The Gelato Spot Wood Fired Pizzeria
Happy Anniversary to local favorite, The Gelato Spot Wood Fired Pizzeria. September 26, 2018, they first opened their door for business on 32nd St & Shea. “We want to sincerely thank those patrons that supported us throughout the past year. We are grateful for your kind and encouraging words. Please come and celebrate with us during the month of October. Mention this article for a free scoop of gelato – our treat!” says owner, Mei Lee.

In honor of National Food Service Worker Day, celebrated September 25, PDQ is shining a spotlight on Ernie Garza, one of the restaurant’s many outstanding team members who exhibits endless dedication to creating outstanding food and a welcoming environment for all PDQ guests.

Ernesto (Ernie) Garza started working for PDQ when he was 17-years-old. He quickly earned the respect of his peers by conquering tasks and leading by example. Over the past two years, Ernie has learned all positions in the kitchen and mastered the art of customer service. He is currently a shift lead manager.

“People like Ernie make the world a better place,” said PDQ Operating Director Kristy Haase. “One of Ernie’s first requests as a manager was to hire his brother-in-law Brayden, who has autism. Ernie coaches, sets goals and monitors Brayden’s progress. He’s truly a remarkable leader and we are lucky to have him on the team.”
