Good Morning!! Let me tell you about the 4 amazing guys in my life. Where the guest know my girls.... the guys in the kitchen? they are the heartbeat of the CIG. Between them they have 40 plus years of restuarant experience. They push themselves to their physical limit every day. They care about the quality of food they are putting out. 3 of them have custody of young girls, they are single dads, when they are exhausted from here, they still have a full time job at home with their precious daughters. They sing with me, they laugh and they dance. They are the first ones here with me at 4:30 and always the last ones to leave. They are KIND and when I hire thats the key word. They are dealing with 7 stressed out waitresses and an absolutely crazy boss and a full open kitchen.They are constantly receiving contructive criticism and praise. I have prayed for every single one of them, before I ever knew them. They are here, because the Lord brought them here. They are my teacher and they make the CIG look good. The one thing they do, that makes my heart sing? They cook every Monday for the mssion....and they take great pride in it. When I feel the weight of the world or life is just tough, I look at the amazing people the Lord has put in my life. I dont deserve them, but Im so thankful for them. Happy Thursday yall... who are you thankful for?. Im so underserving of these 4 guys, but Im thankfull, the Lord gave them to me:)
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
