Congrats to Madison Flugga, one of our dedicated & talented bartenders at our Lynchburg, VA TGI Fridays!

United Vice President of Operations Louis Quartochi stopped by the Lynchburg location to recognize the great work they’ve been doing, and he wrote this to share his excitement….

“I stopped in our Lynchburg, VA restaurant yesterday to check in on the team and had the opportunity to see Madison Flugga, one of our bartenders delivering a true ‘Corner Bar’ experience to a group of regulars. As the group was leaving, they made it clear she was ‘tops’ and she was the reason they are loyal regulars! I recognized her with a Vice President’s Gold Star and a bit of $$ to simply say Thank You for all that she does on a daily basis!!!!”Louis Quartochi, Vice President of United Restaurant Group.

Keep up the good work team Madison (and team Lynchburg) – you make us proud!
