The Garnish: A Podcast for Restaurant People

[Staff Series #6] Logan Hostettler Uses Cross-Training and Communication to Keep Staff Happy

November 8, 2019

Logan Hostettler is the owner of 1894 Lodge in New Washington, Indiana, a town of around 700 people. Hostettler heavily cross-trains his kitchen staff so that everyone knows how to do everything, which really helps on a small team. He also told me about how talking about mental health openly is crucial to the success of his team, and how he’s been able to watch a lot of young people on his staff rise to the occasion when given new responsibilities.
