Meet the Staff – FOH Manager

So it has been awhile since I posted on our blog, life is busy when you’re running a food truck. So it’s probably time I introduced myself. I’m Kayla and I am the one behind most of the blog, Facebook and Instagram posts. My titles include Front of House Manager, Baker, Line Cook, Marketing Manager, Chef’s Wife, Owner, among many others. I was born and raised in Iowa, smack dab in the middle of 5 kids and started working in customer service when I was 14. After high school I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do I was interested in culinary, medical, event planning, graphic design, and business management, So owning-operating a food truck lets me use all of those interests and talents. When not working at Well Seasoned you might have me baking barefoot in my kitchen at home, working on one of my various craft projects or doing various event planning.

Meet the Staff – Operations Manager

This is David Lane, he is one of our owners, Operations Manager and in-house comic relief. He will be handling our behind the scenes work!

David grew up in Florida and North Carolina. As a child much of his life revolved around food. Sometimes it was Key Lime Pie made with limes from the tree in his grandmother’s backyard. Other times it was oysters with his Dad, or his mom’s chicken and dumplings. No matter what the food was it was always fresh and scratch made.

He has a degree in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University and several years in food service as everything from a prep cook to Assistant GM. He looks forward to bringing all of this, his love for all things food and his experience in management to your experience at Well Seasoned!

Meet the Staff – Executive Chef

This is Jarrod Lane. He is our one of our Owners, Executive Chef and “Culinary Chieftain”. He has worked in kitchens almost his entire life, from washing dishes in a  local BBQ restaurant where he grew up, to catering on his own.  He had his culinary training at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, NE and has associates degrees in Culinary Arts, Hospitality Management and Entrepreneurship. During his training, he was able to spend about 2 months interning at 2 different restaurants in Italy, as well as visiting Thailand and Japan on a culinary school trip. He grew up all over The South, born in Texas and moving to North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and finally ending up here in Nebraska in 2010. Jarrod has been affectionately called ‘the old man’ enjoying a cigar and whiskey on the front porch in a cardigan sweater. You might also find him oiling his leather bag or cowboy boots, or drinking sweet tea and watching tv with his wife. Jarrod is looking forward to being able to share some of his Southern and Italian roots with you at Well Seasoned.
