up the ladder working at several restaurants in town, and has been with us at Signatures for over three years.
Starting as a sauté chef in 2017, Meagan was put in charge of making the Signatures Soup De Jour. She notes, “It was the first time I made something that was beyond what I was able to do in the past.” Meagan quickly proved herself to be a highly-skilled asset to the team with her strong work ethic and ability to create excellent dishes for guests in both Signatures and The Grill.
Over the last year, Meagan has become the kitchen manager where she oversees all parts of the kitchens and helps create new dishes for the seasonal menus. “Even without traditional training, I have always been the type of person who excels in managing a team and feel I am able to maintain Signatures’ high quality of expectations in a professional and creative manner.”
