January's Beatons Bod: Tonie

Each month we dedicate a section of our monthly Bulletin to a new member of staff, our Beatons Bod. We like to do this as it introduces them to you, our customers and we all get to find out a bit more about them. This months Beatons Bod is Tonie, a member of the team in our Wellington location. 

What's your role and what do you like best about your job?
Hi, I am Toni and my role is cook in Wellington. I enjoy my position, particularly the cake making and decorating aspect. I love hearing the customers lovely comments when they have eaten a slice of cake.

What's your favourite drink or item from our menu?
I really enjoy the Tropical smoothie as I find it really refreshing. I also like the Spicy Tuna Melt.

And how about your favourite book from our shelves?
Be your Best Self’  written by Local Author Danielle Brown  MBE — Double Paralympic Gold Medallist. It is aimed at children, giving them advice on loving themselves, feeling confident and achieving the things that they want to do. Even though this is aimed at children I found the advice to be good for adults too.

Which of the ways we like to go about things at Beatons means the most to you and why?  
I love the fact that we have a really good team here at Wellington. We have gelled together really well, which makes for a great atmosphere in the tearoom. The customers notice how well we all get on and are always happy which they love to see. I also like the customers to leave full and happy; it gives me great job satisfaction.

Finally, if you were an animal, what would you be?  
A tiger. They’re fierce, strong, independent and able to adapt in different situations.
