Just as our wings come in many flavors, we believe our people come to Wingstop with many stories. In celebration of Pride month, we’ve created a platform for all team members to speak their flavor and celebrate the richness of our diversity. We must do more in the fight for equality for all under-represented groups. We continue to honor and stand with those fighting for change. At Wingstop, we live by The Wingstop Way. Our value of inclusion is top-of-mind and we are spotlighting some of our rockstar team members who bring their true selves to work every day.
This month, we are spotlighting Senior New Restaurant Opening Trainer, Adrian Garrett! Read below on what it means for Adrian to be part of the LGBTQ+ community and how Wingstop allows her the freedom to be self-expressive!
Tell us about yourself!
What’s up? I’m Adrian Garrett and I train and develop awesome people. I’m an Arkansas native residing in Dallas, Texas, but I’m still a Razorback fan at heart! Woo Pig Sooie! I love to travel, play with my dogs, collect sneakers and listen to music. After being in the restaurant industry for over 10 years, I’ve learned the value of wearing multiple hats. I began my career as a cashier, and six months into 2021, I’ve accepted a new position as Senior New Restaurant Opening Trainer. I joined Wingstop in 2019 because I love chicken wings and I wanted to work with an iconic brand!
How does Wingstop’s culture enable you to bring your full self to work?
Wingstop’s mission is to Serve the World Flavor, and we truly exude a universal culture where diversity and inclusion are not just words but are at the heart of who we are and are engrained in our value system, The Wingstop Way. Each day I feel empowered, inspired, and supported to continue working hard. This allows me the freedom to be self-expressive and passionate about developing our talent and allows me to live The Wingstop Way every day!
What is your advice for others looking to get into this field? How can they succeed?
Be authentic and passionate about the work you do. I believe success is the result of being service minded to others.
What does being part of the LGBTQ+ community mean to you?
It means having a community and the freedom to show up as my full self without fear of judgment.
Is there anything else you want to tell us about yourself, your job, or message for others?
Always be yourself!
