Fastcasual.com has been reporting on important news, events, trends, and people in the $23.5 BILLION fast-casual restaurant industry since 1997. For the last three years, FastCasual has run their “Women in the Lead” series celebrating women and featuring some of the industry’s most innovative and successful female leaders. It comes as no surprise, then, that our very own President of Miller’s Roast Beef®, Gwen Graham, was one of these featured women!
“Women represent 53 percent of the nation’s restaurant industry workforce and have a higher representation in management positions than they do in the overall economy,” Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association, said in an interview with FastCasual. “We must continue to lead the way and provide a chance to succeed to all who join our industry.”
Gwen got involved in the restaurant industry, 13 years ago, after spending many years working in other industries, searching for where she was meant to be. From the moment Gwen started working at Miller’s, she knew that she had found her place and she hasn’t looked back.
