Jan celebrating with some cake.

Jan is hanging up her apron after 28 years of making those delicious Cheddar Bay Biscuits, everyones favorite Red Lobster treat.

Her tenure came to a close with a retirement party at the seafood restaurant.  Friends, family, and coworkers were there to celebrate.

When Jan started with Red Lobster, she was responsible for cleaning the restaurant.

“One day a manager said, ‘we need help in the kitchen!’ So I jumped in,” Jan states.

From that day on she was solely in charge of making those beloved bread.  In fact, she was the first person at the Columbia location that was officially trained at this position.

“And I am taking the recipe to the grave!” She exclaims.

With her free time, she hopes to travel – St. Louis, Kansas City, and Minnesota are at the top of her list.  Heavily involved in Williams Syndrome Association (WSA), Jan is looking forward to attending more of these conferences and will continue to serve as an advocate for WSA.

“It still hasn’t settled in!” Jan says of retirement.

Congratulations, Jan!
