Every week we swap out the Served banner art above, introducing you to the people who serve food and drinks in the South Sound. This week, meet BriAnn Hein.

Server Banner Girl, Sept. 29-Oct. 5, 2014

BriAnn Hein

BriAnn Hein genuinely cares about making peoples' dining experience an enjoyable one. She understands cooking at home is cheaper ... but not as fun. Hein creates an entertaining environment with a bubbly personality, willingness to accommodate, ability to act as a food tour guide and her real desire to make sure guests enjoy themselves overall. Her service industry career began at Mick's Ale House in Medford, Oregon. From there I have worked all over Oregon and the South Sound of Washington. She's currently serving at Shake, Shake, Shake in Tacoma's Stadium District and North China Garden on Sixth Avenue. Occasionally, she'll help out with the bustling weekend breakfast at Dirty Oscar's.

Why do you serve?

"This might sound weird but serving is part of something I need in my everyday life. I LOVE talking to people and meeting new people. I crave being social with random strangers. You meet some of the most incredible people. I got to serve the English Beat band."

Who's your favorite server in the South Sound?

"It's really hard to choose one favorite. But I have to choose Zach Gettel at Duke's Chowder House. Cool, calm and collected and super funny. Can I mention his muscles? LOL."

What are you most proud to serve?

"I am most proud to serve fresh, local and inspiring foods. I love watching people try something new for the first time and find themselves speechless. Maybe because their mouth is full, but you can see it on their face."

What's your favorite drink?

"Well, my current drink is sparkling Organic Blood Orange Soda. Alcohol and I broke up three years ago."

"What's your favorite movie?

"Don't laugh, OK? Dances with Wolves. I don't know why but I love it. Years ago McDonald's had three-dollar movies you could add to your meal. I got Dances with Wolves and I was hooked." 

What don't you serve?

"What I don't like to serve is a bad attitude. I love laughing and seeing customers happy. The happier the customers are the happier I am."

What's on your radar at Shake Shake Shake?

"Well ... we have a really cool projector and TVs so how about I radar all you folks down to have some beer, burgers and boozy shakes and cheer on our Hawks together?! Ya, sounds good to me too."
